KSCN 2012 [no label, 1CD]
Connections with Nic Harcourt, KCSN Studio, Northridge, CA; April 7, 2012. Excellent FM recording.
You don’t need state sponsorship to do your own thing. Here’s Yuna (Yunalis Zarai), like another Malaysian, Zee Avi, who is making her own waves in the music scene.
Growing up in Malaysia (born in Alor Setar, Kedah; considers Subang Jaya, Selangor her hometown), Yuna, 26, was first inspired by acts like No Doubt, The Cranberries, and Fiona Apple. At the age of 19, while in law school, she picked up a guitar and began to fervently write. She released her self-titled EP in Malaysia in 2008. The single “Deeper Conversation” became a massive success and went on to win the title of Best English Song at the 2009 AIM Awards, Malaysia’s national music awards. Yuna swept the ceremony, garnering Best Pop Song and Song of the Year for her Malay song, “Dan Sebenarnya”.
She released her digital EP Decorate in March 2011. Also, in 2011, SPIN featured Yuna in their Buzzcatcher piece, “Eight Bands You Need to Hear Now” and she gave a stellar performance before a packed audience at MTV Iggy’s “Best New Band in the World” concert in New York City. Yuna was a finalist in the “Best New Band in the World” competition and the show aired live on MTV’s HD Screen in New York.
In April 2012, Yuna, who has appeared on Conan O’Brien, released her self-titled debut album, featuring the single, Live Your Life. Anyone who covers Nirvana’s Come As You Are live on radio must be confident herself. And she sounds pretty good too.
Malaysia lagi boleh! (Malaysia still can!)
