LAHORE: After the successful release of Kon Hai Who, Rocklite is all set to release their second single Ghussay Vich. The only touring member of renowned 90s band Vital Signs Rizwan-ul-Haq continues on his journey for the love of music with his band Rocklite and releases their second single.

Ghussay Vich takes us back to a story based on narrative with powerful, deep baritone vocal texture of Bilal Ashraf - the lead singer of the band. Rizwan-ul-Haq and Parham Faraid have played the guitars with shades of Sufi rock with his signature 90s rhythm. Allan Smith is on the drums and has been in music industry for over 25 years and has also played with bands like Junoon; Imran Hanan is on the bass alongside Varqa Faraid who has played keyboards and done sound design for the music video as well. The song is written by Sarfraz Hussain Zia, composition and arrangement is done by Rizwan-ul-Haq and Sarmad Ghafoor.

The video has been directed by Ali Sattar and takes the audience into a journey tracking down the daughter of the protagonist after the young girl runs away from her home after witnessing her father argue with her mother. Music video is produced by 33 productions; Ali Sattar has also written the story and is the colorist. Aamir Mughal is the cinematographer while Sultan Laskir is the assistant director.

The music video stars Waqas Shahzad, Jawad Rana, Daheem Qaiser and Ember Khan Baloch. Rizwan-ul-Haq says: “As a society the least we could do is to treat each other with politeness; kindness is infectious, I want to see a tolerant society I leave behind for my future generations; I hope Ghussay Vich will play its part”

Bilal Ashraf says: “Men have built far too many walls and not many bridges, I sincerely hope after watching our music video of Ghussay Vich; the audience will think twice before picking up arguments with their fellow human beings over petty things.
