Nope, this is not Kevin Parker new song. This one came from Iyam. A Bandung-based newcomers who just dropped his new EP “World of Magic”. Containing 4 psychedelic-pop songs, the video got every preview of each songs in it. The first time I listened to the album, I didn’t realize it to be locally made music.
The thing I love most about this album is the sound production that feels top notch where there is no element that is much more dominant than other elements. It feels so comfortable to be heard. Moreover, the artwork representing enough about the songs that are in it. The faint and dreamy synthesizers sounds are key to a strong space atmosphere. I can feel myself floating into space as I close my eyes and let the song take control.

Knowing Iyam from a Line Square, i am very excited in knowing that someone i knew from the internet has made such beautiful music and i am personally very honored to be asked to write this in his release (Though i’m not sure if im worthy enough to present a fine craft like Iyam’s music). With lyrics that are written personally, since he was 17, and music that are worked by himself, Iyam himself must be the magician in his “World of Magic”. Iyam presents a 4 track EP filled with psychedelic wonders, portraying different varieties of nuances and moods. Both happy and sad at the same moment, Iyam has gone through the up and downs of life in his process of making World Of Magic EP.
Playing his music, learning about recording, and digital instruments, all by himself. Iyam has put his dedication to this EP. But now, it is all paying off. He has made progress, having his EP mastered by Brian Lucey, who did the mastering for known acts like The Black Keys, Arctic Monkeys, and Liam Gallagher, mentioned here and there in various medias, Iyam is surely making a name for himself with his magnificient music. For those who now owns this release, i’d like to welcome you to Iyam’s “World of Magic”. Do enjoy a piece of Iyam’s soul, and behold the wonders he has made for all of you. Cheers.
