Pakistan’s favorite and most iconic pop-rock band, Strings has released the much-anticipated third song from the album “30” titled, Piya Re. The song is being released in collaboration with Cornetto Pop Rock Season 3 after the critical success of their first two tracks, Sajni and Urr Jaoon.
Piya Re is a romantic number capturing the swirling triumph that is young love. Taking a grounded, acoustic route, Strings express the flurry of feelings and emotions that accompany your first love through an amplifying melody and heart-felt lyrics, and leave you with a sense of warmth and optimism, invoking nostalgia in some, and a sense of hope in others.
Written by Anwar Maqsood and Bilal Maqsood, Piya Re features band members Aahad Nayani, Adeel Ali, Haider Ali and Bradley D’Souza. The song has been mixed and mastered by M. Ishaq Nazir.
We can safely say Strings had set the foundation of pop rock in Pakistan rock via their signature sound and inimitable body of work have been playing together since the late 80s is a true marker in what has become one of the most historically significant bands to emerge from South-Asia, ever. Strings won its first international award, MTV Asia’s Favorite Artist India award in 2005 and has continued to win accolades till date. Strings took the reins of Coke Studio from Rohail Hyatt to make a debut with Season 7 in 2014 and produced four consecutive seasons till they bade farewell to the country’s biggest music platform last year with a promise to return with more masterpieces as they now embark on yet another exciting chapter in their musical journey with “30”.
