The influence of American music has reached all corners of the globe. From the early rock n roll of the 1950’s to the modern electronic pop music of today, musicians from many countries have taken pieces and refined it into their own sound. Our latest discovery Jehangir Aziz Hayat seems unlikely to have found the alternative grunge sound of early 1990’s America but he has mastered it and taken it to new levels.
Although born in 1989 in Pakistan, Jehangir Aziz Hayat dove full force into the Grunge Sound that changed the American Rock music landscape when he was a child. He began writing and composing music when he was 12 years old. At the beginning, Hayat did not want to play a musical instrument but guitar lessons brought him out of his shell and opened up an amazing world of music for him.
The sound that Jehangir Aziz Hayat has developed for himself is a mix of hard alternative rock of the grunge era and the tranquil aspect of the Pashtun culture. His biggest musical influences include Nirvana, Pantera and Megadeth.
He first hit with “Never Change”, released in 2004, which made him the first grunge musician in Pakistan to appear on the national scene. The recognition has led to some big things and a string of great songs.
The latest from Jehangir Aziz Hayat is the song “Bleeding Comfort”. The raw grunge energy shines through immediately. The gravelly yet powerful vocals bring me back to one of the best times in alt-rock. This is a track that will get the blood moving a little bit faster in your veins as year heart picks up the beat. Some quality guitar work and winding interesting solo. This is what alt-rock music was when it was at its peak. Jehangir will keep it going for all of us.
