More simply, they make music you that you can seriously chill to.
The Berkeley-based duo's debut effort Something Like Nostalgia, out July 21 from Dynamaphone, is aptly named: Its airy compositions sounds like they've leapt fully formed out of Twin Peaks or 4AD's back catalog. They differ in that the Abbasi Bros often first formulate their songs using math, before letting them organically evolve into soundscapes. But just because Yousuf was a math major doesn't mean they make math rock.
"The complex theorems and properties of math I learned do not enter our music the way you are thinking," Yousuf explains. "It's simpler than that."
