Malaysian artist Mardiana returns with a new song, Don’t Cry For Me, which brings together EDM, R&B, pop-rock. It’s a thrilling follow-up to her prior releases: Delusional and Please Just Stay In Love.

This new luxuriant single has tons of impressive sounds and a beautiful voice line. This has such a space-like feel and it’s so uplifting and motivating. Mardiana gives us once again her seductive music that combines her thoughtful and sentient lyrics with a beautiful melodic alt-pop synthwave sound.

Mardiana said about Don’t Cry For Me: “It’s about entering a different phase in your life, where it’s the turning point of stepping into something that’s bigger than yourself. For me, the lyrics are about pursuing my dreams, not letting anything hold me back, and also telling my loved ones to not worry for me, hence the lyrics, “the world awaits, I’m on my way, please don’t cry for me”. It’s also knowing that not everyone will understand my decisions, and I’m okay with that.

She put together her new song using portions of another song, called Stuck In The Future, included in her exciting new album that’s out now.

Mardiana is definitely someone you should keep an eye on this year.
