“...a truly spectacular piece of

forward-thinking folk."


- The Line Of Best Fit


For fans of... Joanna Newsom, Björk, Emiliana Torrini, First Aid Kit


Indonesian folk-pop duo Stars and Rabbit have unveiled their magical new video for single
Man Upon The Hill, out now via Green Island Music. The single is taken from the band's debut album Constellation, which is available to buy on iTunes and stream on Spotify now.

The enchanting new video is available to watch now via the band's YouTube channel.



The video is a feast for the eyes; visually stunning from the offset, framing the captivating lead singer Elda Suryani and guitarist Adi Widodo in numerous ethereal landscapes in their native Indonesia. This video was directed by Bona Palma, in collaboration with senior D.O.P Arief Pribadi, telling the story of two separate entities unwittingly interconnected by time and space. “Being in nature connects you to your own deepest thoughts and feelings and only through that can you really listen to them." explains Elda, ”the song was created out in the open, in nature, therefore the music video needed to be echo those same feelings”.

Man Upon The Hill originally premiered on The Line Of Best Fit and is available to stream via the Stars and Rabbit Soundcloud page.



Man Upon The Hill is a whimsical folk tale about a man on top of a hill who is accepting reality, letting go of his past and moving on. Lead singer Elda Suryani’s incredibly unique vocal carries the song effortlessly and conjures memories of gifted female vocalists such as Björk, Lamb and CoCoRosie. Combining her enchanting vocals with guitarist Adi Widodo’s stunning musical arrangement, Man Upon The Hill is a wonderfully quirky track, filled with dream-like qualities that fans of Emiliana Torrini and First Aid Kit will identify with.

The duo formed in Yogyakarta, Indonesia in 2011 when Elda enlisted the skills of Adi to help her with her songwriting. As their songwriting thrived and compositions began to take shape, the pair decided to come up with a band name, settling on Stars and Rabbit, and the rest, as they say, is history. Since the release of previous singles Worth It and The House, the band have continued to create a name for themselves in their home country, where they have a huge reputation, gaining support from the likes of The Line of Best Fit and IDOL Magazine in the UK as well as Indonesia's Rolling Stone Magazine and The Beat Magazine amongst many others.

Man Upon The Hill by Stars and Rabbit is out now via Green Island Music. Their debut album Constellation is available to buy on iTunes and stream on Spotify now.
