Amid anguished cries that the political edge is missing from modern music - and at a time when there's a dire need - the arrival of Cashmere couldn't be more fitting. A quick glance at global headlines shows an increasingly marginalized approach to our ethnic/cultural differences, none more affected than Western Muslims, and by implication - and racial profiling - anyone who bears a slight resemblance.
The Swet Shop Boys seek to further broaden our understanding, an ambition that’s right there in the title. To Westerners, cashmere is a luxury textile; to South Asians, it’s the site of a violent territorial dispute between India and Pakistan that hinges on questions of identity. It’s a perfect title for a project that blurs the lines between all of these perspectives, that stunts as much as it elucidates, and which ties up all of these messy ideas into a refreshingly expansive vision of South Asian identity.
