    The Endleaves (CD)

    The Endleaves is a punk blues rock band fronted by Shaneil Devaser from Kota Kinabalu, North Borneo on vocals and guitars, Riz Rashid on guitars and vocals, Jeremiah Abraham on the bass and Harvey Chamberlain on the drums.


    Often likened to the Foo Fighters and Oasis, the band plays tunes heavily influenced by the 90s, with an injection of folky flair. It’s all about wailing vocals, screaming guitars, groovy bass lines and thumping drums. Think: loud.

    This is a story about Itin, an eight-year-old Bornean elephant who lives in Sabah, Malaysian Borneo. In his journey of discovery, Itin learns from his mother and relatives about folklore that tells how elephants are revered by indigenous communities, and what he should expect once he leaves the herd.
