Upfront Arena have announced that Pastel Lite will be the supporting act for The xx’s inaugural show in Malaysia this month.
The Malaysian synth-pop duo, who completely burst into the local music scene last year, will open for the popular British indie band at the Malaysian International Trading Centre (MITEC) on the 25th of January.
This marks a huge feat for Pastel Lite as it comes in the aftermath of their incredible first full-length album, Balada, which was released in July last year. Featuring 10 tracks, the album features central theme of human fragility that goes exceptionally well with their mellow undertones.
The entire album is available on Spotify and their hit track from the album, Damsel, has already been played over 13,000 thousands time on the music-streaming platform. They also have an average monthly listeners of about 2,384 people.
Having said that, this isn’t Pastel Lite’s first supporting role, given that they’ve previously opened for Fazerdaze and Tame Impala when both acts performed in Malaysia. They also performed at the Laneway Festival in Singapore back in 2015.
Meanwhile, tickets for The xx’s gig in Malaysia is still available for purchase but according to sources within The Upfront Arena and Ticketpro, they are running out quickly! So get yours as soon as possible on www.ticketpro.com.my!
