Mustafa Sal is an indie-pop artist of Pakistani and Italian descent. He is an artist who believes in taking risks and limitless artistic expression. Mustafa flew to Ireland after dropping out of college in 2018 and spent the early part of 2019 writing music and finding his sound. Under his old pseudonym, Sal the Musician, Mustafa released four singles in 2019/20 to great avail, with the tracks getting plenty of radio play and press buzz. Mustafa also spent the latter half of 2019 playing a number of support shows for touring artists including Australian alt-rock legends “You Am I”.
Mustafa Sal’s first single under his new artist name is out now by the title “Wait For You.” The track itself somehow manages to convey a specific feeling without being entirely specific as to what it’s about. There is a conflict between two very separate feelings, one of helplessness and the other of joy. ‘Wait For You’ manages to tell a story both through its visuals and its lyricism.
