Obscure’s upcoming album protests Rohingya genocide
‘Shimantey fer manusher dhol namchey/ Pichmora bish dhele chutey geche brishchik/ Naf nodijol periye ashtey hochche/ Ora o manush rashtro bihin nagorik ...’ Obscure brings forth the Rohingya issue in their new album, even though this was not something they had originally planned on doing. Titled ‘Stop Genocide’, the song is written by Amit Goswami and lead vocalist Tipu shares that through such songs, one can protest these murders and tortures unraveling on our borders. The song was released on September 23 on Obscure’s own YouTube channel. The full album is set to come out mid-October, since according to Tipu the atmosphere does not currently allow it, and so all eight songs will at present be available on their YouTube channel only. “Although the album name is generally decided once all the songs are completed, this time we did not wait,” says Tipu, “and as we all liked this song so much, the album is also named Stop Genocide after the seventh song of the album.” “This song is not only in protest of the Rohingya situation at hand but also against all the genocides in the world. For now, we have only released the lyrical video, and on the 15th the main video will be up on YouTube,” says Tipu. Obscure’s 11th and most recent album came last year and was called Crack Platoon. The song ‘Crack Platoon’ and ‘Porowana’ became hits from that album.
