Najwa To Digitally Release New EP Aurora

Bookmark and Share

Malaysian singer-songwriter Najwa, most well known for her award-winning R&B/retro pop single "Got To Go" (view video below), will digitally release her new EP Aurora on March 5th. The EP's folk/electronic bonus track, "Seri Mersing" will be available digitally on February 10th wherever music is sold online.

Speaking of "Seri Mersing", the only non-English track on the EP which boldly manipulates the Johorian ghazal into an unconventional form, Najwa says, "Going to Berklee and learning about everyone's different culture and music has made me realized that as a Malaysian I too have a unique identity to share with the world. Why should I be ashamed of my heritage? There's always a sense of pride when I sing my folk songs here and hearing someone who doesn't speak the language enjoy the melody regardless."

Aurora embraces a minimalistic electronic approach and marks a drastic departure from Najwa's vintage R&B aesthetics. The sounds are still soulful, just electronically based. Collaborating with producer Harsya Wahono, she notes, "The songs can acoustically stand on their own as I will always be a singer-songwriter at heart. They are just stripped down into an electronic setting to match the contemporary style that I am leaning towards from being inspired by James Blake and Little Dragon." The EP comes nearly three years after the release of her debut album Innocent soul in 2011, for which she won Best Local English Song and Best New Artiste at AIM (Malaysian Music Industry Awards).

Aurora is digitally self-released under Najwa's own record label, Nada Biru Muzik. The full track listing is as follows:
1. Lover
2. Before
3. Floatin'
4. Wonderland
5. Seri Mersing - Bonus track

Currently New York based, Najwa will be performing at a select few NY dates, with her first headlining performance on March 28 at Ella Lounge. Tickets: http://bit.ly/1aE61LE
