'Ali Azimi and the Need' were formed at the end of 2012 following the success of frontman Ali Azimi's previous band Radio Tehran. The wealth of musical experience from these British and Persian musicians easily moves them through energetic Rock to delicate Middle Eastern melody, with nods toward Latin and Jazz. Their eclectic fusion of sound has rapidly established them as a leading force within the Iranian music scene.
Their debut album "Aghaye Past" ("Mr.Mean") was extremely well received and was described as "one of the best Iranian albums of 2013". Included on this was the hit song/video and now live favourite "Pishdaramad".
2013 and 2014 have seen the band tour round their native UK, Europe and North America, as well as numerous TV appearances on Manato TV and BBC Persia.
