Review: Hard Rock band HAIQEEM’s new single ‘Penance’


Jukebox Times is today reviewing a new single by Hard Rock band HAIQEEM. It is titled Penance and is an enthralling song. The single starts with a stunning melody and powerful vocals by Haiqeem. The guitars and drums blend wonderfully. However, the main asset of the song is passionate wordplay. When Haiqeem sings, “When in the end nobody wins…nobody wins…”, the lyrics dart in our hearts like a spear (sensational songwriting too!)! In Penance, the band has showcased a stunning ability to craft meaningful lyrics. And thus it sounds quite distinct compared to their previous songs such as Don’t Give A Damn and Sorrow. 

Overall, HAIQEEM impressed us and the sheer magnificence in their music is apparent in Penance. Their fans and music lovers would definitely await future releases from the super talented band. The acoustic version of Penance was released on the 12th of October. Whereas the Radio Edit version will be released on the 19th of October. Also, according to our sources, the band will release a full-length LP titled Without My Permission.

However, keep an eye on their official social media for updates about the album release.
