The White Shoes & The Couples Company, celebrated as one of the “best indie pop band to call Jakarta home” by will play alongside local band, Khottal and French band Saycet to transport the audience into a different dimension of poetic and mesmerizing soundscapes and melodies.

Formed in 2002, The White Shoes & The Couples company blends 1960’s Burt Bacharach-inspired melodies with winsome indie pop to create a truly unique sound that bring us back to the 1970’s or even to the 1930’s, with charming, distinct melodies and orchestration. Singing in both English and Indonesian, they have been named “one of the Top 25 bands on MySpace” by Rolling Stone, featured in Times Magazine and praised by Pitchfork.

The concert will also showcase two supporting acts including Franco-Lao outfit SayCet, performing for the first time in Malaysia. Warmly praised by LesInrocks and Trax, the trio plays an unforgettable blend of experimental pop and electronica, matched with bewitching video projections.

Khottal (pronunciation: ˈkä-təl ) consists of 12 people, who are like a mixed bag of pills. This 11-piece outfit skips between punk, unpolished pop, indie rock, jangly and fey melodies that will make your laughter sounds a little different to the norm
