June 26th, 2020 (New York, NY): Established singer-songwriter Pamungkas has released his new album, Solipsism. This is Pamungkas’s third solo album and first album release of 2020. With this album, Pamungkas hopes to introduce himself to the US market and that all of his listeners will bring new life to the songs by putting their own meaning behind each track.
Solipsism is an exploration of the self. Written from personal experience, the album brings to the forefront the thoughts that many chose to hide and keep to themselves. Pamungkas strived to create an album that is very personal but still contains ideas that his listeners can still identify with. Each song was created solely in his apartment, due to COVID-19, Solipsism is an album that describes the life and the world from a place of isolation. There are a total of eleven tracks on the album with three focus tracks: “Live Forever,” “Deeper,” and “I Don’t Wanna Be Alone.”
Pamungkas (pronounced: pah-mung-kah-s ) is an Indonesian singer-songwriter and music producer. A self-taught multi-instrumentalist, he began his musical journey by learning the drums at the young age of eight and then branching out to guitar and piano. When he was 10 years old, he started accompanying his father, the owner of artist management company Oxygen Entertainment, on the road which only grew his passion for music and live performances. Pamungkas personally crafts every aspect of his music: writing, producing, mixing & mastering, designing album artwork for each song. After having his debut album was reviewed by Kunto Aji, a top artist in Indonesia, several media outlets and music tastemakers began to name Pamungkas as an artist on the rise in 2018. Although he has been approached by many managers and labels, instead he started his own label, Maspam Records, and decided to create a path that was entirely his own. From a sold-out solo tour to headlining festivals such as We The Fest and Java Jazz 2020, he has performed on international and national stages for thousands of viewers. With now, over 1.9 million monthly listeners on Spotify and over 76 million combined views on YouTube, Pamungkas’s music has been heard all throughout Asia.
