GARASI, if we hear the name maybe the girl would have remember Fedi Nuril, and the guy is clearly, yes! Ayu Ratna Pratiwi.
Ayu was born in magelang, central java, March 6, 1985. She is an ex vocalist in Garasi Band, after coming out in Garasi (2009), ayu decided to make a solo career in Japan as a form of her first international career. To release her solo mini-album she need time for one year, her mini album titled “Grateful Passport” released on April 21, 2010 in Japan with indie label Bug Music Inc.
And a new adventure begins, after while appeared in live events at japan, Sohichi offering ayu to form a band, and she so welcomed the offer, and than in October 15, 2010 in Tokyo, Japan, formed “THE_AIU” who consist Aiu (vocals), Sohichi (guitar), and Jesse (Noise & Treatment).
THE_AIU brought the genre of Electro Pop, i thing. But they called it “Mysterious Multinational Rock”. But clearly it so very different with Garasi, but the hallmark of aiu voice still feels clearly.
And now THE_AIU released a mini album titled “Minority” on September 21, 2011.
