Biography

Pugar Restu Julian/Uga (Singer/Songwriter) invented thedyingsirens (written in small fonts with no space) in 2002 in Jakarta. He recorded almost 20 songs only in 3 months in 2002 with his PC and other instruments that he borrowed from some friends. The music is between acoustic and electronic, but the electronic factor is because he recorded in his boredom bedroom with his PC and not in the real recording studio.

He ‘s not sure about the genre, some called it alternative, some called it post rock, some called it lo-fi, others called it 90’s revival. But if he has to say the genre, then he prefer to make another genre called “alternaive”.

Why?

Why Not? ?

At that time, thedyingsirens was barely doing a performance in public. thedyingsirens’s 1st appearance was in “Renungan AIDS” Bulungan in October, 2003 replacing Silent Sun who cannot performed. Only with (Aroel’s) guitar, Uga sang “Don’t Need To Be” dan “A Girl Like You” (Pete Yorn-one of his favourite musicians). He also sold 30 “thedyingsirens DIY” CDs on the spot. After that he didn’t make anymore because he found it too tiring to make it all by himself.

thedyingsirens almost became ‘the forgotten’ project because Uga was too busy becoming a ‘bandwhore’. But in 2006 thedyingsirens has become his priority project again.
After Contributing in OST “Thank You and Goodnight Mother” , Compilation “Paviliun Doremi”, thedyingsirens released EP “Kapalku Telah Pergi” and then full album “Sketches of a Humming”.
