about

Barokah Records is participating in the first Netlabel Day ever!

[BAR011]

Knurd Hamsun adalah duo Eka Nurradhi dan Mirza Pahlevi W. dari Bandung. Mereka memainkan lo-fi post-punk dengan estetika synth punk a’la Blank Dogs, Little Girls hingga Led Er Est. Knurd Hamsun terbentuk karena Eka dan Mirza merasa memiliki banyak kesamaan dalam selera musik sampai akhirnya memutuskan untuk membuat musik bersama.
Awalnya Knurd Hamsun memainkan musik lo-fi surf pop dengan beat-beat chillhop/trap, tapi entah kenapa bisa berubah menjadi memainkan musik post-punk seperti sekarang. Knurd Hamsun sendiri ingin membuat sesuatu yang setidaknya bisa membuat mereka yang mendengarkan menangguk-anggukan kepalanya.
Untuk urusan lirik, mereka berkata bahwa lirik-lirik di EP ini terinspirasi dari serial TV favorit mereka, Game of Thrones, seperti yang terlihat pada track Baelish yang mengacu pada Lord Petyr Baelish.
Knurd Hamsun mengaku tidak berkspektasi banyak tentang pendapat pendengar terhadap musik mereka. Mereka hanya ingin membuat musik sebagai output dari apa yang mereka lihat, dengar dan rasakan kedalam musik. Lagu-lagu mereka dianggap sebagai anak-anak rohani yang setelah keluar dari orang tuanya, mereka punya sejarahnya masing-masing. Urusan suka atau tidak suka, enak atau tidak enak, itu seutuhnya urusan masing-masing pendengar.
Tapi bagi kami, musik Knurd Hamsun adalah sebuah musik yang menarik. Sejauh yang kami tahu, masih belum banyak musik seperti ini di Indonesia. Dan itulah kenapa kami tertarik untuk merilis EP pertama mereka ini.
Sudahlah, sekarang, tonton lagi koleksi serial Game of Thrones punyamu dan dengarkan debut mini album dari Knurd Hamsun ini.

Track Name: Haunt Me
it's past midnight
i found you sleeping quietly
your presence still stuck in my head
while your body stay still in your grave

i have been sitting near your tomb
will you dig your own grave that i have been dug?
i hope your ghost will bloom
and come to haunt me in my head
Track Name: Death By Piano
he lifting a piano
to the fourth floor as we speak
and then you step outside
a cable snaps

then boom!
you're dead!
in those hideous shoes
death by the piano
Track Name: Crawl Under
I won't be taken easily
I won't grow fat and happy
I'll crawl under the floorboards
I'll be a constant, nervous tapping
I'll feed your eager need for novelty

I won't be taken easily
I won't grow fat and happy
I'll be your endless source of joy
I'll be your free lunch, dinner, and breakfast
I'll be all your nights and weekends

Strip me down, cuddle up, let's sleep in
I'll be all your nights and weekends

I won't be this, I won't be this
I won't be missed
Track Name: Slauerhoff
sword
knife
axe
hammer

sword
knife
axe
hammer

but nothing
would beat
the strength of words
from your mouth
cause words
is the deadliest
weapon
from all of those
Track Name: Baelish
i said you should not believe me
but you did believe me
so here you are now
waiting for this sword chop your head down

i know you're a good man it's true
but you came to a wrong place
where justice is just a word we don't do
so here you are

believing me is something you should avoid
no one to trust here in king's landing
except yourself and no one else
lies is a word we believe

this sword is as sharp as your mouth
but in this cruel world sword is strongest than words you said
oh poor you
