An Indonesian experimental shoegaze band which formed in Bandung, Indonesia 2004. Their sounds is comprising indie sound scape influenced by experimental shoegaze and post-rock with an ambient dominated and exclusion of delaying guitar in almost their songs, taking every single common instrument into a flowing delay harmonization.
In their way to exploring the music, they're inspired from early 90's shoegaze scene like My Bloody Valentine, Cocteau Twins, Slowdive, Ride, and their local shoegaze scenes like TheMilo which can be heard in Where's My Place to Play EP in 2007. Also influence come from many British band such as The Cure, The Smiths, U2, Ride, Radiohead, etc. Their sounds like combining two different sound character, wet hard distortion covered up by sparkling clean delaying guitar which we can hear them in many band in early 90's.

Doddy left the band after pursuing in a different way of music in 2007, he become a DJ in Future Funk and have a solo project MDNSDS and we're not dj's, so they're going with new formation without Doddy.

They filled their sounds with an expressive ambient and emotion sound in their songs. In other way they try to spill each character in gloomy rhythm but still dynamic. They try to bring the side of human life in a different perspective, mostly about natural life which has been unwell taken care of human, world tragic such war, disaster, and side minded way of human life. Even they're weak in finances to produce music but they don't want to give up. They use everything rightly as they need to produce music. start from shortage of well media record, they use a PC home in the first time they make their own music. Even they know how low quality sounds they produced, they just want to record their music without obstacle, they're try to be independent.
