Indonesian trio Grrrl Gang build on their considerable worldwide buzz with Spunky!, their full-length debut album. Releasing on September 22 by Green Island Music in partnership with exclusive licensees Kill Rock Stars (United States), Trapped Animal Records (United Kingdom) and Big Romantic Records (Japan and Taiwan), the album is preceded by its title track and first single out today.
The song essentially describes vocalist and guitarist Angeeta Sentana’s experience during a manic episode. “I feel like I’m on top of the world, untouchable. I do things without thinking, always chasing after that feeling of instant gratification. I feel extra confident in myself—to a point of grandiose thinking—and that I could do anything” Sentana explains.
The music video for ‘Spunky!’, directed by Bathroom Girls, is part of a continuous movie, with ‘Spunky!; being the second chapter. It tells the story of an introverted girl who goes to a house party to validate herself among her peers. Despite facing challenges to her self-esteem, she manages to overcome her discomforts to survive the night. During the party, she watches Grrrl Gang perform ‘Spunky!’ and is mesmerized by the confident performance of Angee, the lead singer. The girl imagines herself as an Angee, a confident and cool person that she will never be.
