Indo Dhans is indie pop by Bay Area-born and Brooklyn-living composer/producer Brama Sukarma. The music was born from a Fender Squire bought on Craigslist for $40. For a while Brama had been jealous of his friends on stage playing indie shows in Brooklyn while he was getting a masters in classical composition—classical music is dope but it can be a little solitary composing it. In typical DIY fashion, Brama writes and records everything in his bedroom, which allows him to dedicate a huge amount of time to creating his songs. Outside of Brama’s own life experiences, the biggest inspirations to the music of Indo Dhans are John Hughes films, 90s Rom-Coms, memories of Bay Area burritos, Indonesia, New York, and the beach.
Now he’s back with release of his new EP titled The Dream, a properly named album as the record takes us into a journey to memory lane to the heydays of the 80s with its synth driven music that walks in the thin line between New Wave and Dream Pop.
“This EP is really me just trying to have fun making songs while trying to create the feelings I experience while walking around lower Manahattan.”
