'Today Is Tomorrow' is a mistranslation of the name of an Amazonian shaman with a pyramid-shaped head whose name could also mean 'The End of Time'. It is an imaginary band crafted by sole member Adham Zidan (The Invisible Hands, Procession Towards The Unknown) to flesh out arrangements to his songs.
Recorded in two decrepit homes across Cairo with minimal equipment, 'What's To Want' is the soundtrack to a battle between escapism and elevation. Musically influenced by the timeless melodies of the great European composers, the rhythm of Tropicalia, and the song-forms of that moment before psych turned to prog, it is an alchemical suite where the city is vacated of all its inhabitants and filled with the quiet air of the forest at dawn.
