Empat Lima – Satu BOOM! EP
Empat Lima (Indonesian for the number ’45’) is an all-girl, three-piece garage rock band from Melbourne inspired by 1960s South East Asian rock and pop acts, such as one of their favourites, Dara Puspita.
To promote their 1st EP release Satu BOOM!, the band’s drummer, Carla Ori, directed and edited a video clip herself for the single, Night Rider. DIY (do it yourself) at its finest.
Night Rider – EMPAT LIMA
What’s more, these legendettes have created an online conduit through which female Australian and Asian musicians can connect and collaborate: WANITA (the Women’s Art Network Indonesia to Australia).
Catch them at Camp Casual on February 27 – March 1 for a mere $95 in Gippsland, Melbourne. Other bands attending include The Burnt Sausages, Mangelwurzel, Strict Face, Mesa Cosa and The Ocean Party.
