The country of anime, Harajuku and the perfect submergence of modernisation and tradition, Japan will be receiving our very own R&B singer-songwriter, NJWA as she travels in her Japan tour this November.
On singles only, we review singles from all across Southeast Asia, from all genres and levels of popularity. These are the songs that are stuck in our heads (for better or for worse). Our album and EP reviews will now be done separately in their own individual articles.
Follow our Spotify playlist here to keep updated with the scene!
EARLIER in the week, we had the fortune to meet singer Najwa Mahiaddin — who you may remember from a mindblowing performance of “Seri Mersing” live on Festival Filem Malaysia ke-27 — for a quick drink and a chat.
Why have we kept seeking out differences in each other, when it is clear that we are more alike than different?
AS we write this, we’re listening to Najwa Mahiaddin’s sophomore album Aurora and we must say: this five-track EP just isn’t enough. We simply want more of Najwa’s soulful vocals and emotive lyrics!
