Malaysia-based melodic punk rock band TIM has just a brand new catchy-AF track entitled ‘Kata Hati’. Vocalist and sole band member Akmal was kind enough to let us know that the song is off his upcoming full length to be released, hopefully, by year’s end. “The song KATA HATI is based on hopes and fears that I’ve faced during these tough times in the Pandemic. The lyrics are about self-improvement, reaching our spiritual side by being positive and enlightened.”
When we asked about the band itself since it is currently working as a one-man band in the studio, he replied, “Well I have session dudes fill in whenever we play live. The band has gone through a few lineup changes due to creative differences recently but that hasn’t stopped me from writing music or the band, so I’ll keep it going”.
As for future plans, “We were scheduled for a small Japan tour in August last year, but COVID hit so that was postponed until further notice. I’ll keep working on the new album which carries some elements from our 2018 EP.”
