Lunadira Stuns With Debut Album ‘i’ll be alright, right?’

| |

Malaysian singer-songwriter Lunadira today releases her highly-anticipated debut album ‘i’ll be alright, right?’ via TONGTONG Asia. The slow, scintillating reveal of the album’s first four singles (“OVERTHINKING” “GO SLOW”, title track “i’ll be alright, right?”, and “crying over nothing (wah wah)”) offered a sneak peek into the artist’s labyrinthine emotions, navigating the tumultuous waters of life, love, and self-discovery. Fans can listen to the album here.

Renowned for her saccharine vocals and lyrical brilliance, Lunadira tells stories that unfold like delicate flower petals, blending vulnerability, joy, and introspection. In ‘i’ll be alright, right?’ she bears a weariness with a thin veil of hope, streaked with familiar melancholia that’s heavy to feel but so easy to bop to. Balancing on this tightrope exemplifies how deft she has become as an artist since her salad days. 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.

She explains, “‘i’ll be alright, right?’ as an album is a returning to one’s self. It is not a celebration but an observation of the uncertainty of life and dealing with that ungracefully, and accepting that there is grace in uncertainty.” Collaborating with longtime musical partner Reddi Rocket on the project, Lunadira explores new musical territories, emphasising authenticity over conventionality in their production process.

Having retreated into a creative cocoon after the release of her last project ‘Tangerine’ in 2020, Lunadira has been re-discovering her sonic identity on the journey of completing her new album, honing in on and refining her craft – ever-evolving and boundless – to reflect her lived experiences in its truest form through her songwriting and sound.

The release of ‘i’ll be alright, right?’ follows her recently-announced debut appearance at Joyland Bali 2024, where she will be playing alongside artists including James BlakeKings of Convenience, and The Walters.
