WHITE SHOES & THE COUPLES COMPANY “Senja Menggila”


3691546429_9901bd8e56“Senja Menggila” adalah debut single dari album terbaru White Shoes & The Couples Company yang akan dirilis di penghujung tahun 2009 oleh Aksara Records. Single ini dirilis secara gratis dalam 2 format. Format CD dibagikan bersamaan dengan sebuah artbook dengan judul sama yang berisi karya seni visual dari beberapa seniman muda Jakarta dan Yogyakarta dalam jumlah yang terbatas yaitu sebanyak 100 kopi. Format digital yang dirilis oleh Yes No Wave Music ini ditemani beberapa single lain yang pernah dirilis dalam album-album kompilasi di tahun 2006, 2007 dan 2008. Lagu Senja Menggila ini mengingatkan kita pada scene beatnik yang tampak modis dalam balutan irama jazz, funk, calypso dan komposisi big band. Di beberapa bagian yaitu pada gesekan string dan bebunyian tiup bisa ditemukan gaya oriental yang membekas semenjak Aksi Kucing. Ini adalah perluasan wawasan dan wilayah dalam koridor retro. Musik popouler seperti ini sudah selayaknya bergaung dalam keheningan sebuah perpustakaan daerah yang tentunya sudah lazim disusupi oleh sebuah piranti mp3 player dari negeri cina. (Wok The Rock)

Track List:
01. Senja Menggila
02. Zamrud Khatulistiwa
03. Bersandar
04. Nothing To Fear

A small band that influenced by Indonesian movies soundtrack from the 70’s and inspired by acoustic spirit of 1930’s classic jazz musicians. Updated with classic strings arrangements, retro disco beat, easy listening acoustic ballads, and some tunes from vintage keyboard toys that made in 1970’s.

In August 2002, in an art institute at Cikini, central Jakarta, two lover from the fine art faculty Rio & Sari decided to form a band together with their fellow in the faculty named Saleh. This was the first formation of White Shoes & The Couples Company, which features Sari in vocal & violin, Rio on rhythm guitar and Saleh on melody guitar. The three of them made their first debut in this formation in a college event. However, the trio formation diverged from their original plan where actually Sari and Rio had keenly asked a married couple from the music faculty to join the band the couples was Ricky Surya Virgana & Mela Virgana. Yet the couple was hard to meet since they were busy lecturing and covering for orchestras. Several months later, the couple join White Shoes & The Couples Company with Ricky on Bass and cello and Mela on viola, keyboards and piano. (YES NO WAVE MUSIC)
