Leaving; The point is leaving things in the past to go to a new life / new memories. You could say moving on, but this is more about the process; pain, loss, old wounds & new wounds, etc. become one. So fading it is a process. There are 2 views in terms of fading, it can fade to the end or fade is part of the healing process until it merges/completes and becomes alive; how about the perspective of the listener only.
The process of this song is somewhat unique, the making of this song started in early 2019. Initially we wanted to release it around 2019 to 2020. But time said otherwise, we (timekeep) had to lose our beloved vocalist (vian pratama) who had cancer when he was young. As if we already know what we want to happen, our guitarist (ridho) also wants to focus on starting his new life by building a small family that keeps us from being able to force our will and in the end we look for other solutions. Until finally this empty vocal field is filled by 3 vowel sounds; ridho (old personnel), nopal (new vocalist) and andre from tough love to fill in the scream sound which became the identity of Timekeep itself.
Timekeep is now complete with 5 great personnel, namely Nopal (vocals), Tiwa from Negativeifften (lead guitar), idaemrisna (guitarythm / back voc), Rinaldy (bass) and Brian from Flair Band (drums). After a long wait for the release of our EP entitled “Epoch” (2018), we ventured to release “Leaving” to be our new step in music. With the new personnel, we hope that there will be new colors in our music and fresh air for us to continue on this beautiful journey.
This is what has to happen, so it’s time to “Leaving” for something new. Time will tell.
