Tokyolite / Bio

Tokyolite are a funk pop duo based in Bogor, Indonesia. Their eclectic sound has been described as everything from rock, pop, to funk or anything you might add.

Formed in June 2009 by high school friends Devinza Kendranata (vocal, guitar), Alexander Bramono (bass, synth), Stevan Arianto (vocal, guitar, keyboards), Guruh Haryo (drums), and additional keyboardist Ghilman, they released their debut single Move It in July 2009 debuting at Harusame 2nd Compilation. In May 2011 Devin left the group and was followed by forthcoming singles release Hello, and Yes! Dance!.

The band went on to be nominated for 101.4 Trax FM JKT, LA Terusik Traxkustik Battle #2 of 2012 alongside Young de Brock, and subsequently self-released their very home made debut EP Hello on February 15th, 2013. This was accompanied by the release of their first MV Never Want as well directed by young talented cinematographer Anggit Bestari.

Another major success, Never Want MV was nominated and resulting in a Japanese Music Program called Asia Versus for 17th episode runner up contestant from Indonesia. Their international debut created a distinct and positive performance, surprisingly deservedly praised for their strictly live grooves based music at their very current age by GACKT one of the juries. That episode was aired on August 9th, 2013 on Fuji TV Channel around Tokyo. They are back in Dec 2013 with new single Consolation Prize, receiving extensive appraisal and debuting at Asia Versus Grand Prix episode in Japan. The second single Harus will be released next year, followed by their upcoming album, Avenue
