Imaad Wasif: 'Unveiling'


Imaad Wasif has a brooding voice that compliments the hazy psychedelic rock of his backing band, Two Part Beast. His latest album, Strange Hexes, explores folk and Americana with drones and modern experimental effects.

"Unveiling," the second track, begins with a mellow guitar riff played hard against a slow, reserved rhythm section. As the tempo picks up, Wasif's voice remains calm and soft against the roar of a psychedelic guitar solo.

With experience with bands like Alaska!, The New Folk Implosion and Lowercase on his resume, Wasif is a veteran in the indie rock scene. He is known as a skilled guitarist, and was once toured with the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. The L.A. based musician will tour mainly on the West Coast this spring.
