TIDAL, from Spy Convention mixes the pop sensibility of the synth-heavy 80's with decades past to current alternative pop. The result is a surprisingly cohesive album that might sound perfectly fine in the 1950s through to the present day.

Album Notes
Band origins can be as much an adventure as the music, but who would have ever thought that 2 immigrants, one from India and one from Pakistan would get together and decide to write music? If that doesn't seem so far- fetched, throw in the fact that both immigrated to the US at a very young age yet they only recently met. To really complicate things, both are practicing physicians with their own busy offices. Zafar Sheik, an ophthalmologist and Asif Khan, an allergist are also fathers and husbands who never could have imagined a chance meeting at their kids' school function in 2014 would result in writing, producing, recording, mixing and mastering songs all on their own. But that's exactly how Spy Convention became a songwriting duo.

Both play instruments, Zafar on mainly vocals and keyboards, and Asif playing the drums and guitars. Asif has a history in the music industry and played for various NYC bands. He tasted a bit of 'mild success,' videos on MTV, world tours, US tours, but never achieved the goal of many musicians: to be able to make music a career. Zafar comes from a musical family and his sister, a lawyer in LA, nearly made it to the top herself.

So what gives, and why bother with professional careers in tow? It is their love of music that drives them, albeit each coming from different ends of the pop/rock spectrum. Zafar loves alt-indie emo like The National and maybe has heard Rush songs. Asif cut his teeth on rock bands such as Rush, and has become a big fan of new Alt/Indies bands. One strong influence is certain: they both LOVE the 80's! This crazy dynamic makes for lots of ideas and definitely keeps them laughing. Dr. Khan muses, "We are approaching this with just a little apprehension but complete honesty, with the goal of having fun and sharing our music."
