Asian Music Recommendation: Assajan Jakgawan

Come back for more Must See Foreign Films and Asian Music Blog Recommendation. 

Assajan Jakgawan is a Thai band. They debuted in 2006 with their mini album titled 'Assajan Jakgawan'.

Their very first hit, Reverse, is a slow one. It's a laid back sad song. 

However, their range is wider and they are actually more prolific. If you watch their live performances, you will get a glimpse of just how unpredictable they could be. They go from slow to eclectic to heavy to experimental and then back again, each time sounding more real. 

They began in high school, just a bunch of friends who enjoy music. They started writing their own material early. Talk about organic. 

However, they got busier and busier that they never had the chance to finish any of the songs they started writing. 

By 2005, a new bassist came in and that inspired them to finish their songs. A year later, they came out with their first album. 

They said they are not musicians, they just all happen to like music. They insist they don't have the discipline to be musicians. 

Check out their album. They don't sing in English though. =)
