Abhi The Nomad is a rare gem and I say that without overstating his uniqueness. He first crossed my radar with the hard hitting edgy tune WarHeads but his latest project Where Are My Friends [EP] shows a
different side of his creativity. Musically Where Are My Friends [EP] taps into several genres while keeping the integrity of the plot. it is experimental enough not to lose the listener in a pot pourri of sounds
and pretty much serves up relatable subject matter from song to song. At 7 tracks long, Where Are My Friends [EP] refrains from being long winded and engaging so you can easily get into the thick of things and
relive the vibe Abhi brings over and over again.

Abhi The Nomad’s new EP is his sophomore release and garners a new eclectic indie, hip-hop alternative sound that takes influence from the
likes of Beck, Arctic Monkeys, Queens of the Stone Age, Earl Sweatshirt, Aesop Rock and El-P.
Following his previous debut, “Beginning”, WAMF is a 7 track EP that tells the journey of a lone wanderer, and his accounts with awkward social events, fake internet fame, suicide and self-esteem. The song “Download God” is a prime example of Abhi’s lyrical capabilities as he runs through his experience of walking into a dim-lit room, personified as the internet. The second track “Soul Safety Administration” takes a glance into what it means to go to heaven, and tells the listener to join the SSA, take their own life and escape their current worries through suicide. “Anti-matter” is another well-themed track that condemns conspiracy theories and misinformed ideologies alike.
Though harboring some pretty dark and broody tones and lyrical content, the EP thrives off funky and groovy rhythmic patterns and upbeat melodies.
