Like mad scientists in a lab, Offroads love mixing in various genres into one
psychedelic shot to create something rather exquisite and interesting. But at
the same time, they stay true to what was core to them – roots, rock and
Hailing from Malaysia, Mauritius and Maldives, they met by chance and
formed a band in 2012. Though challenges arise at first, they managed to
finalize a stable line-up within a few weeks. They made a debut at an open
mic session in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, where they were offered to
headline the next gig. Since then, Offroads had been making their way
through various music scenes.
Offroads switched from covers to originals as soon as they can. Coming from
different regions and music backgrounds, they experiment with eclectic styles
and subtle rhythms to create dynamic chord progressions. Growing up with a
heart for reggae explains the eccentric groove and soul present prominently
in their music. Besides grasping every gig opportunity as possible, they are
currently working on an EP to be released in the near future.
Creating music that clearly speaks to who and what they are, Offroads is sure
as hell way off the common roads.
