Bandung-based noise rock/post-punk quartet, Bananach, has released a new single “Sick Mind” as an opener for their debut mini-album, “Panoptic Litter” which will be released by Disaster Records.
“Stuck in the gloomy atmosphere of facing the Covid-19 pandemic that was just spreading in Indonesia at that time, Bananach decided to live under the same roof for quarantine. The opportunity had become a moment that stimulated their huff of the chaotic world. As if connected to each other, all the piled-up anxieties that they felt were connected and had transformed into a louder voice, both musically and lyrically.
In the fuzz-wrapped single that comes with this music video, they honestly voice the roar of anxiety about the banal potential that everyone has, and there will always be a group of people who consider it as a deviation. There will always be individuals or groups who feel they have moral superiority and a holier-than-thou mentality. “Sick Mind” is a manifestation of anger for people who cannot see others expressing themselves.
Growing up and growing in tandem with the hardcore/punk scene without playing any orthodox grips, Bananach recasts the best things that resonate in the scene in terms of music and also delivers it louder as an outcast.
The music video for the track “Sick Mind” was produced by Bananach himself with director and editor Mufti Mujtahid.”
