Brooklyn-based quintet Habibi formed in the spring of 2011 by Detroit-native Rahill Jamalifard and Lenaya Lynch, who bonded over their love of Middle Eastern psych music. Tapping into their Motown roots of simple but infectious pop melodies delivered with punkish attitude, the two recruited Erin Campbell (guitar/bass) and Karen Isabel (drums), and the band were quick to receive critical accolades, with their self-titled Burger Records debut heralded by The New Yorker as 'stunning'.

'Unexpected, exciting, and, as always, catchy as hell' — i-D Magazine
'They have the Colgate-white glisten of sixties girl-group pop, with the uncensored edge of flower-gal liberation.' — The New Yorker
