Kuala Lumpur based pop punk band Night Skies & Visions has been named as one of the recipient for the Best College Act award by the Voice International Music Awards(VIMA)
VIMA is an awards platform which catered mostly to musicians across Asian countries such as Malaysia,Indonesia,Singapore and many more.Besides the Best College Act,the quartet were also nominated for Best Rock Song for their debut single ‘Taking Chances.
They were presented their award at Sunway University,the higher institution which the band represented,where two of the members are pursuing their tertiary education.It is noted that the band played their first show at the campus back two years ago.
The award is not the first recognition that the band received this year.They were also listed as “One Of The Acts To Look Out For in 2017” by local news portal The Level.To further solidify the claim, the band has been invited to play at Jakcloth Summerfest,one of Jakarta’s biggest independent music festival back in May.
When asked about their plans in the future, guitarist Megat Salleh said that they still have a lot more that they want to achieve. “We got an EP out back in April and we spent 10 months working on it with multiple shows in between recording.It was insane and we’re gonna spend the rest of the year promoting it.This award means a lot to us as it shows that we are getting acknowledged by the people in the music industry.”
Malaysia made a clean swoop in the Best College Act category as Sabahan six-piece tribal band Sada Borneo & singer songwriter Zee Ng were named as the other recipient for the award.
