Malaysian indie trio Margosa is hailed winner of Juara Anugerah Lagu Indie (#ALI2020). Its winning song ‘Penawar’ was performed alongside other twelve indie songs at Pentas Akhir at Spacerubix, Kuala Lumpur. And streamed LIVE at Kamar Seni Studio’s YouTube channel two days ago (October 3).

‘Penawar’ directly means antidote — is composed by Raja Nazrin Shah (SOG Production); lyrics by Fazleena Hishamuddin — was performed in a trance-like melody accompanied, at moments, with a melancholic violin. And beats Nusarasa’s ‘Mesra’ and Hizadin and Hasnul’s ‘Menunggu’.

Ten other finalists who performed at the finals include: Budak Nakal Hujung Simpang, Bihzhu, Teman Lelaki, Kapow, The Impatient Sisters, Servants, Crinkle Cut, Oceanlights, Heidimoru X Hasha Roslan, and Sekumpulan Orang Gila (SOG) ft. Shila Amzah.

Professional juries from Malaysia’s music industry selected to participate in the competition: Dato’ M.Nasir, AD Samad, Rudy Nastia, JD Wong (Pop Shuvit), Amir Jahari, Ham (Seven Collar T Shirt), Jennifer Thompson and Loy Ekzan.

According to Ahmed Faris Amir, CEO of Rakita, the competition aims to proof that indie music is no longer just a genre; it can also be enjoyed not only by the indie community, but by every one.

‘Penawar’ is released the first quarter of 2020 by record label SOG Production owned by twin brothers — Raja Nazrin Shah & Raja Nazmin Shah. Listen to the song below.

Lyrics

Rintik hujan yang menitis membasahi bumi
Tidak dapat mendinginkan
Hati yang menangisBukit-bakau yang terhakis memusnahkan isi
Seperti jiwa yang tandus dan laraDi mana penawarnya? Langit kelam yang kelabu
Menghiris kalbu
Seperti rasa yang terhapus
Pergi dan berlaluKu mohon agar mentari berikan cahaya
Terangi seluruh jiwaLepaskan rasa yang tak sempurna
Tak selamanya tanganku akan mendakap badanmu
Kau pergi tinggalkan semuaLepaskan semua
Lepaskan semuanyaTiap air yang mengalir
Dari rintik-rintik hujan
Bawaku bersama pergi
Agar bisa ku lupakanYakinkan diriku ini
Cinta takkan berpanjangan
Bawalah terbang tinggi
Tinggalkan semua kenangan
