احنا بنات حواء
سيدي لا تتدخل
عمرك سمعت عنا؟
احنا و بنات عمنا

احنا بنات حواء
سيدي ما تتعلم؟
فتح مخك شوية
وتنفس دنيا حرية

يوم ورى يوم
احنا مقهورين
و يوم ورى يوم
احنا مقاتلين

احنا بنات حواء
سيدي لا تتدخل
في شي سمعته عنا؟
احنا و بنات عمنا

يوم ورى يوم
احنا مقهورين
و يوم ورى يوم
احنا مقاتلين


رح انضلنا مقاتلين
 

مصيره النار

The dream pop/electronic experimental EP consists of four tracks, playing for almost 17 minutes as a whole. The whole EP feels like stepping into a river knees deep, yet it is still daylight, so you still move your hands to the music while having the stream eat your legs. Beginning with the curious and groovy first track After Loath, then the second track Come Between hits different notes and your dance differs a bit, but you’re still in the river, the sun is getting hotter, and your fingers are still dancing when the third track I’m Not Fading comes along holding you for six minutes of rhythm. And finally, the lyrics-free Drop The Curtains has you by the feet to the head, ending the EP mystically. 

The highlight of the album to me is definitely Drop The Curtains, in which, to me personally, Salem truly shines and gives us a piece of him to experience to what feels like a split second taken from a huge time lapse. The fusion of spacey sounds, old vinyl playing at the background, and careful stirs of  electronic sounds create a mix that captures the quiet explosion Salem was trying give to his audience through this EP.
