itarum is a musical project for Civil Enginerer, Andy Citawarman, who used to play for a bsand once known as Snowman (Aus) which Pitchfork described as a “unique and bracing avant-rock band and a force to be reckoned with”.
With Citarum, Andy focuses more on ambience, melodies and vivid memories he has of growing up in West Java, Indonesia and creating a feeling of longing to something intangible…something unsettling yet gives you comfort…something dark yet there are cracks of light appearing…something primal wanting to come out.
