Fusing synth pop and alternative hooks so effortlessly that it can seem accidental, Goodnight Electric began as Henry Foundation solo project in late 2003. At first Goodnight Electric live performance supported by Bondi Goodboy and Oomleo, then evolves as a solid line up of trio indie pop group. Goodnight Electric released their debut album “Love and Turbo Action” at the end of 2004 under independent label HFMF records with singles “Am I Robot?” and “Rocket Ship Goes By” which claimed appreciation and nods amongst the music heads, especially around the youth of Jakarta. The trio worked on their own songs and also honed their remixing skills, tweaking songs the album for bonus tracks, as well as live performances. This kind of topnotch first steps wouldn’t be succeeded without the help of media partners and supportive scenes, such as promoters from indie scene to festival promoters, and also loyal fans. As the result Goodnight Electric was hand picked by TIMES Magazine in 2008 as “5 Asian Acts To Watch”. By staying true to themselves, they’ve created a more focused, propulsive, and satisfying follow-up. After succeeded in the first print, HFMF records repackage the “Love and Turbo Action” (silver album) in 2005. Among compilations and Soundtracks, Goodnight Electric released Electroduce Yourself in 2007, and prints a 7-inch vinyl of single “Interval” in 2009.
