Biography

The Triangle are an indie rock band hailing from Bandung, Indonesia. Originally conceived of as a three piece acoustic project consisting of Riko Prayitno (Mocca), Fikri Hadiansyah (Vincent Vega), and Cil Satriawan, the band soon realized the scope of their ambition required wider intrumentation and expanded the band to include drums, trumpet, trombone, and (sometimes) piano. Though based firmly in guitar-based pop/rock music, their songs tend to meander into stranger territories, owing to the range of influences the band draws upon. Elements of 80s twee and jangle pop, 90s alternative, indie rock, and post-rock are quite apparent in their music, but masked in a sound and mood wholly their own.

Brandishing their combination of overdriven and reverb-laden guitar tones, horns, plodding drum patterns, and female backing vocals, the band finds itself occupying a rather unique niche in their local scene. Combined with the varying but almost always depressing lyrical content, the band has quickly garnered attention among the thoroughly depressed young people of Bandung.

The Triangle formed in 2010 through a chance encounter between Riko Prayitno, guitarist of Mocca, and Cil Satriawan during an open mic session at Riko’s cafe. After inviting Fikri Hadiansyah of Vincent Vega to join as guitarist, the group convened to write songs. The end product being beyond the group’s initial expectations, they decided to get serious and release material.
