Get to know Your Local Artists

How many songs have you actually heard local bands played? Be honest.



You’ve only ever heard of One Buck Short but never seen them played?

Haha. I am going to change all that.

Firstly, you do know we Malaysians sometimes do have the quirkiest names for a band. Take this band for example, they call themselves Sugar Love Cookies.

Haha! Four grown up men singing sweet funky songs and they call themselves Sugar Love Cookies. Classic.

Channelx has this Call Me tones downloads which you can download songs from various local bands for a small fee. (link:

super love cookies

Go to the site and preview listen to “When I Got U” by the band. It’s uber funky and a very super rhythmic tone to it!

Some of the songs downloadable here aren’t expensive, considering how much you pay for your songs downloaded from itunes or original songs form CD. You can listen to the preview before you make any purchase.

I like “Oh My Love” by Awan Band, and it’s only RM3.50.


You know, the mushy romantic type of music.
My kind of music.

Though band appearance wise, I much prefer the rock star look O-Two Band.


The lead singer especially, has this really awesome Japanese style outlook that’s remarkably striking. He’s definitely a big hit among the girls.


Their songs are quite the beat too. It’s refreshing to know that so many local songs and artists are getting up to par with the modern music industry. One particular song of theirs I took a decent fancy to is the “Naluri Perintis Cinta” by O-Two Band, priced at RM4 per download.

If you prefer English songs, there’s also this Curve by Silvergun Superman (cool name too) I’m considering downloading the whole song to set as my Call Me Tones.
