VIDEO: Dirgahayu’s ‘Dengan Ingatan Tulus Ikhlas + Commemorate!’


If you haven’t heard of Dirgahayu, then you should really do something about it. The math rock four-piece recently toured relentlessly around the region (playing as far as Japan) and was even lauded by the press down south (specifically our brothers at JUICE Singapore). In addition to consistently performing great shows, the band has also released their beautifully made limited edition debut album Commemorate!, which was crafted from the same fabric that of the army wear worn by Japanese soldiers, in keeping with the theme of the album. Yesterday evening, the band premiered the second video off the record for two of their tracks, ‘Dengan Ingatan Tulus Ikhlas’ and title track ‘Commemorate!’. Filmed and edited by Khairul Johari, the video is a composite of footage shot during their two-week tour of Japan. Again, as anything presented by the band, it’s an excellent piece of videography. We see tiny segments of Japanese life as scored by the languid  ‘Dengan Ingatan Tulus Ikhlas’ and it is then followed by scenes from the band performing at various venues for ‘Commemorate!’.
