The Playlist Series – Pesawat


Malaysia is raising a great bunch of punchy indie rock bands! Pesawat is one of them, and is making noise since 2005. After a radiant performance at Good Vibes Festival in Kuala Lumpur last month, lead singer Jipie has put together a very personal “Time Machine” playlist. Here’s what it is all about.


I love how songs can touch me deep inside and give me goosebumps. It’s like I’m being abducted and transported into a movie in my mind that depicts how the songs make me feel or empathise with the singer/songwriter. In a way, a song is like a time machine that is closely tied with emotions. At times, it is reminiscent of exactly how I feel at a particular moment in my life and at other times, certain experiences or memories immediately remind me of a song. Here are some of such songs that have taken me back in time, stirred up my emotions and shaped me into being the person that I am now. Enjoy and let’s travel together.
