New KOMINAS track and video called #BANANA read about it on the Fader

http://www.thefader.com/2014/09/11/the-kominas-banana-video

”..Pakistani-American band’s sunny, singable garage-punk jam, “Banana,” the first of five new videos they plan to film and release before the year’s out. Shot on VHS, the lo-fi footage follows the four-piece as they dart around Philadelphia—on rooftops, through grocery stores—their harmless, slightly subversive humor shining bright. There’s a lot of actual bananas in it, even though the song is lyrically about hoping someone does’t go crazy. ”It’s a post-punk song for children about struggling with religion and identity issues,” the band says over e-mail.  Even if you lose your mind and go bananas/ I’ll stay by your side. It’s pretty sweet, actually.” - Fader magazine

Spring time reminds me that we put out “Chai” almost two years ago. A lot of people have asked for the lyrics so here you go.

Sunny Ali and the Kid “Chai”:

"Through the days of emotionless changes in seasons 

they want you believing the oceans divide

they occupy your mind.

Now I’ve never loved you if I’ve never warned you

your freedom of speech is a beacon of love

don’t be shy.

Had enough of your reasons i’m going off the deep end

I’m guessing it depends on the buzz

from your chai.

DON’T GROW NUMB TO WHATS GOING ON

COME ALONG BROTHERS, STAND STRONG

DON’T GROW NUMB TO WHATS GOING ON

STAND STRONG.

STAND STRONG.”

"Iranian photographer Shadi Ghadirian’s studio portraits inspired by early images from the Qajar dynasty (1794–1925); she juxtaposes the past with the present: a modern woman in traditional hijab hoisting a boombox over her shoulder."
