If you’ve noticed, we’ve been hit by a wave recently plague-ing us all Malaysians. The indie wave to be more precise. From indie music right down to indie clothes. If you’re an indie fan and not based in KL, then DiGi Telecommunications along with Laguna Records presents Sounds Unite specially for you Kota Kinabalu and Johor Bahru peeps. Rejoice you non-KLites!
Local talents line up includes top local indie bands One Buck Short, Bittersweet, Purevibracion, Seven Collar T-Shirt, They Will Kill Us All and Prana. These bands need no introduction themselves with some being pioneers in the Malaysian music scene.
On the reasons behind “Sounds Unite”, DiGi’s Head of Segments, Koay Chee Keong, explained: “The indie scene in Malaysia is slowly gaining traction and recognition in Malaysia and abroad. To aid the growth of local indie bands, we are providing a platform for them to promote their unique sound via the DiGi Music portal.
All six bands will be performing at Dewan Foo Chow in Kota Kinabalu (5 December) and C.T. CafÃ© & Sports Arena in Johor Bahru (13 December). Local acts such as 3rd Dice, WORM and Donatello are invited as well to join the showcase line up.
Free showcase passes for DiGi Music Unlimited subscribers can be redeemed at specific DiGi Specialised Stores in Kota Kinabalu and Johor Bahru between 11am to 9pm from 16 November onwards.
