A track from the second album of The Venopian Solitude, the one woman band of the immensely talented Suiko Takahar (a pseudonym on top of a moniker), from Selangor, Malaysia. I happen to follow her since she released her first songs on Bandcamp. It is a delight to see how she developed from a bedroom artist covering Arcade Fire to a Malaysian star who even is in (local) KFC commercials Meanwhile she destroys the myth that all moslim women are nothing but 'boys factories'.

Suiko Takahara began by making her own brand of music and releasing it on Facebook and Bandcamp, which slowly garnered her a following amidst the anonymity. Her choice of instruments range of ‘anything she can get her hands on’, from the typical sounds of an acoustic guitar to the atypical tissue box.

Calling upon the influences of Kimya Dawson, Regina Spektor, Laura Marling and Kimbra (to name a few), she’s put together an EP, ‘Warkah Narcissus’ in May 2013. The EP was fully funded by The Wknd after she sent in a demo as part of their Recording Fund Contest.

Recently she released a second album, and "is planning on destroying the local music industry and subsequently dominating Earth with her brain-damaging musical repertoire."
