Collapse is a project by Bandung-based guitarist, Andika Surya, best known for his time in hardcore outfit ALICE, that sees him venture into musical ideas and visual aesthetics that chart way off ALICE’s harsher repertoire. The multi-instrumentalist has released a music video for the project’s debut single, “Given”, which is part of his 10-minute exploratory EP, Grief.
The song wears its modern-day shoegaze revival influences on its sleeve with its warm, fuzzy and melodic tones that are complemented by the music video—directed by Gibran Panjisakhi and Andika himself—with its tender and pastel-hued shots that are both playful and spatially aware.
For more of Collapse’s lush guitar driven songs, you can purchase the EP through Royal Yawns. Grief is also available digitally on Spotify, iTunes, Amazon Music and Google Play. For further updates, you can follow him on Facebook.
