Biography

Born in April 8th, 2007, strangers composed their own material with the flow of British groove from the 90’s.
Inspired from the world class bands such as the Beatles, Radiohead, the Cure, and Coldplay they sang their way through Indonesian music scene.

One lead singer, one lead guitarist, one bass player, and one drummer.
As simple as that.

Having the passion of playing the music live, they generate the energy on their first album “Everything Goes Automatic” released in Indonesia by their own hand in November 7th, 2008.

“I’m a creep, I’m a weirdo. What the hell am I doing here? I don’t belong here”.

The song “Creep” by Radiohead.

That would be the perfect way to describe their status in Indonesia. The simplicity concept that they brought in their music and way of life considered to be a freaky and feared idealism.

Lyrics

He is Me (strangers)

Written By: Muhammad Dwi Maulana

there is a man who wants to change the world
digging all the secrets, turn the pages
all he does is trying, no retiring
he is me.
there is a boy who keeping all the toys
playing all the games he can
sometimes he shared them with his friends
no tense
he is me.

let me show you a picture of myself
a little piece about myself
so I’m no longer a stranger to you
...
let me show you a picture of myself
a little piece about myself
so I’m no longer a stranger to you

come take a look deeper
you’ll find nothing to fear
we’re all strangers at first
a stranger,
strangers..

there is an old man walking by the park
smiling all the time although he knows
that he’s about to die
leaving all behind
he is me.
he is me. he is me.

Heavenly

Written By: Muhammad Dwi Maulana

is this for real?
you came to me like a dream
blow away my nightmares
heavenly..
this is how I feel

I love everything about you
everything you do
and if you don’t love me today
I still heavenly in love with you
anyway..

it only takes
one of your smiles to cure me
throw away my nightmares
heavenly..
this is how I feel

I love everything about you
everything you do
and if you don’t love me today
and if you don’t love me today
I still heavenly in love with you
anyway..

heavenly..
heavenly..
heavenly I love you

Headline

Written By: Muhammad Dwi Maulana

resting my eyes pretend like I don’t care
everything works systematic
sitting on your electric chair
loosing my hair
tell me is it fair?
everything goes automatic
everything smells chaotic

I’m walking to the headline
built for all the big time coming
I wasn’t born not to shine
I’m making through
I’m running to the headline

upgraded justice sounds absurd
hoping it works no chance of failure
dollar prevails
making it works

“..who am I anyway..?”
“..who am I anyway..?”

and everything goes unromantic..

I’m walking to the headline
built for all the big time coming
I wasn’t born not to shine
I’m making through
I’m running to the headline

My Beautiful

Written By: Muhammad Dwi Maulana

you don’t deserve to die peacefully
you have to suffer
all the pain you’ve given me
changing me into a monster
now everybody hates me
I hate you
my beautiful..

My beautiful.. my beautiful..
My beautiful.. my beautiful..
My beautiful.. my beautiful..
My beautiful.. my beautiful..

all the pain you’ve given me
changing me into a monster
I don’t want your sympathy
I hate you
my beautiful..

My beautiful.. my beautiful..
My beautiful.. my beautiful..
My beautiful.. my beautiful..
My beautiful.. my beautiful..

all the pain you’ve given me
I love you
my beautiful..

Tangisan Ibu Pertiwi

Written By: Muhammad Dwi Maulana

Pahlawan lahir silih berganti
terbunuh kebohongan
Kita berlomba melawan kebodohan

Raih sahabatmu
peluk dan lindungi yang kau cinta
kita adalah satu
hadapi semua bersama
Raih sahabatmu
peluk dan lindungi yang kau cinta
kita terlahir dari
satu bendera yang sama

Pahlawan gugur silih berganti
terbunuh kesombongan
Kita berlomba melawan kebodohan

Raih sahabatmu
peluk dan lindungi yang kau cinta
kita adalah satu
hadapi semua bersama
Raih sahabatmu
peluk dan lindungi yang kau cinta
kita terlahir dari
satu bendera yang sama

Selamatkan kita..!!
Janganlah biarkan kepunahan kita
menjadi nyata..

Raih sahabatmu
peluk dan lindungi yang kau cinta
Kita hadapi semua bersama
Kita terlahir dari bendera yang sama..
