Having held Indikasi Vol.2 Primata Mini Showcase successfully, Indikasi is back with Volume 2.2 with a special guest coming from Yogyakarta which is Auretté and The Polska Seeking Carnival (AATPSC). Indikasi Vol. 2.2 that will be held on Friday, December 23rd 2016 at Kedutaan Besar Bekasi, Jl Raya Jatikramat No. 2A, Jatiasih, Bekasi will also have several Bekasi indendent bands to perform as the opening acts, they are Indigo Moire, Sir Lommar John and Pathway Pleasure. Sir Lommar John in particular, will release their debut mini album during the gig, which later on it will also be available to be downloaded for free through music sharing platform, Ripstore Asia.
Auretté and The Polska Seeking Carnival’s showcase on Indikasi Vol.2.2 also coincide with their latest single release which was launched back in August 2016. After going on hiatus from 2014 to pursue their academic business, the band secretly got back together from the end of 2015 and recorded a single called “Melerai Lara”. The single which can be downloaded for free through Ripstore Asia, becomes an oasis for AATPSC’s fans who have been waiting for their new material. The folk band that is made up of Dhima Christian Datu (vocal, accordion, ukulele), Aurelia Marshal (ukulele, keyboard, synthesizer, vocal), Danny Rachman (bass), Ahmad Mursid (trumpet), Bayu Atmojo (trombone), and Aris Setyawan (drum, percussion) are now in the midst of preparing their sophomore album. Previously they have released their self-titled debut album in 2013 via Tomat Records and Elevation Records in cassette, CD, and vinyl format.
“Melerai Lara” sounds slightly different from AATPSC’s previous endeavors, starting from its ambience down to its lyrics. This time Auretté and The Polska Seeking Carnival are trying to write the lyrics in Indonesian instead of English. “Melerai Lara” tells about someone who can not be him/herself. Society, norm and the world create boundaries for one to express himself, and the charm gets imprisoned within those invisible borders. Indikasi Vol. 2.2 will welcome Auretté and The Polska Seeking Carnival to Bekasi and provide a chance for them to play their songs from their debut album as well as new materials. See you on Friday!
