Malaysian songstress LUNADIRA, who shook the local scene with her first single ‘Forever Is Not Our Thing’ not too long ago, is back with a brand new bop called ‘STUCK WITH YOU’, with a direction-shift in terms on sound.
Her latest song is clearly different than her first single that has successfully garnered more than 200,000 plays on Spotify. LUNADIRA delved into the head-thudding mystic arts of R&B specifically for this track, and with the help of upcoming producer Harith Jamil, the experimentation paid off as the song allowed LUNADIRA to experiment without totally losing her initial sound. Her character is also more sound in this track – a sign of confidence and growth on her part, which may be one of the reasons as to why Jin Hackman chose her as the second artist after Airliftz to be a part of his special project that he’s running at This Way Up.
‘STUCK WITH YOU’, now at 6,000 plays, has been perceived well by music fans and critics alike so far. The best thing about the song is LUNADIRA’s ability to attract the masses without sacrificing her art: the guitar is still present, the colors are still vibrant, and the reception has been positive through and through.
With a spot at the upcoming Good Vibes Festival, you can say that the 3-Minute-Slot-Girl-With-The-Tiny-Ukelele has a big future ahead of her internationally.
