Band/artist history
Black Star formed back in 1999 as a 4 piece rock band, after several face lifts, and line up changes they returned with a bang in 2006 as a 5 piece experimental-pop band. The songs have graceful melodies and unique sounds. Their songs will simply stick in your head. They have been described by some as a cross between Radiohead and Travis. After learning their craft for years as a cover band on the local circuit, in Jakarta Black Star have recorded a 3 track Demo, which combines Black Stars dark lyrics with stadium-ready melodies to blend out a record full of beautiful strange sound. The Demo was created in modest time, and contains fan favourite and standout track Insomnia". The band is currently gigging relentlessly showcasing their songs at any given opportunity. Black Star, are all local lads from Lebak Bulus in Jakarta, and have been playing in bands from early ages, Emir (Lead singer, 21), Aloel (Guitar, 26), Yudi (Guitar, 23), Q-nos (Bass, 27), Rob (Drum, 26), and Ine (Keyboard, 23) are highly skilled, and respected musicians within the area. Once the band had formed, they set about writing and gigging with great success. Within a few months they had over 15 songs with which the band are both proud of, and believe in. They take their fan base with them to every gig, and are always on form, both on stage and off. And have gained a good reputation from every cafè, club, school party and street corner they have performed at. In July 2009, the band released their debut album, under an indie label, Fiasco Records.
