Shakhan's music emerged from a hobby based around a 4 track tape recorder that was picked up for £50. Shakhan had been singer-songwriters before formation Recording on the 4 track led to assembling their own Mac computer based studio. This musical partnership are pleased to present their debut album, with a sound of its own.
"The System" is a set of protest songs that have a dark lyrical content within what is often a bright musical framework.
Shakhan's sound has a strong orchestrated and sometimes classical pulse together with a contemporary feel and a ballad thing going on. This is from a duo where both are singer/songwriters who compose (much of it in score).
The band's music would not be complete without their tight lyrical compositions. They combine rythmn and rhymn with carefully selected symbolic structures. Instruments you will hear include amongst others: acoustic guitar, bass guitar, electric guitar, cello, flute, mouth organ and piano.
The album has been reviewed by Keith 'MuzikMan' Hannaleck.
"I truly admire this artist (Davyd) for having the intestinal fortitude to write and sing about what really goes on inside his mind, many of us would never dare....This is life, this is truth, these are thoughts from dark places"
