LaMunai Records, presenting a new single called PAJEROMON from a psychedelic rock band hailing from the plastic paradise island of Bali, ROLLFAST.
Coming back out and having a new single in 2020, Rollfast, isn’t a foreign name to the local music industry, having released 1 album in 2015, 1 single in 2016 and a 7” split single with another Indo band called Sigmun (2017). Besides releases, the band has been out touring several times around Indonesia and Japan in 2015 for Tokyo Psych Fest. by GuruGuru Brain Records.
On their new single the band has further opened their bag of influences to now include an eclectic mix of Rock, Electronic / Noise, and Free Jazz inspired by traditional songs and Gamelan. “PAJEROMON” will appear on their full length to be released later this year. The track addresses social life around Bali, with all the absurd issues from dirty government elites who love to throw parties fueled by amphetamine.
“PAJEROMON” is a fictional character / pseudonym, references to the anime “Digital Monster”. The name itself is a result of combining between “Pajero” which is a kind of SUV Car from a Japanese brand, representing a masculine/cocky figure, “Jero” is a title that Balinese use for people who have a moral responsibility to serve in between Sekala and Niskala (Real life; supernatural time and spaces), and the word “Romon” means Dirty / Bad habit in Balinese.
