About lightcraft

lightcraft take pride in their trademark anthemic, melancholic sound, crafting atmospheric songs out of sadness and joy. The band got together in 2004 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. They released an EP in 2006, "The Modern Seasons", while their debut album, "Losing Northern Lights", was unveiled in 2008. Their sophomore album, “Colours Of Joy”, was officially launched in January 2014. Recorded in Jakarta, Indonesia and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, the album is distributed in Indonesia by local record label Demajors. "Colours Of Joy" is also digitally distributed online across the globe via iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, Deezer, Google Play, Bandcamp, and many others. In March 2015, lightcraft released a mini-compilation cassette with Nanaba Records titled “Love Songs & Lullabies”. The band, together with New Jersey indie-rock quartet Wyland, released a split mini CD titled "Kindred Spirits" in August 2016 under Misashi Records.

lightcraft – who are now currently based in Jakarta, Indonesia – have plenty of experience when it comes to playing live, performing on stages and festivals in Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Singapore, the USA, the UK, Canada, and India. In 2014, they were invited to play Baybeats Music Festival 2014 in Singapore, as well as performing at Java Soundsfair 2014 in Jakarta. In January 2015, the band played in India for the first time at Saarang 2015 festival at IIT Madras in Chennai. In May 2015, lightcraft made their debut live performance in Canada at Canadian Music Week 2015 in Toronto, and not long after, they played four shows – including at the main Fountain Stage – at Music Matters Live 2015 in Singapore. In August 2015, they embarked on a mini-tour of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, while in October 2015, lightcraft performed in Seoul, South Korea for the first time ever at the biggest music showcase festival in the country that is Zandari Festa 2015, which happened from October 2-4, 2015. They were also invited to showcase at Karel Music Expo 2015 in Cagliari, Italy, but the band had to pull out due to a clash of schedule with Zandari Festa 2015 as they had already confirmed their appearance at the South Korean-based festival first. The band embarked on a North American tour from late April to early May, which encompassed two dates in New York and Jersey City in the USA and two showcases at Canadian Music Week (CMW) 2016 in Toronto, Canada, which happened in May 2016. Their scheduled appearance at the festival was their second in consecutive years. Prior to their North American adventure, lightcraft returned to Singapore in March 2016 to play Rocking The Region, which was held at Esplanade - Theatres On The Bay. lightcraft made their live debut at a music festival in the UK when they played Liverpool Sound City 2016 in Liverpool, England, which ran from May 28-29, 2016, where they also performed at Sound City + - the festival's music conference. After an appearance at international music festival We The Fest 2016 in August 2016 in Jakarta, Indonesia, the band flew to Taichung City, Taiwan in September 2016 for Taichung International Cuisine Festival. In early November 2016, lightcraft hopped onboard Nanaba Records' The Landscape Park Life Tour in Java, visiting cities including Malang, Surabaya, Semarang and Yogyakarta. They then returned to Toronto, Canada in November 2016 for Indie Week Canada 2016, where they played three showcases, along with a gig in Hamilton outside of the festival. Up next for lightcraft is an appearance at DongTaiDu Festival 2017 in Malaysia, with a few shows in Kuala Lumpur before that, all happening in January 2017.

lightcraft are ambassadors for a non-profit organisation called Bersih Nyok!, which aims to realise a cleaner Jakarta and a better future for the capital city of Indonesia. lightcraft are also one of the music ambassadors for social media platform migme.

At the moment, the band are recording new material for their third album, which they hope could project a different and more mature side of lightcraft compared to their previous releases. It is scheduled to be released in 2017. An EP containing five brand-new songs titled "Another Life" will preside the release of the band's third album, which is set to be unveiled in November 2016.

Keep dreaming of the bees and the butterflies.
