Emerging from the city of Bogor in Indonesia, punk band The Jansen’s fervent following can be attributed to the band’s raw energy, wry humour and anthemic melodies. Comprising brothers Cintarama Bani Satria (guitar, vocals) and Adji Pamungkas (bass) alongside drummer Aduy, the band cites ‘70s punk bands like Talking Heads, The Undertones, Ramones, The Buzzcocks as key influences, as well as music by label Sarah Records and compilation albums Killed by Death and C86.
In 2020, The Jansen teamed up with Grimace Records from Texas, USA, to begin publishing works on digital platforms, such as the album Say Say Say. In April 2022, the band released their third full-length album, Banal Makin Binal on tape format, followed by a mini tour to Jakarta. A few months later, they teamed up with Demajors Records to release a CD and promote their third album on digital platforms. The Jansen's line-up was completed with the inclusion of Karina Restiani, filling in on guitar and vocals.
In 2023, The Jansen released their latest work, a maxi single titled Observasi Sinting, available only via Bandcamp. Then, they released a split album with two other indie pop bands from Sarah Records, Loon from Semarang and The Caroline’s from Surabaya. Titled Flowery Melancholia, this album has been released in digital and cassette formats.
