Contributor Riefan gifts us with a playlist of his favourite, nostalgic melodic punk songs. Enjoy!
Emo is often associated with harsh (yet still melodic) punk rock-influenced guitar riffs. Yet a lot of emo bands make use of slower tempo and softer sounds to convey the emotional element of their songs (which is the main essence of the emo culture itself). Here’s a mixtape of the best emo ballads of all time.
After 7 months since their latest EP (Salute To 90’s) was released, finally, Indonesia’s most influential pop punk unit Pee Wee Gaskins has released their new single titled “Lonely Boys, Lonely Girls” on February 15.
Last Saturday, our team got a chance to attend EMO NIGHT JKT: Love is for Losers, at Miss Qi, Melawai. The event is a monthly event held by Crowdsurfers.id focusing on pop-punk and emo songs played by DJs and performing guests. With regular performers such as Janitra Satriani and Dion Mashiro, and other performers such as Silver/Gold and The Boris Suit, Emo Night JKT succeeded in luring “emo citizens” of Jakarta to gather in this one night event, and sing along to emo anthems together.
