“We were affected by the passing of a close friend of the band’s- so we decided to write a small set of songs in memory of him. The lyrics were reflections on how it felt like searching for something that wasn’t there, and the word ‘Rayau’ (Malay for ‘to roam’) felt like it summed up that feeling very well.”
Singaporean screamo band Naedr have released their split record with Chicago screamo band Crowning. The full thing is streaming now and vinyl editions are available as well via Left Hand Label, Zegema Beach Records pressed on beautiful mixed purple/brown marble wax.
“We’re incredibly grateful to Crowning, Left Hand Label, Zegema Beach Records for this release. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do. Thank you for supporting us and lending us your ears. It means the world to us.”
