MARCHE LA VOID - The origin of non-entity [2012]

Marché La Void (MLV), a band based in Jakarta, Indonesia, was started in 2003 by 3 long-time friends: Irwan, Wahyu, and Suryaputra. Hendra was the next member to join the band, followed by Gerrid and Dave. Later Hendra was replaced by Febri. Since the day the band was founded, MLV has been writing and performing their own songs. Many great artists influence the band in writing their music, which they described as down-tempo, psychedelic, and ambient. Some influences are more obvious than others, but all are influential nonetheless.

In April 2007, Marché La Void released its first EP, entitled Cacophonia. The 4 song EP was produced and distributed independently. As times goes by MLV has been rearangging music style and focussing on their instrument skill hence digging their main roots in instrumental / experimental / post-rock genre. We as a band feel the need to explore our instruments more as an individual force that driven our music to some sort of journey and emotional landscape without the use of vocal.

Genre - Post-rock | Ambient | Shoegaze
Country - Indonesia
Influences - King Crimson, Pink Floyd, Mogwai, GY!BE, Radiohead, Mono, Sigur Ros, Caspian
Label - Unsigned
