Shakira Idora

Designer — Malaysia

What music defines the teenage you?
The Yeah Yeah Yeahs' album 'Fever To Tell'. This album was important to me for many reasons back then. It changed the way I felt and my perspective on music. Not forgetting that my teen angst got liberated too.

A song from your favourite album?
'How to Disappear Completely' by Radiohead from their album 'Kid A'. This song is one of the most beautifully written pieces of music to date in my opinion.

Best song to turn up loud?
'A Day In The Life' by The Beatles. The composition and complex sound of this song when it is turned up loud always left me in rhapsody. Not just another day in life I guess.

What new music are you listening to?
Recently I discovered Emily King. The song 'Georgia' just stuck in my head.

What are you working on at the moment?
I'm currently working on my own music and expanding my businesses.

'Dark Spring' by Beach House.
What an intro to an album. Thunderous drums fill and settle into a steady bass drone with layered vocals. A phenomenal album I must say.

'Tayang Sulit' by KILLEUR CALCULATEUR.
A truly remarkable listening experience. The chemistry between them is on another level. This is the definition of punk poetry.

'Kids See Ghosts' by KID SEE GHOSTS, Yasiin Bey.
The calmness of this song and how the lyrics just flow with it. Kinda creepy but good kind of creepy. Effortlessly great.

'Something To Remember Me By' by The Horrors.
It's very vibrant and euphoric in tone. A Brooding piece of electronic-fuelled songwriting with a dark delicious disco twist.

'Loud Places' by Jamie XX, Romy.
Like a lullaby someone sang to you when you were young. The type of song designed to arrest your mind and put you under.

'Touch' vt Daft Punk, Paul Williams.
'Touch' is a pretty good test of how much tolerance you'll have for the entire of Random Access Memories. It is undoubtedly the most ambitious thing to be found on Daft Punk's third album. IT'S A MASTERPIECE!

'New Light' by John Mayer.
This track oozes upbeat summer bop vibes whilst maintaining that classic Mayer groove. Perfect feel good song.

'The Rip' by Portishead.
Beth Gibbons voice layered with the acoustic guitar at the start of the song and how it evolved into something so hauntingly beautiful. Definitely their best record, there's no doubt about that.

'Violent Crimes' by Kanye West.
This track provides a blissful climax to a brave and compelling album that's full of pleasant surprise. Pure love.

'Gelora Asmara' by Groove Bandit.
This song always reminds me of my good old days and the beat never gets old. 2018 and I still listen to it.

'Present Tense' by Radiohead.
The dreamy intensity and sweetness of this song crafted a trance-like melody that makes me lost in something so beautiful and precious, it makes me forget about the mundanities of life.

'Unravel' by Bjork.
I was one of the lucky one to witness her perform live on stage recently. Oh God, the wonders of that voice. She speaks, she chants, she howls, she snarls, she screams, and she travels effortlessly and purposefully from one mode to the next. Art at it's finest. Homogenic is one the best album of all time.
