Local Vocal (No. 18): Stars and Rabbit
Itâ€™s one thing to be so arrogant that you pretentiouslyÂ question the authenticity of pop music because itâ€™s being serviced by a major record label but to not understand that itâ€™s a form of performance art (real or not). Itâ€™s another thing to not respect it the way you respect music coming from an indie label. Why? Inauthentic is the new authentic.
Stars and Rabbit engages a do-it-yourself approach to writing and recording. Their music is a melding of pop and folk influences with raw simplicity of composition, arrangement, and performance.Â They formed in early 2011. The group consists of singer-songwriter Elda Suryani and musician Adi Wibowo.
Their single â€œWorth Itâ€ is their ladder into center of a stage. There are uniqueness in Eldaâ€™s voice and Adi could package it with deep music. Why should you ask? Listen them.
