Jakarta, indonesia (Top40 Charts/ SORE Official Website) - SORE is a Jakarta-based indie band whose musical variety went almost beyond description. Imagine the Beatles
grew up in the Pacifics, listening to the music of Steely Dan, Morrisey, Interpol, and Antonio Carlos
Jobim. Their music are richly enhanced with strings and brass section. SORE consists of brilliantly-unique-left-handed guitar and bass players (all of them) plus five different vocals in one album (yes, they are all singing!).
SORE is counted in some music genres such as Indie/Collage Rock/Movie Sound Track/Southern Rock.
Heavily influenced with The Beatles, Morrissey, Steely Dan, Interpol, Gino Vannelli, Frank Zappa, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Smashing Pumpkins, Sonic Youth, Procol Harum, America, Paul Simon, Burt Bacharach, Charles Mingus, Miles Davis, Ludwig van Beethoven, Masaru Satoh, Krzysztof Komeda, Michael Franks, Gil Evans.
Valued with the audience to be similar with Eggstone, Andrew Bird, Arcade Fire, Badly Drawn Boy, Last Shadow Puppets, Beirut, The Wondermints.
SORE's first album received praise from all quarters. The Time Magazine Asia acknowledged 'CENTRALISMO' as "One of Five Asian Albums Worth Buying", and ranked number 40 in "150 Greatest Indonesian Albums of All Time" in the Rolling Stone Indonesia magazine. And now after working their materials for more than a year, they're back with their second album entitled 'PORTS OF LIMA' (Aksara Records - 2008) to great critical acclaim. It was recently voted "Best Album of 2008' (number one) by the Rolling Stone Indonesia magazine.
