Back in 2013, SOG (Sekumpulan Orang Gila) grabbed their first VIMA award when they easily over-powered their way to the Best College Act title.
Now its only taken them 3 years to land the highest honour of VIMA MUSIC AWARDS by being named one of the 4 acts to win the coveted VIMA Thank You For
Existing Award, set aside for the most innovative and creative act among all the nominees.
What sets them apart from other rock acts is their ability to merge and infuse other elements and styles to generate their own freestyle genre that’s infectious, hard and melodic all at the same time.
The band provided some answers to a quick set of interview questions we put forth recently.
1. Congratulations on winning the VIMA THANK YOU FOR EXISTING AWARD. How do you feel about being bestowed the highest honor for VIMA?
Thank you! Actually we didn’t expect to receive the highest honor for VIMA. Of course we are elated to win such a thing. With this kind of recognition, we are absolutely gonna strive harder in creating music and to share it with the world.
2. Who are your key influence to your style of music and genre?
P.Ramlee, M.Nasir and some international acts like Issues, Bring Me The Horizon & Underoath.
3. What are you currently working on and what can your fans expect from you in the near future?
We are currently working on our upcoming brand new album. To be released this November 9th.
4. If you had a chance to perform with any musician in the world, who would it be and why?
Linkin Park. They’re the biggest modern rock band in the world!
5. What are your thoughts about the current music scene and what can be done to make things better?
Our current music scene is full of negative vibes. These kind of dangerous vibes eventually will impair the creativity level of our local talents. We have to unite, stand strong together in order to make things better. Our music scene needs a revolution.
