Track of the week... SHEIKH - FONDA

Sheikh are a fresh new band hailing from Bahrain and are now residing in London, they bring with them their first ever song titled "FONDA", it's got everything you want from a band's first song, energy, anthematic guitars and catchy as heck grooves and lyrics. Their sound can be compared to The Maccabees crossed with Bombay Bicycle Club, and that's no coincidence.


"FONDA" was produced with the Grammy winning producer Ian Dowling (Jungle, Bombay Bicycle Club, Catfish & The Bottlemen ) which is due to be released in January 2015. Following a run of fervent rehearsals and reckless initiations at their rehearsal space in Shepherd's Bush, the attention surrounding the band has promptly started to rise. They're bursting onto the scene at the right time, could the UK music scene be given a new lease of life by some Bahrainis with sun-kissed guitars? Well their country already has one big attraction, the F1 race in the desert, and possibly as of 2015 a band that's going to be a household name in years to come!
