Drowned in just the right amount of reverb, the single boasts some pretty good production values, and while the realities of Malaysian radio will mean that it won’t really make them overnight stars, it is nonetheless another noteworthy and fascinating testament to the variety of sounds currently emanating from the Malaysian independent music scene.
