About

Growing up in Kuala Lumpur with music on the radio and MTV shaping a young Nadira, the enigmatic songstress had her start like many of her peers, posting earnest covers on the Internet until the first original track ‘Forever’s Not Our Thing’ lifted her from anonymity.

Following a slew of annual lovelorn laments, Lunadira’s collaborative project with Reddi Rocket Tangerine was released in 2020 to considerable fanfare, with the buoyant lead single ‘Hoodie’ becoming an instant favorite, effectively expanding her reach of listeners.

“We’re no longer in the orange skies and instead [we] are wading in deep waters.”

The wide-eyed sweetness that oozed from her Tangerine EP has been sharpened by a personal reckoning that occurred during the COVID-19 pandemic. She emerged from it a woman still grappling with existential ponderings along with a heightened awareness of herself and her main mode of catharsis—songwriting.

In her forthcoming debut album ‘i’ll be alright, right’?, Lunadira bares a weariness with a thin veil of hope, streaked with a familiar melancholia that’s heavy to feel but so easy to bop to. By balancing on this tight rope, it exemplifies how deft she has become as an artist since her salad days.

The tender vulnerability that most would equate with Lunadira remains, in spite of the changes she had experienced personally. From r’n’b to garage and grunge, she shapeshifts through a spectrum of genres and moods that constitute the pop of our times--eclectic and moving; fun and sultry.

Fans have in turn shown their love by selling out her two-night ‘Tangerine Live’ concert. Tastemakers around the globe have taken notice too as she regaled in purple on the COLORS stage, paying homage to her Javanese roots and representing Malaysia on the Berlin-based video platform. Further, she shared a South by Southwest (SXSW) bill with fellow artists from the Asian diaspora, namely Balming Tiger and LØREN.

In boldly confessing a sense of being unmoored, she endears herself to fans even more. Like the rest of us, Lunadira doesn’t have all the answers. It’s through her introspection that we see the parts of ourselves who also struggle; just like her, we want to know whether we’ll be alright.
