The Melodrama was formed on 17 August 2013 in Tasikmalaya. The band is consisting of Abe as the vocalist and acoustic guitarist and Pupung Purnama as a nylon acoustic guitarist that gives a soft impression to each song as well as the chanting of synthesizers that enrich the nuances of the melodrama.
The Melodrama is a pop acoustic band that combines elements of acoustic guitar and synthesizer with shades of indie pop, British pop, and folk. In each of their works, The Melodrama is inspired by daily life, love, social, humanity, and the environment.
The Melodrama's lyrics are mostly educational. "Boneka Kayu" is dedicated to Si Unyil, "Senandung Lawas" is dedicated to the legendary Indonesian musicians, "Polaroid" is dedicated to photographers, "Saat Bumi Tak Bersahabat" is dedicated to the environment. A collection of several singles soon will be put together in an album.
