There has been a burst of new independent R&B and hip-hop acts coming out from the Hoax Vision collective in Malaysia and Zsyia is one that caught our attention the most for her boldness.
The cool 17-year-old has been busy releasing new materials with her fellow label mates the past couple of months, including the amazing cover of “So High” by Doja Cat.
Having that said, this tune “Lost//Home” has to be the highlight that really introduced us to who Izzah Batrisyia a.k.a Zsyia is. She got that uniquely haunting vocals that brings this Fariz Malik aka f r s-produced tune to the next level that got us feeling that neo-soul vibe again.
This single has just received a video treatment by the first year students of Cinematic Arts Programme at MMU Multimedia University (MMU).
Directed by Amzar Hafizi, it’s a pretty straight-forward and simple video concept of ZSYIA performing the single at back alleys to the beach, with some spoken word materials about her idea of “home” at the beginning and end of the clip.
