"Pioneers of the underground movement of Iran rock music, Kiosk has been praised for their sharp, smart and satirical lyrics that highlight the paradoxes of Iranian society and the incompetent political system. Kiosk's unique sound is accented by flavors of gypsy-style violin, accordion, and mandolin, and the songs are complemented by meaningful lyrics which provide a sharp sociopolitical satire of Iran today."
