Jalang (formerly L i) play fast-paced and danceable D-beat punk, propelling the band's ferocious vocals into the face of the listener. Vocalist Alda's lyrics are delivered in Bahasa Indonesia and English, engaging with both her own and collective narratives that explore politics, religion, feminism and queer rights in South East Asia, and the diaspora in so-called Australia. Timmy (Extinct Exist, Pisschrist, Schifosi) on guitar and Tessa (Ubik, Masses) on bass were joined by Kyle (Sheer Mag) on drums in 2021.
'Jalang' in Bahasa Indonesia is one of those 'odd' words: when describing the masculine it means wild, feral, undomesticated; while for feminine figures it translates as promiscuous, slutty or evil - something the band aims to reclaim as a mark of feminine pride. Jalang invokes the band members' diasporic and queer narratives through hardcore punk, mixing ideas and personal experiences that often inter-connect but also continue to conflict with the world around us.
