Iqbal M is a five-piece rock band that was formed in 2010, led by lead singer and band namesake Iqbal Othman who – based on his live performances – is an eccentric and magnetic character. That slight sense of offbeat sensibility carries through into the band’s brand of indie rock too, or as they have dubbed it, pasca-rock. The result is often multi-layered, fusing together traditional instruments and electronic elements. Take for instance ‘Kota Merajuk’, a song with a conflicting identity of neurotic playing of the guitar complementing its minimal jaunty dance beats.
