Liner Notes written by Alfan Rahadi

Pertama kali mendengarkan rilisan Benalu Records dari Bandung yaitu Glare, kesan yang pertama saya dapat adalah bahwa Benalu records ini pasti bakal menelurkan band - band screamo/emoviolence berkualitas macam label - label di negeri jiran bahkan Ebullition records USA. Tetapi setelah menemukan Aillis diantara roster mereka, saya ternyata salah, Benalu ini adalah Jade Tree recordnya Bandung.

Saya pikir dulu twinkly emo hanya bisa ditemukan di sekitaran daerah Jakarta maupun Jatinangor ternyata Bandung telah membuktikannya. Band beranggotakan Akhyar Bagaskara (vokal), Fikri Suryatama (bass & gitar), dan Haris Surya (Drum) ini mencoba membuat playground baru di skena musik Bandung dan single pertamanya yang berjudul As Near As Veins merupakan debut yang manis yang pernah mereka upayakan.

EP Aillis juga merupakan hal spesial, karena partisipasi fans juga ikut membidani lahirnya EP ini karena dibiayai dengan penjualan merch yang masih berjalan ini. Semangat DIY inilah yang merupakan nilai plus dari mereka. Sekarang EP Aillis sudah lengkap dan saya dihadapkan dengan dua lagu berjudul Secular dan A Lot Of Sins, yang sepintas terdengar religius dan sufistik. Apakah Aillis ingin mencoba pendekatan
eksistensialis para sejawat screamo seperti Adorno dan I Create? Line seperti "The life and faith is one." atau "Everything is Temporary" dari "Secular" maupun "forgive me maybe I did not deserve", "forgive me for what should not be done" dari A Lot Of Sins seakan memberi tanda bahwa lagu - lagu mereka dan teks yang mereka pertunjukkan, mengirimkan misi dan visi pendahulu "Revolution Summer". Walaupun dari sisi Aillis terdengar lebih kepada spiritualisme daripada eksistensialisme.

Namun, sisi intrinsik dan elemen "vague" atau kiasan - kiasan yang buram sehingga mengundang interpretasi luas lah yang membuat Aillis berbeda dari beberapa sejawat di regionalnya yang sering membawa tema romantis remaja maupun amarah yang terfokus. Keresahan atau ansietas ini lah mungkin yang membuat balutan melodi twinkle mereka lebih bernyawa.

Track Name: Secular
How strong the wall in the way.
The world is full of new thinking
save and beyond it
As if there will be not life.

Stupidity of the endless
You are the ones yourself.
How strong and confident about the truth.
the net is your weapon.

Could you fight the habit
Limiting the truth is eternal.
For the existence of a very short.
Cabinet for something to fear.

// creating new ideas
And back to where we are.
Give me back your mind as usual.
Clear the heart when we were born.

The life and faith is one.
Straight forward without limitation.

It's faint, perhaps, for most people.
But rest assured that makes all clear.
Or get rid of what we've got.
It's gonna to be taken as we don't have anything.
everything is temporary

Stupidity of the endless
You are the ones yourself.
How strong and confident about the truth.
the net is your weapon.
Could you fight the habit
Limiting the truth is eternal.
For the existence of a very short.

// creating new ideas
And back to where we are.
Give me back your mind as usual.
Clear the heart when we were born.
Track Name: The Journey
I climb up steep mountains with eyes closed
I will tell even one word
is the intersection in the opposite direction
it does not matter even if only one foot

I have everything you need to be saved.
leaving everything behind the past
My head is full of rope tied up tight.
Leaves fall in the summer one by one

I'm would to talk to the ground when I'm lost.
Hide her to see all the time.
when I'm lost.

kept me wonder if this is just a dream
save love and faith to someday
the fact that not everyone believes
having fun and joking as they pleased

walk because I can not afford to run
sweat to witness my journey so far

growing trees soaring into the clouds
their roots are in the soil root wild creep
overlay surrounds heaven
close your eyes are in my arms and you navigate tears
Track Name: A Lot of Sins
tottering in reality
which might not everyone experienced
worse between make all irregular

the courage to try things that might be against a habit that should not be
took the decision to not do the same
choose to stay here and not go back home
but came back to go, away from things that are not supposed to be

dont let me go on like this
let the soul is uncertain and doesn't mean
I was frightened and very scared when like this
When this choice I definitely still have to choose

what makes me like this
I was afraid of this
eyes, heart and mind continues to haunt
as will be refused and kept yelling at my life

What makes my heart so hard
until I could not shed a tear in front of you
if there is nothing wrong with this in mind
until this mind can not keep thinking about you

forgive me maybe I did not deserve
forgive me for what should not be done
I was not me that is completely
too much dirt that is in my heart and mind
Track Name: As Near As Veins
every breath that in life
any favors have I felt
smile crying hard glad that we have passed
how many sins we have done
arrogant and feel the high that makes us blind

The most perfect feeling that makes us can not hear
wash your face to hear water

*
wash your face to hear water
if you are still asleep or pretend to sleep?
supposing tomorrow just fiction
What will be done
cry or smile?

what a great blessing that we are not aware of
though only things that fuckin ordinary

how can you live without space
where the existence of that space?
what do you think so far
if he is not good and you assume he is not fair

try to open your mind
Did you guys deserve to live?

The most perfect feeling that makes us can not hear
wash your face to hear water

*
wash your face to hear water
if you are still asleep or pretend to sleep?
supposing tomorrow just fiction
What will be done
cry or smile?

what do you want?
What do you guys expect?
What is the life to live
and find it is uncertain
do you remember before we live
or after we in turn off later
don't forget from where you came
and remember above the sky
