Indie starlet Lunadira and Ableton whiz kid Reddi Rocket have unveiled the bedroom pop anthem ‘Hoodie’.
Carefully crafted for easy listening, ‘Hoodie’ features catchy vocal lines intertwined with lo-fi guitars and is a no-frills love song at its core. The track gives listeners a taste of what to expect in their upcoming joint EP, set to be released later this year. ‘Hoodie’ follows their first collaboration ‘Lotto’, which was released in January.
On the new track, Lunadira shared,
“‘Hoodie’ is a conversational tune about the simplicity of being in a relationship where all you tend to fight about is stealing hoodies from your favourite person. ‘Hoodie’ encapsulates that feeling of companionship, through things that remind you of each other, whether it be through a piece of clothing, a scent, or a song.”
With plenty of musicality and heart, the enigmatic 26-year-old, Lunadira, is no stranger to the highs and lows of romance, serenading listeners with her delicate and unique perspective. Breaking away from the YouTube bubble of covers under the wing of This Way Up Records, the emerging star has gone from strength to strength with each consecutive single, accumulating 1.3 million plays on Spotify from almost 80 countries in the past year, performed at some of Malaysia’s leading festivals such as Good Vibes and Urbanscapes, as well as becoming the fresh new face of time-tested brands including Dr. Martens, Fred Perry and Levi’s. Lunadira has proven to be one to watch.
A multi-talented virtuoso who has remained mostly behind-the-scenes, Reddi Rocket is finally ready to carve a name for himself as Malaysia’s freshest emerging vocalist. With a wealth of studio and DJ-ing experience that includes opening for English duo Bondax and Soulection’s Andre Power and StarRo, the highly sought-after producer has reinvented himself to face the ever-changing landscape of the music industry.
Indeed, with its swaying vibes, layering colours and buttery vocals, the new collab song by the duo is, in a very Millenial term, “such a mood”.
