Now in 2021, they are proud to finally present their debut album by releasing the first taste in a high-octane glam-metal meets The Ramones vibe track called ‘Lu Power’ featuring Noh Salleh of Hujan fame. According to the vocalist Myo, “LU POWER is one of 12 songs on our upcoming self-titled album. LU POWER is a witty song addressing the failing ruling system and the need to unify the music, art, and film communities, for a better future. LU POWER also features Noh Salleh rapping on the song, a talent he mastered even before HUJAN was formed, Noh used to rap in a local rap group called M.I.X.”
