ROLLFAST: The Young Combo with the Classic Rock Sound

ROLLFAST: The Young Combo with the Classic Rock Sound

Bali has been pretty big on rock bands lately, and we're super excited to present this week's artist of the week; five young guys, a combo that can easily pose for a poster to represent today's new generation of the island's indie musicians. Meet Rollfast!!!


Rollfast equals Agha on vocals, Gungwah on guitar, Aan on bass, Bayu on guitar and Maurits on drums, and together they really know how to rock the stage!


Formed in 2011, Rollfast added an awesome addition to Bali's list of rock bands. And these ones really chose to go all the way, creating and presenting psychedelic rock sounds with a hint of blues and jazz whenever they see fit.


Watching them live is definitely fun, as they obviously look young yet their sound effect experiments, improvisations and Agha's vocal character does bring us a blend of sound that reminds us of the classic rock era decades ago as they blend and mix different kind of sounds and styles, going back and forth between decades, reminding us of that certain feel we catch when listening to our favorite classic rock tunes. And that feel we get right there, is prove that they did a great job adapting some of their main influences such as Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd and a bunch of other rock legends into their own final style. A style that they really pull off!


While busy recording their debut album, Rollfast found themselves a big break where they got the chance to go on their very first international tour to Japan to perform on a music festival presented by GURUGURU BRAIN and TOKYO PSYCH FEST! An awesome start to introduce their new singles it was indeed.


Exciting as it is, Rollfast agreed to pay us a visit at the studio and share their stories from how it all started up to their very recent ones they experienced during their first tour outside the country. Check out all the fun and tales on the exclusive interview and live session on the radio at Sunday, October 5, 2014 at 4 PM Bali time! And don't miss the singles played every day for a full week at 7 am, 12 am, 7 pm and midnight!


Rock on, Rollfast!!!

Rupture.- Stevans

Switzerland.  A small European country mostly famous through flattering, but outdated clichés:   Its fabulous lakes, its mountains and forest landscape, its banks and chocolate, its law-abiding citizen and clean cities.

PitchBlackGold

It is a very rare breed of artist we have this week. Well, first of all, hip-hop artists are not exactly the kind of artists you meet a lot in Bali. And rare also are rappers like Kamau aka PitchBlack Gold: He is a multi-talented artist, a poet, a dancer, an activist, a humble and charismatic man, who knows how to bring the crowd to dance ...
