UPRISING has released one new track and one EP from their artists. The EP album is from STVDIO called "Memo". The new track came from CVX with "Apathy".
Consisting of DJ/Producers Heston Prasetyo and Abra Sumendap - STVDIO’s 3 track EP suggests that although the duo are new to the Indonesian music scene, they’ve been grafting at their art for a long time. Displaying a commanding vocal performance from their vocalist collaborators Bimo Ganzar, Yaya and Saifa - STVDIO achieve to strike a lovely balance of production style that looks to the future while the melodic composition of their songs have an undercurrent of nostalgia in a way that we haven’t quite been able to put our finger on.
Setting the tone of the EP with reverberated Idiophones painting a dreamy backdrop to Bimo Ganzar’s baritone voice on the first track "If Only". The singer’s low register croons quickly turn into light falsettos as the song breaks into waves of filtered supersaws. Yaya then adds to the intrigue with her performance on the second track "Lost & Found". With her powerful voice she is right at home on the pop ballad that turns into a future bass anthem. The last track featuring Saifa brings it all home with its guitar driven house groove.
Returning to the fray with a Nostalgic flare with his latest single "Apathy", CVX croons about the beauty of universal love. The gift of love is unrivaled and is something everyone is worthy of. No matter what we may or may not possess, no matter who we are and what we bring along on our journey - love should always be shared.
The song is inspired by the way social media divides us in times of conflict and makes us quick to see our differences rather than what we share with one another. Perhaps in this day and age a little apathy is just what we need for love and understanding.
