Penunggu from Selangor Malaysia has released a new single ‘Gurindam Terkukur’ featuring gambus player Fauziah Gambus.
“The 5:50 minutes track started out with soothing and mellow melodies, injected with some traditional Malay music vibe both instrumentally and melodically. When been asked why the band decided to pursue this new direction, Haizeel (rhythm guitarist/composer) replied that the band wanted to deliver out some fresh ”feel’ into their music and explore different types of local flavor other than the usual gamelan heavily been utilized by many other artists nowadays. The song later takes a turn with a more heavy approach as the song progresses and finishes off with melodic guitar solos.
Another interesting part of the music video is the usage of CG which helps to tell the story of the song more clearly; visually. Haizeel also added that the song is about the victims of war; the small people who suffered and lost love ones from the senseless war between big powers.”
