FLOUR – MONDAY MUSIC!

To warm up this freezing Monday FLOUR’s Monday Music has a upbeat, nostalgic sound. Dead Wrong by Hanni El Khatib:

Previously a creative director for a skateboard fashion label and a designer for an advertising agency Hanni El Khatib states that his raw back-to-basics sound is designed for “anyone who has ever been shot or hit by a train.”  Luckily we haven’t been – but we still love the sound!

There’s a lot more to this multi instrumentalist than quotes aimed to shock and while some of his tracks continue to menace and enthrall in equal measure there are a couple of more melodic offerings such as today’s Monday Music.  At FLOUR we think combining a sixties rockabilly sound with doo-wop backing vocals and Vampire Weekend-esque hooks makes for a compelling sound – let us know if you agree!
