about

"Coffee" is Leanna Rachel's first song in both English and Bahasa Indonesia. Recorded in Bali, produced and played by all Indonesian musicians, "Coffee" is also featured as part of the soundtrack for the film Filosofi Kopi 2 (Visinema Pictures), in theaters July 13, 2017.

Nestapa namun nrimo.

Demikian pemaparan ringkas-padat paling pas untuk menggambarkan “Coffee”.

Tembang terbaru milik biduanita jelita asal Los Angeles, Leanna Rachel, ini berkisah soal hubungan asmara yang awalnya mesra berseri-seri tapi ternyata berujung pada patah hati. Segala kenangan manis yang dijalani bersama-sama mesti dilupakan, ditinggalkan sepenuhnya. Hati harus dikuatkan. Menjalani kehidupan sendiri menjadi pilihan.

“Coffee” yang begitu saja tercipta di sepucuk hari kala Leanna tertimpa gelisah, paradoksal senang-sedih, kontradiktif pasif-agresif, mencoba meyakinkan kita bahwa perasaan duka tak mesti terus diratapi. Bahwa duka seyogianya dirangkul, dipeluk saja, terbuka diterima.

Selain mengandung pesan positif—hidup tawakal dijalani, badai pasti berlalu—lagu setengah riang ini juga menjadi semacam pertanda bahwa Leanna serius mengakrabi Indonesia, Sabang-Merauke adalah rumahnya kini. Tahun lalu, 2016, misalnya, merupakan masa paling lama perempuan blasteran Amerika-Filipina ini tinggal di Indonesia. Lebih dari 1 tahun tanpa jeda. Di “Coffee” pula Leanna mulai memasukkan secuplik lirik berbahasa Indonesia.

“Saya senang mendengar ketika orang berbicara dalam Bahasa Indonesia. Tentu saja saya girang saat menyanyi dalam Bahasa Indonesia. Bagi saya, semua pengalaman itu terasa alami dan cair.”

"Saya masih belajar agar bisa lebih lancar, makanya saya hanya memasukkan satu verse saja sebagai permulaan,” ujar Leanna semringah.

Pun “Coffee” menegaskan pekatnya “Selera Nusantara” di diri Leanna sebab seluruhnya direkam di Bali serta para partisipan adalah musisi anak negeri yaitu Noriz Kiki (drum) serta Edi Pande Kurniawan (bas) dengan melibatkan produser sakti mandraguna Dadang Pranoto.

Mari teguk kopi dan sambut hari baru sendiri, mandiri!

lyrics

Lyrics

I know I should find a way to make it
Make it on my own this time
Stop making choices based on someone else's dream
Believe my own
Oh it feels like I'm already on my way
Like I'm on my way

Every time I feel like I can't take it I remind myself it's all inside
Stop for a moment, take a breath and close my eyes
See what that feels like
Oh I'll try to get by without you in mind
Without you in mind

I miss the smell of your coffee
I miss waking you up early
When you had to be somewhere
Baby, you had me good
Baby, you had me good

Badai hatiku harus berlalu, kuatku percaya diriku
Menyambut fajar pagi, aku masih rindu
Tapi harus pergi
Mesti merawat hati, mesti menyayang diri
Without you in mind

I miss the smell of your coffee
I miss waking you up early
When you had to be somewhere
Baby, you had me good
Baby, you had me good

I miss the smell of your coffee
I miss waking you up early
When you had to be somewhere
Baby, you had me good
Baby, you had me good

I miss waking you up early
I miss the smell of your coffee and cigarettes
I miss the smell of your coffee
