LOKAL LISTENS #3 - WHITE SHOES AND THE COUPLES COMPANY / by LOKAL LLC

There is much to say about the rise of bands like White Shoes and The Couples Company in Indonesia. A surging interest in the retro aesthetics as of late is substantiated by the country's rich history and relationship with 70's pop culture. White Shoes are currently signed by Minty Fresh Records, an independent Chicago based label, and have won praises from Rolling Stones and Pitchfork alike. The combination of retro disco beat with surf rock nuances pays homage to old school Indonesian jazz-pop music scene.
