Powerviolence band Manekin release 4 track politically charged promo [Indonesia].
MANEKIN is a Indonesian Power-violence/Hardcore Punk band from Palembang, South Sumatera formed in 2015. In 2016 the band released their debut album, “DEAD VIOLENCE SOCIETY.” In April 2017, MANEKIN completed a tour of Sumatera, Batam, and Malaysia, playing 9 shows in 10 cities over 11 days. The shows functioned as promotion for the band’s music, but also helped to grow and expand the underground punk scene of South East Asia, a scene that is very strong but rarely gets exposure outside of the region. At the end of 2017, the band released a new demo (MMXVII DEMO).
MANEKIN’s lyrics talk about capitalism, consumerism, resistance, and the fight against oppression. The band aims to “make music beyond music itself,” fusing music with politics and other underground artforms.”
