about

A hero of the burgeoning alternative Australian music scene, Canberra born singer and producer Shoeb Ahmad’s debut solo record, ‘Watch/Illuminate’, is a masterpiece of ambient drone and gorgeous minimal melodicism. His debut solo album (Watch/Illuminate) finds a perfect balance between space-y, cinematic soundscapes and delicate, chiming chill wave pop.

Drawing influence from past masters of ambient song-writing such as Talk Talk and shoegaze legends Slowdive as well as contemporary electronica producers including James Blake and Toro Y Moi, ‘Watch/Illuminate’ is a fascinating synergy of old and new, a hinterland crossroads of the ever-shifting face of contemporary pop music. Produced at home in Canberra and on the road throughout the south-eastern territories of Oz, NZ and Asia, ‘Watch/Illuminate’ is a document of one man’s travels across seas and oceans, deserts and savannah. Guest performers include Columbian singer Lucrecia Perez and acclaimed sound artist Lawrence English.

“Watch / Illuminate” is a must listen." - Future Sequence
