Nurul Afiqah is a singer, frontwoman and one half of Pastel Lite, an electronic synthpop band. For the past five years, she has been fronting the band, producing music that she hopes would connect with people.
Juggling a full-time career as an audio engineer and carrying the weight of the band – from the creative process to the production aspect, even right down to carrying her own equipment – undeniably can weigh a person down, but for Nurul Afiqah, it’s all part and parcel of her passion.
“It’s pretty nerve-wrecking when everything falls on your shoulder, but I choose to focus more on the moments when the music we produce is exactly like how we envisioned it to be. Making that piece of music come to live is a sweet victory.”
