Pepsi Battle Of The Bands Finalists Have Officially Divided Pakistanis And We're Here For It πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

By MangoBaaz Studio | 20 Aug, 2018

Pepsi Battle of the Bands is synonymous with giving budding underground musicians a chance to sprout into mainstream music β€” especially after the success of eP and Aaroh in the past cycles and the very trippy Kashmir in the last season. Struggling musicians who were previously trying to play odd gigs or sharing their music on Soundcloud and such, finally made it to the centerstage and the music, oh my God, the music. After the top four were announced, the competition got more and more intense.

Tamasha chose to go with “Tumhain Kese Bata Doon” by Ahmed Rushdi but with a 80s rework which didn’t quite impress the judges.

To no surprise (because of the early fandom these guys garnered), Xarb came on with a groovy disco number “Jhanjhar Di Pawan Chankar” that was an instant hit.

 

We’re HERE FOR IT.

Shout-out to the lead singer Qamar’s equally groovy jacket.

On the other end, Bayaan’s performance was equally stellar with Naheed Akhtar’s well-known classic “Tha Yakeen

 

It was soulful, especially with the rubab

 

And it’s always nice to see this yummy face ~

So, here we have our two finalists for the coveted competition: Xarb and Bayaan

Pepsi Battle of the Bands will now be renamed to Xarb vs Bayaan, at least until one becomes victorious. Pakistanis are equally divided about who to place their bets on.

 

Team Xarb just can’t wait…

 

Team Bayaan also not coming in slow…

 

 

Legit crying happy tears

How will we ever pick between the two???

 

SAME BRUH, SAME.

Xarb has been consistently performing, pleasing the judges and earning a sweet spot in their fans hearts with their east meets west fusion. Bayaan, however, has shown promising growth throughout the season, incorporating feedback from the industry gurus, mixing things up and showing us how badly they want this. Who will you be voting for? Let us know in the comments section below.
