Funky Pop Cool
Karim Fanous scooped Best Singer/Songwriter at 2007’s Glasswerk New Music Awards and it’s clear to see why with energetic tunes and bright, charismatic vocals. ‘Drama Queen’ has the verve and drama of singers like Mika with rich vocals, a bold bassline and jangly guitarwork. It’s a fun and frivolous pop song that does exactly what pop songs should do. ‘Superbug’ is a groove laden, funked-up number with stylish guitars and smooth, jazzy vocal work that matches with the licentious subject matter. It’s like Red Hot Chili Peppers at full tilt with velvet smooth delivery.
Karim Fanous certainly has style and originality in his work and mixes rock energy with upbeat pop melodies to create a sound that’s funky and radio friendly.
