Tentang band

The Trees and the Wild is a 3 piece alternative folk band hailing from Jakarta, Indonesia. Formed by Remedy Waloni (vocals, acoustic guitar, synth, percussions, wine glass and glockenspiel), Iga Massardi (electric guitar, acoustic guitar, backing vocals, triangle and percussion), and Andra B. Kurniawan (acoustic guitar, bass, backing vocals, glockenspiel, wine glass, and percussions). Packed with a wide range of skills, an unlimited stock of creativity juice, and a great taste in music, these gifted individuals breathes more life to the already vibrant music in Indonesia.

The Trees and The Wild appears in TIME magazine:

With sweeping post-rock chops reminiscent of Sigur Ros, song titles like “Berlin” and “Irish Girl,” and an autumnal gravitas blowing through their quieter, folkier numbers, the Trees and the Wild sound like they ought to come from a cold climate. In fact, they hail from a sweltering industrial suburb of the Indonesian capital and make a richly poignant music that vocalist Remedy Waloni calls “somber tropical.”(See the Asia’s best bands in 2008.)

Local indie label Lil’Fish Records discovered the Trees and the Wild on Myspace in 2008 and the band released its debut album Rasuk the following year, bagging a host of awards. Rolling Stone Indonesia called the Trees and the Wild one of the year’s must-see acts, while the Jakarta Post recognized an “epic quality” to their songs.

Remedy says the band draws their lyrical inspiration from “family, Indonesian life and landscape.” While their melodic influences include traditional Indonesian folk music and hymns, their cultural interests stretch beyond music. The band recently collaborated with videographer Dimas Wisnuwardono on a short documentary about a group of villagers from Tana Beru in Bulukumba, South Sulawesi, struggling to preserve and restore their antique pinisi boat. Expect that empathy and love for the rhythms of Indonesian life to suffuse their sophomore recording, due later this year.
