The latest offering from LA-based Somali sister-duo Faarrow (Iman and Siham Hashi) is upbeat even when serving the real. The lyrics to what could be many folks’ personal anthem sound out the frustrations of a generation living under the yoke of “slay” and Instagrammable (or not) lives and those who flourish around you even as you’re still making your way in the world. Are you an artist, different from your peers or what society dictates you should be doing? Are you perhaps a fish out of water, and trying hard to swim against the tide? When will it be your day? Is it today? Will you wait a few more years? Do you know where you’re going? Hells yes, the world just doesn’t know it yet. This song could be about you.
“You can say what you want about me…
Cause I know where I’m going
Just don’t know how or when
Yeah I’m working the lobby
But I’ll be up in the Pent”
Sing it Faarrow, sing it for all of us fanning this fire inside, who aren’t lost!
