Track Of The Day: Zahra Haji Fath Ali Tehrani – ‘They Say’

An intuitive wish for peace of mind for her self and for her son, musician & producer Zahra Haji Fath Ali Tehrani has shared her new single ‘They Say’. Full of hypnotic steel pan drums and body percussion inspired by a type of Persian prayer, the track is a meditative reflection on connecting maternal instincts to protect with the universal energies of love and survival.

Informed by her recovery from trauma and her hard won emotional resilience, ‘They Say’ is Zahra’s way of coming to terms with her difficult past and finding light in the darkness. Repeating the reassuring mantra of ““It’ll pass they say / time heals they say” in her lyrics, she gives the sentiment space to reverberate gently within listener’s heads, helping them to slow down and become present too.

The track is accompanied by a celestial set of visuals featuring Zahra and directed by Nia Fekri. Inspired by Celtic folkore, the power of the moon and the ebb and flow of water, the video shows Zahra moving amongst these elements, mirroring the unexpected depth of emotions, both positive and negative, that she encountered on her journey to recovery. Flowing with good intentions, ‘They Say’ is a tender, positive affirmation of personal strength.
