Miftah Bravenda‘s electronic music project started out humbly enough – in the confines of his bedroom. His efforts have now been translated into Penurious, a haunting five-track EP.
Penurious in itself is only about 12 minutes long; but within its compact package, Miftah Bravenda manages to deliver a simple yet compelling sound. While he counts the Postal Service as a major influence, he found himself being inspired by the sounds of post-rock and shoegaze bands (MONO, The Trees and the Wild, etc) while crafting the songs on his debut EP.
There’s an all-encompassing sense of despair throughout the album’s entirety that provides another dimension to the seemingly untroubled titles of tracks such as ‘Bliss’. However, beneath all that doom and gloom, it’s easy to see how much potential this young, rookie producer from Indonesia has – even if its coming from a pretty dark place.
