“The Scrap Army” is a Scrap/ Punk/ Indie/ Alternative rock band founded in 2010, by Canadian-Pakistani Vocalist Urvah Khan.
Growing her sound with Canadian producer/ guitarist Ruben Huizenga since 2010 in Toronto Canada, Khan returned to her country of birth in 2016 and debuted “The Scrap Army” as “Pakistan’s first female-fronted English rock band.”
Through a video that went viral on Facebook, Urvah Khan expressed her intention to return to Pakistan, hold auditions for a full Pakistani line up, and try to grow a platform for more brown girls to get involved in rock music. Not too long after rehearsals began in Karachi, the first lineup was assembled & the debut Karachi show took place at Base Rock Café In January 2017.
The Scrap Army’s sound borrows from a wide range of genres, but the band calls it’s music “Scrap Rock,” a mash-up of Eastern & Western rock music styles. While touring Khan assembles a live band featuring a revolving lineup of musicians.
(The Canadian production/ live team consists of: vocalist Urvah Khan, guitarist Ruben Huizenga, bassist Oscar Anesetti & Juwayon Clarke & drummer/ percussionists Ken Griffin & Aaron Spink.)
