Ballads of the Cliché are an Indiepop collective based in Jakarta. The band was founded back in 2003 when five old fellas reunited by their common interest in music. The band became an eight-pieced band since 2006, when they decided to make their long-served additional musicians as their permanent member and recorded their long awaited debut album, Evergreen, in August 2007. After that, Arafino Zaini and Ninatika Trimurti, the band's keyboardists and also Dimas Ario, the band’s bassist left the band due to personal reason. Now, the band is a five piece band, with a little help from Madava from bangkutaman and Dave Leonard.
Nine Years after the first album, Ballads of the Cliche Finally released their second Album, Called 'Paintings', in Mei 2016, with a cover song from Indiepop Band Another Sunny Day, 'I'm With Love with a girl who doesn't know I Exist'.
in 2020, before the pandemic happened, they just released the new Fresh Single called 'Step Out And Dance'.
