The experimental duo’s UK and Ireland tour will follow Senyawa’s appearance at the upcoming Joyland festival in Bali, Indonesia between March 25 and 27.

The duo also recently received a nomination at the BandLAB NME Awards 2022 for Best Asian band, which ultimately went to Ben&Ben.

In December, Senyawa’s album ‘Alkisah’ clinched the10th spot in NME’s list of the 25 best Asian albums of 2021. NME writer Ng Su Ann described the album as a “nightmarish soundscape punctuated by cataclysmic strings, clattering percussion and seething waves of distortion.”

‘Alkisah’, which launched in February 2021, was also released by 36 independent record labels across the globe and received at least two remix albums.

In November, the duo launched their new streaming app, Senyawa Mandiri, a self-made up featuring tracks from their latest album ‘Membaladakan Keselamatan’ (‘Ballads For The Survivors’).
