Habibi is back!

Habibi - Dreamachine & "On The Road"!
New album + single!
Habibi returns with their highly anticipated album "Dreamachine," out May 31st on Kill Rock Stars & available for pre-order now. Today, Habibi unveils their lead single "On The Road" and we couldn't be more excited to share it with you all!

Co-founded by Detroit natives Rahill Jamalifard and Lenny Lynch, Habibi got its start in Brooklyn in 2011, earning early raves everywhere from Pitchfork and NME to All Things Considered and The New Yorker, who praised the band for infusing “the Colgate-white glisten of sixties-girl-group pop with an uncensored edge.Dreamachine, Habibi’s mesmerizing new record out May 31 on Kill Rock Stars, marks a major sonic evolution for the band, rising beyond the critically acclaimed five-piece’s garage rock roots to arrive at a singular swirl of analog and digital elements that underpin their search for spiritual and physical transcendence. Produced by Tyler Love and longtime collaborator Jay Heiselmann and featuring MGMT multi-instrumentalist James Richardson, the collection draws on a mix of post-punk, experimental pop, and vintage disco, calling to mind Tom Verlaine, Diana Ross, Kate Bush, and Kim Deal, all filtered through the band’s shared love of Middle Eastern psych music. The songs here are their own distinct worlds, each an immersive quest in pursuit of something greater, and the band’s performances are relentless and hypnotic to match, driven by lush synthesizers, sinewy guitars, and a muscular rhythm section. The result is a record as fearless as it is enthralling, an alternatingly fierce and joyous work that ascends to new heights as it reckons with desire and escape, love and surrender, rebellion and reality.

"Dreams are a refuge to us, they are the invisible string that connects us to the unknown, the magical realm that never fully comes into focus. Dreamachine is an ode to that alchemy, a cosmic odyssey of synth-driven rhythms and space-age love. Each song serves as a keyhole into an infinite room, a sonic invitation through interstellar dance floors and lush soundscapes."
-Rahill & Lenny 
On The Road" starts the engine roaring to life for Dreamachine’s evocative rhythms and sets the tone for this new odyssey. Seamlessly riding the edge of punk with hypnotic loops and off-kilter guitars, this track is a testament to the band’s evolution. Pulsating through an ominous fog, Rahill defiantly admonishes to take warning and we realize these angels have teeth.

“'On The Road' is a driving anthemic contemplation, drenched in synths and distorted guitars matched with cool unattached punk vocals. Distant but persistent, a sonic drive through the trivialities and city grime, into the light."
