“Voices In My Head”
Human By Default
February 10th, 2023
Bedouin reveals their entrancing lead single “Voices In My Head” from their long-awaited debut album Temple of Dreams, coming later this year. “Voices In My Head” features Tamer Malki and Rami Abousabe showcasing their vocals in a mystic duet that weaves thrumming energy through a swath of commanding percussion. The single releases on February 10th via the Miami-based duo’s label Human by Default.
The musicians, singer-songwriters, and producers have spent the better part of a decade fine-tuning their sound, which draws as much from their Middle Eastern heritage as it does their world travels as DJs playing iconic venues across the globe. Selecting “Voices In My Head” was an important choice to set the tone for the album, which Malki explains is a chance to “experiment and push the boundaries.” It differs from their previous work, as the album is intended to be a deep listening experience for the fans, rather than a slew of club cuts. The multi-talented artists sought to create a timeless sound in Temple of Dreams. Malki outlines that the album lies between “what we play on stages around the world and what we’re capable of writing and producing as musicians and producers. We wanted to exceed expectations and present something that you might think or feel you’ve heard before, yet it’s something completely new—not what might be expected from us.”
Pulling influences from “all across the musical spectrum, from different eras,” Bedouin felt that “Voices In My Head” was the song that best defines what this next chapter means to them. Abousabe shares that the track “captures the overall essence of the album. It was one of the first duets that features both Tamer and myself. It felt very much like Bedouin, and that’s why we’re starting with an original from the two of us.”
As they prepare to embark on their first-time album release and their beloved Saga residency at top Ibiza club Pacha, Bedouin brings mystique and complexity to the dancefloor with “Voices In My Head”. The genre-bending new music from Bedouin is the sign of two artists at the top of their game.
