Massy Listens

to music BWAHAHAHAHA (ogie, seriously, kidding, I must be high XD)

My days are as normal as any other day, juz so happen dat today is slightly special, why? you may ask? Coz I've discovered a really awesome band. Found them when I was browsing facebook. And guess wut? They're MALAYSIAN. *cheer~

On top of that, my fav genre! Indies! *cheer again.

Enuff with my hyperness and lets get on to introducing shall we?

Estrella consist of 5 members, as follows:

Liyana - Vocals, Guitars
Yob - Guitars
Jeff - Drums
Wan - Percussions
Ariff - Bass

Formed in 2006, Estrella originally consisted of three members; Ashraf, Syariful Adzwan (Yob), and fronted by Liyana. In May 2006, the Troubaganger acoustic gig marked their first-ever performance, initially winning over the audience at cozy La Bodega KL. However, very soon after the three members were then reduced to the current two as Ashraf decided to leave the band for personal reasons.

Armed with their guitars and heartfelt tunes, Liyana and Yob began circulating the local music scene with their own brand of acoustic music. Numerous open-mic sessions and gigs at notable shows around town followed suit; namely Moonshine, Troubadours, Doppelganger, and No Black Tie, and the band began to generate more attention for the duo from both the audience and the organizers.

In June 2006, Estrella’s first single, ‘Take It Slow’ was featured in Troubadours’s “The Voices Next Door” compilation album, and the song was then taken by RedComm productions as part of the soundtrack for the SunSilk TV series Impian Illiyana which ran for 13 consecutive weeks. Gaining some pretty decent exposure in the media as well as the indie scene, friendships were also made with likeminded individuals and groups along the way, providing them with even more ideas and opportunity to grow musically.

Check out their infos as follows...
