Vintage

Verse
Take me to the Friday market
Sell me off, be done with the likes of me
Put me in a crappy shopping cart
Push me off the highest skyscraper
Chorus
Dead are the days when I was your love
Gone are the days when I was your love
Vintage are the days I was your love
Beware! The promises of new generation.
Verse
Take me to the Friday market
She tells me your song has no benefit
Sell me off, cheaper than a chicklet
Put me in the middle of a whale’s stomach
Chorus
Dead are the days when I was your love
Gone are the days when I was your love
Vintage are the days I was your love
Beware! The promises of new generation.

Verse I

ودّيني ودّيني سوق الجمعة

بيعيني بيعيني من كل امثالي بتفتكّين

حطّيني حطّيني في عربانة سكراب

دزّيني دزّيني من أعلى ناطحة سحاب

أيام ماتت أيام ماتت كنت لك حبيب

أيام فاتت أيام ماتت كنت لك حبيب

كنت لك حبيب vintage أيام

دير بالك من وعود الجيل الجديد

Verse II

ودّيني ودّيني سوق الجمعة

تقول لي تقول لي أغنيتك ما منها فائدة

بيعيني بيعيني أرخص من الكتكوت

حطّيني حطّيني في وسط بطن حوت

Music & Lyrics

Chapter 1

Kuwaisiana’s, Chapter 1, is an awesomely interesting release by an equally intriguing band from New Orleans with bridges to Kuwait who combine the vernacular of topics between there and the US southern region. They cross bread everything from Cajun to Pop music in their combination of styles that never leave out the two areas in which they’re grounded, yet they have a universal appeal in the process. Chapter 1 wins on that premise alone.” James McQuiston, Editor at NeuFutur

Drawing fitfully from their surrounds, the septet’s sonics are bolstered by bursts of brass and the lilt of (apparently synthesized) accordion, conjuring a rootsy, Cajun vibe around +Aziz’s raw, DIY-rock approach. At the best moments, a barn-storming, street-party abandon overcomes these slightly flat, self-produced recordings… But there is a potent spice found amid this audio stew. Split into two “sides” — the first in Arabic, the second English — the lyrics on “Chapter 1” carry subtle weight as a reflection on the modern Arab experience.” Martin Wingham, Arab News

Given the current banal state of popular music, an album and a band like Kuwaisiana are just the tonic that is needed… So here’s to Kuwaisiana for treading new ground and charting a new path. In a musical landscape that sometimes feels too cookie-cutter and too safe, Kuwaisiana are paving new ground, and hot damn, it is awe-inspiring.” Greg Robson, Step Inside This House
