In the year 2000, a band from Pakistan made its mark in India with the release of a track that gained immensely popularity. The track was called Duur, and the band, Strings. Fuelled by the popularity of that song, Strings became a sensation in India, soon finding themselves on the soundtracks of Bollywood, and even Hollywood, films.

On Saturday, in celebration of 30 years of making music – the band was originally founded as a quartet in 1988 – two of the founders, Bilal Maqsood and Faisal Kapadia, released a music video (above) for a new single titled Sajni.

The pop-rock band went for a retro vibe in the video, directed by Yasir Jaswal, in an attempt to explore their roots and cultivate a fresh sound. At the same time, the aim was to capture the essence of what its music is and has been all about.

Sajni is going to be part of a new album aptly titled 30.
