Hypernova: An Iranian Rock Band In Brooklyn
NPR / Sheereen Meraji

It was time to check back with Hypernova, because an American record label has just released the band's debut album, and because the musicians now call Brooklyn home. Raam lives in Williamsburg, where it's practically a crime not to rock. Every other hipster walking to the subway looks like he or she is in a band.
