The Trees and The Wild

c. 2005 | ORIGIN: BEKASI, INDONESIA

The Trees & The Wild (often stylized as TREES & WILD) is an Indonesian band, formed in Bekasi, West Java in 2005, and currently based in Jakarta, Indonesia. The band is known for its musical blend of ambient, post-rock and folk, underpinned with pop elements with distinctly Indonesian identity. The Trees & The Wild emerged in 2005 as a home-recording project by Remedy Waloni. In this period, with help from university classmates, which included high school friend Andra Kurniawan, he recorded and posted a number of tracks on Myspace. With Andra Kurniawan they later developed the initial tracks written by Remedy and the first incarnation of the band was born. Local independent label Lil'Fish Records discovered The Trees & TheWild on Myspace in 2008 and recorded those demos the following year, which became an album called Rasuk. In 2010 drummer Hertri Nur Pamungkas joined the group. Soon after, bassist Tyo Prasetya and singer Charita Utami joined the group, completing the line-up. The band started touring Indonesia in Java and Sulawesi around 2009-2011. And in between, they toured the neighboring countries such as Malaysia and Singapore, including five performances at The Esplanade’s annual Mosaic Music Festival in 2011 and Baybeats Festival in 2012. In 2011, TIME Magazine called the Jakarta-based the must see Asian band of 2011. In 2012 the band performed at the Urbanscapes Festival in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Reeperbahn Festival in Hamburg, Germany and the Monsters of Pop Festival in Tampere, Finland along with shows in Helsinki and Tallinn, Estonia.[6] During this European tour the band released a limited EP entitled Tuah/Sebak. At the end of 2012, the band was featured on Vincent Moon's La Blogotheque Take Away Shows, it was filmed during his South-East Asian trip. 2014 saw the band opening for Deerhoof in Singapore.
