One of Indonesia’s most hyped indie outfits to have emerged in recent years has been Grrrl Gang (aka Angeeta Sentana, Akbar Rumandung and Edo Alventa).
They’re back today with an anthemic punk banger called ‘Spunky!’, which was inspired by a manic episode that Angeeta had experienced:
“I feel like I’m on top of the world, untouchable. I do things without thinking, always chasing after that feeling of instant gratification. I feel extra confident in myself – to a point of grandiose thinking—and that I could do anything.”
The track’s production showcases a sound that bold, impactful and immediately arresting.
‘Spunky’ is lifted from the trio’s upcoming album of the same name (out 22nd September – preorder here), of which Akbar explains:
“This is Grrrl Gang’s first release after we graduated and got day jobs that made us have to move to Jakarta, which is undeniably 180 degrees compared to Yogya [Yogyakarta – the band’s college city]. But moving to Jakarta enabled us to work with Lafa [Pratomo – producer] on Spunky! from start to finish.”
Amassing more than 13 million cumulative streams on Spotify, while also commanding an army of over 350k monthly listeners on the very same platform, these three hugely talented musicians look set to take over the indie world by storm very shortly.
