Anaki Rocks the City!



Pop Rock

Post modern troubadours.

Tell us a bit more about yourselves.

Our band is whole. Whole like Nasi Lemak. Whole as in, 'Wholy shiet' if one item's missing, you'll still be hungry after you're done and you're thinking, I want more.

How did you Nasi Lemak ingredients get together?

One day, a friend wanted to create music. He called in a friend, who called in a friend. Then a friend joined in and they weren't complete until a friend of a friend decided to join too.

That's a lot of friends in your Nasi Lemak... tell us how do you work together as a band?

All of us come from different walks of life and all of us each have a weird yet unique personality. When it comes to music, we change from "different" to "one" personality; Like combining a "bun, patty, tomatoes, lettuce and cheese" - different ingredients but when put together, it becomes an awesome burger. That's what we are when get together - an awesome burger. We're like a meal - our different characteristics add flavour to our music and with that, we’ve learnt to understand how each of us work and together, aim towards a common goal.

Cool, so you're the Nasi Lemak Burger with cheese. We assume your fav thing about Singapore's the food?

Yup! Over here, we can get a taste of almost every culture that can be found around the world, which makes Rojaks like us feel at home. Oh and because Singapore isn’t afraid to bring up the spiciness.

Ok, let's move from food to music. What do you hope for your audience to imagine and feel when they listen to your songs

The sense of familiarity and comfort, for them to know that we understand what they are going through or have gone through, assuring them that they are not alone. We play the kind music that we feel our audience can connect to and sing their stories.

Nice. Fast forward to 2040. Where do you see yourselves on the little red dot?

Probably on the west side being rockstar grandparents.
