releases brand new single ‘Off@Night’
Today Anwar shares a fresh new track, ‘Off@Night’, available to stream now. With an insistent guitar riff and skittish drumbeats building to an accomplished, urgent grunge track, which marks Anwar out as a defiant upcoming artist to watch in 2021. Accompanied by a video directed and shot by his close friends Arben and Kuj Durollari, it follows Anwar into bodegas, down darkly lit streets and onto rooftops on a night out in New York City.
Anwar began writing ‘Off@Night’ in Los Angeles and later finished it in London, where habitually he finishes all of his music. Produced by Joey Francis, Brian Foarde, Brendan Grieve, and Jay Mooncie, the track is the first taste of Anwar’s extended body of work, to be expected later this year. ‘Off@Night’ started life as a riff which Anwar couldn’t stop playing one night in session with Joey Francis, and is inspired by inarticulate irritation – that feeling in the moments when you lack the right words to adequately express yourself. Those moments can be frustrating, but sometimes that frustration leads to honest art.
Twenty-one-year-old Anwar Hadid was born and raised in Los Angeles. He spends time in LA, London, and New York City.
