Hi Mom! – “Penghuni Telinga”
Having been experienced the ups and downs in Surabaya’s indie music scene for 9 years, veteran band Hi Mom! is about to have their first full album called “The Youth Is The Real Time Bomb”. Considering the longevity of their age, it’s surprising that they haven’t put out an album format. Hi!Mom was established in 2007 and has gone through few member changes until now it consists of Indra A. Surya (guitar), Khukuh A. Yuda (vocals, guitar), Adil Alba (bass), Eri Rukmana (keyboard, synthesizer), and Giovanni Dananjaya (drums). According to the press release that we received, Hi Mom! can be said as an alternative band with various genres fused into one that makes this band unique.
“Penghuni Telinga” is the first single from their upcoming album that was released on October 1st 2016. Upbeat drums and guitar sound open the single and we were captivated by the vocals which uses a set of falsetto. There’s a whisper in the middle of the song that really complete the purpose of the single which tells about negative influences that are whispered to us. Overall we enjoy the ride of what Hi Mom! offer with this single. It is dynamically pleasing to hear even though it’s a little bit hard to figure out the mumbled words from the singing. It has a little bit of folk influence and alternative rock to it. You could listen to “Penghuni Telinga” on the audio player above, and it will be released widely 2 weeks from now on iTunes and Spotify.
