Hujan: About

Hujan is a music phenomenon in the internet era. The band consists of Noh Salleh on vocals, Hang Dimas on keyboard, AG Coco on lead guitar and Acer on drums. In 2005, it was just Noh creating demos on Myspace, but thanks to the power of social networking, they had gathered a loyal fan base on the internet within a few months. Hujan formed as a band in 2006, and from then on, started to work on their first EP and touring across Malaysia.Hujan prefers to classify their music as alternative rock and have no qualms about delivering their material in Malay. They are influenced by a diverse range of bands which include the likes of The Strokes, Butterfingers, and even Pot Amir Radiostaq (ROSIN).Living and breathing the element they take their name after, their music alternates between the light, heavy and the torrential storm - a reflection of the many stories, moods and agendas embedded in their songs. They sing about everything from love, God, and family to the happenings of the world.The band has come a long way from performing at humble gigs and selling their EP (1,2,3 Go?) and first album (Hujan) themselves after each show to a UK tour and collaborating with Metadome Sdn. Bhd on the launch of their latest and second album - Mencari Konklusi.The 2007-2008 period marked their journey as the most successful indie band in Malaysia at that time with an England tour financed by their Malaysian student fan base there. Hujan then returned home to play a career-defining set at the inaugural Sunburst festival in Kuala Lumpur. Within one year, they had crossed over from indie college gigs to the mainstream media crowd.The band also won big at the Anugerah Industri Muzik (AIM 16) awards, bagging the prize for Best Rock Album (Hujan) and Best Rock Song (Bila Aku Sudah Tiada).With continued online support from the 'Raingers' - an affectionate term for their fans - Hujan continues to make waves at home and abroad.
