Who are the band members of Jupiter Waves?

Hi, I’m Adam, I play the guitars. El plays the keyboard and the guitars, Azmin is the bassist of the band, and we have Peyjal on the drums.

When and how did Jupiter Waves start?

Jupiter Waves was formed in the middle of November in 2016. Azmin is my old classmate from school, and we both started the band because we wanted to do something with our lives, and then afterwards we decided to recruit more members; we got Peyjal who is a friend of Azmin, and El, who is a friend of Peyjal, so we’re all connected.

What genre would you classify your music as?

Space rock.

You can listen to their new song, ‘Black Monday’ by downloading the Progresif Radio App on Google Play and the App Store.

Which artist to do you think you sound like?

We do take a lot of our sound from a digital/ experimental/ alternative rock band from the US called Angels and Airwaves. At the same time, we also want to try out our own sounds so that it would help with standing out. 

Who have been the major influences on your sound?

My old time favourite artist would be Tom Delonge from Blink 182. He has been a major influence in my life, especially writing music.

Do you have a pre-gig ritual?

Ice lemon tea and Kit Kat before any jamming session. Always works well.

What are your upcoming projects or future plans for the band?

Ever since we started in 2016, our intention has been to make our own music. And just recently, we have completed our full feature album with 11 tracks, which we hope to distribute in mid-January. We’re really excited to launch it, and we have been receiving early positive feedback.

What does the word progressive mean to you?

It means progression in anything you do with life, be it with music, films or books. For us, we are progressing in making music in our early 30’s.
