Best Malaysian Indie Bands


The Top Ten

1 Bunkface

Great stage performance

Bunkface always give me positive vibes argh the best band ever!

Their music are awesome.. Every time I played their songs, they gave me spirits.

I believe that BUNKFACE will be the best band in Asia... I love you bunkface

2 Hujan

I only recently discovered the band through friends and I was pleasantly surprised and delighted with the talent. Totally under rated, if you ask me.

Their music is so good!

Raingers riot squad

The best band in my life

3 Bittersweet

Bittersweet can get in top 5.. Come on guys.. Disagree is suck.. Hujan deserve at number 1 because they have a really good guitarist (ag coco).. The time also didn't cool at all..

BIttersweet's sound is kind of unique

Bittersweet never die

Best song, a good band

4 Azlan & The Typewriter

There the best ever...

5 Butterfingers

Butterfingers is simply underrated and unfortunately didn't quite receive the acclamation that the band deserve. Butterfingers is certainly not a one-hit-wonder kinda band. The band has transcended in terms of musical quality of what was available in the local underground scene. It's a privilege to have listened to butter music.

Weird to NOT see this band in the top 5. Full of originality, multi-genres, on of the earliest (first perhaps? ) english-singing indie band to be popular!

Its 2015 but this band is really a different from the others for me,

Butterfinger is Malaysia version of Nirvana! The Best!


Malaysian Oasis! No. 1 for me


LEGEND! This band is in the different class.. Can't compare them.. Butterfingers also.. Living legend.. Their music are really inspired.. Come on

Simply the best. oldie but goldie

7 One Buck Short

Band mantap

8 The Azenders

The band vocalist is sam bunkface... The band is awesome

Great band..Wonderful music in Ladies and Gentleman

9 The Times

My biggest idol of Malaysia indie music, the reason I'm started to form a band. They have own unique sound n style that diffentiate them from typical band in Malaysia..

They are basically an OAG in another form and direction (all are ex members of OAG). They music are ahead of time and can be revolutionary band in Malaysian scene if not for their internal problem and conflict with the label.

My number one favorite band in Malaysia. They music has big influence in my life. The reason I started to make band.. Long Live The Times!

Nice form of music, the lyrics are simple so as the music..
