TUNE Chez Ali - Blue Cheese
”Interesting music that straddles the line between experimental and accessible with ease"” - Pigeons & Planes
Chez Ali is the brainchild of Stockholm musician Elias Mahfoud. Elias initially started working on Chez Ali when living in London 2014-15, making sounds that channelled the British capital's soulful indie sound in his very own way.
On debut single ‘Blue Cheese’, Chez Ali blends jazz-tinged chord progressions with swaying indie rock instrumentals, led by his fragile -- yet confident, smooth vocal tones.
Speaking on the lyrical inspiration behind his first release, Chez Ali explains: ”Blue Cheese deals with the insecurities and paranoia that can arise when you suspect a relationship is nearing its end whilst also knowing there’s nothing you can do about it”.
After working with the project on-and-off since its conception in London, Elias performed it live for the first time in Stockholm towards the end of 2017 to rapturous praise. Elias is finally ready to share Chez Ali in 2018 with debut single 'Blue Cheese’ out today February 13th via rising Stockholm indie Rama Lama Records.
