Hailing from Kuantan and Parit Buntar but based in Petaling Jaya, papastathopulous is 5 friends who have known each other since secondary school. Sharing a passion forcreating their own sound, the band comprises of Ekmal (drums) and Arel (bass guitar) on the rhythm section, electric guitars helmed by Adam and Sairul, and Putat performing vocals. The boys share a common ethos of writing and composing music; if it’s got a good hook, then it’s a keeper. Established in late 2017, papastathopulous is an alternative-indie rock outfit, who take pride in creating music laden with catchy guitar riffs and melancholic melodies, while backed up by upbeat basslines and driving drums.
In the middle of December 2018, the band set off to record their 4-track EP at IseekMusic Studio, under the care of seasoned audio engineer, Mokhtarizal. The four tracks in the EP, touches on the themes of early adulthood: vice, love, heartbreak, and the struggle of finding one’s path. Their self-titled EP is anticipated to be released later in April 2019.
