Art & Music


March 18, 2015

Been wanting to write this post for a while, I absolutely love finding new music. I’ve said a couple of times that one of my favourite things is how music stays the same no matter when you meet it.

So let me introduce you to Yuna, Malaysian singer-songwriter. I first heard about Yuna a year ago when Maxwell (love of my life) posted about how awesome she was opening for him at one of his shows. I immediately followed because of her amazing style, I mean, hijabi singer? I wanted to see and hear more and proceeded to listen to some of her music.

I did not expect what I heard at all. A truly beautiful voice. Happy music, sad music, haunting music all of it. I’d describe her as folksy, pop, indie with a dash of soul. Lol. It makes sense trust me. Here is how she describes her sound on her website

“I don’t really like the idea of putting myself in any category now,” she concludes. “But as a pop artist, I feel like it’s easy for me to maneuver from one thing to another and try different things. To me, it’s all just music, and if you have good lyrics and good melodies and good production, people won’t care what you call it. I think that people are looking for music that’s real and honest and that they can relate to emotionally.

I’m with you Yuna!


In addition to being so talented, she has amazing style, I mean she is one of my favourite follows on instagram (@yunamusic). She has a website where she sells scarves, clothes based on her personal style and DIY Terrariums . Can a person be more awesome? Girl after my heart. Nothing I love more than seeing creatives channelling their energy into various passions.


OK enough talk, lets get into the music.

When I searched her on Youtube, the first song I clicked on was “Mermaid” and immediately fell in love.

As I continued to search her, I found different sounds. I mean listen to how happy this song is


This song though, I think is my favourite, I think.

So there’s Yuna for you, what do you think?

What new (to you) music are you listening to please share.

Love always,

    I’ve never heard of her, but I’m always team hijabi so I’ll check her out. She sounds really cool.

    I just found an Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith and Taylor Swift mix on Youtube. I’ve been overdosing since then. Taylor was the only name i was familiar with before and I couldn’t even name any of her songs.
