Vocalist Aldas lyrics engage with voices that explore politics, religion, feminism and queer rights in South East Asia and the diaspora. Sung in both Bahasa Indonesian and English and the band name taken from the Chinese Mandarin phrase meaning ‘to come/next,’ Lái invoke identities and themes that often inter-connect but also conflict in the world around us.
