Spanning several genres, from alternative pop to hip-hop, and a smattering of RnB sensibility, 'eyephone (look up).' sees Dabieh take aim at society's obsession with smartphones. The song's emotional chord is one of a longing to see a return to real human connection.


Inspired by a train journey, when helping an older woman to sit down, he noted the passivity and distraction - due to phones - of the commuters around him. This instant realisation allowed him to reconcile his worries, penning the song initially as a poem, as his tangible reaction to those ideas.


Further elaborating on his work, Dabieh said, "Don't you remember when we held hands not glass? I do. At least I think I do. At least I hope I do. At least I know I want to believe I do. That grey wave of passive listlessness when we reach for our phones, not each other. That's this, and this is that."



Succeeding across multiple disciplines, Dabieh has written, produced and executive produced records with the likes of Fred Again.., Lancey Foux, Lola Young & many more. As joint founder of Cloud X, Dabieh is helping to pave a way forward for the landscape of alternative music in the UK.


With Cloud X's fourth instalment of its summer festival taking place soon, the label and creative hub is one of the key organisations of the UK's music scene. As both a talented musician, and a facilitator of creative prowess, Dabieh is shining as a multi-faceted creative.
