In the wake of the revolution of January 25th 2011, many cool bands emerged and many of them have managed to survive and meet commercial success. However most of these bands had some kind of political leaning. While the music was alternative and fresh, the themes and the messages were all about change. One band had a different take. The world will know them as Sharmoofers. They seem a lot more like Bowling for Soap feel.
This is an indie band that and never wanted to talk about anything serious, they have no issues to care about and they do not pretend to have an impact on Egyptian youth or leaders. They wanted to make dope music, sick beats and have fun. Sharmoofers has no social message, their motto "music to make people happy"
They sing about random things (and sometimes silly) matters, but they keep it fresh and their music is something else. Most of the time, people do not make sense of what these guys are saying, but they know they like it. They band has their critics too, but they forget that the goal here is to entertain and not to ask people do things differently.
I like how they use a bit of rap, Reggae, and pop to excite people around whatever topic they feel like tackling.
