Gizpel is not your usual electro pop outfit. Their genuine love of Radio Dept, Beach Fossils and Indonesian electro pop senior Goodnight Electric has made out something truly gloomy, dreamy yet somewhat comforting. The member's different background, including an 8-bit scene alumni has also contributed a role part in creating a significant soundscape which they have captured on a five-track EP called Short Distance, which out on mid 2015.
Short Distance was achieving what others could not even think of, an intuitive mixture of intertwining guitar melodies, timid dreamy vocals, layers of synth and 8-bit drums. On "Juvenile", they showed a balance between vocal melodies and guitar hooks on a seductive dance tunes while "Loner Train" pumps in with strong guitars, glitchy effects and outro that takes us in a last train to catch after a boring night away. It's hard to label Gizpel as one or two thing, but pretty sure that Short Distance has emulated the enigmatic ambience that comforts us in that corner of our bedroom.
Now consists of Fadillah Ananto, Raka Prayuga, Joshua Damanik and Alit Wedhantara, they are currently writing for something new to be released in near future.
