Bersambung by Harlan Boer | Music Review & Song Recommendation by Indie Accent by Indie Accent

BERSAMBUNG
by HARLAN BOER


"It’s a very raw and rare quality that he exhibits so naturally"


ALBUM
RELEASED ON 2020

Harlan Boer has a calmness about him that makes it feel like the lyrics and chords are pouring out of him like a stream of consciousness rather than a carefully crafted song. It’s a very raw and rare quality that he exhibits so naturally.

The Jakarta based indie folk / indie-pop / anti-folk singer-songwriter, released an album with makeshift equipment. He recorded the songs on a mobile phone, singing in loneliness in this pandemic era. The lo-fi album is entitled "Bersambung".

My favorite kind of folk music are the songs that rely on a simple, acoustic guitar, performed by an artist who knows that’s all they really need to make a heartfelt tune. “Bersambung” is one of those albums. Sometimes the lyrics are what draw you to the song, but for this track, it was the lyrics that kept me listening.

“Bersambung” is released in digital download format by the-storefront.club and cassette format by Sekuntum Records.
