Gambar Band Hujan (Raingers)








Hujan ialah nama yang dipilih oleh sebuah kumpulan indie ditubuhkan pada awal 2006 dan bertapak di Malaysia. Kumpulan muzik ini lebih suka melabelkan genre yang mereka bawakan sebagai rock alternatif dan lebih cenderung mendendangkan lagu di dalam bahasa Malaysia. Lagu yang boleh dikatakan telah menaikkan nama mereka adalah lagu "Pagi Yang Gelap". Populariti kumpulan ini semakin meningkat setelah single kedua, "Bila Aku Sudah Tiada" mula dimainkan di stesen-stesen radio tempatan, dan mengulangi kejayaan single pertama mereka. Antara artis-artis yang dinyatakan sebagai pengaruh dan ilham kepada mereka ialah The Strokes dan Butterfingers.

Hujan is, by far, Malaysia’s most popular indie band. Started out with the humbling beginning of performing at underground gigs around Malaysia since its inception in 2005, Hujan considered itself as the ultimate alternative band that enjoy singing in the Malay language. In 2008, Hujan began its embarkation in the mainstream popular culture when two of its singles, “Pagi Yang Gelap” and “Bila Aku Sudah Tiada” received massive airplay and numerous requests at the mainstream radio stations, thus exposing its talent to general Malaysians. At the same time, Hujan started to tour the United Kingdom thanks to the demands by Malaysian students who were studying at the aforementioned country. For the record, Hujan is the only band in Malaysia to have released 8 popular singles in a year! More than 100, 000 fans followed them over at MySpace, while their recorded performances uploaded at the infamous YouTube website have received more than 2 million viewers…and counting. So far, Hujan had successfully won 2 trophies at our very own AIM Awards, for Best Rock Album and Best Rock Song for “Bila Aku Sudah Tiada”.
