Fiji Blue at REX KL 24 November 2022
Symmetry Entertainment presents Fiji Blue Live in KL at REX KL this Thursday.
Dreamy and lush maestro Fiji Blue aka Trevor Dering will be making his Malaysian debut. The LA-based artist sets wistful lyrics to laid-back dance grooves, dubbing their sound "sad boy chill house." Mixing indie, R&B, and singer/songwriter influences, their self-released singles such as 2020's Butterflies have racked up millions of streams. A demo of a trap-influenced R&B song titled Indigo was uploaded to SoundCloud in 2018, and official singles Space Makes Me Sad, Numb, and Day by Day all appeared in 2020, gradually taking the Fiji Blue sound in a more house-influenced direction. Full-length debut I Loved You, What Happened? released this year.
With supportr on the night from Johnson. 7.30-10PM. RM129 (Advanced Tickets) / RM149 (Doors). https://fijiblue.ubertickets.my
