Pastel Lite

Pastel Lite, Band

Pastel Lite

Tonight we had the eclectic KL-based synthpop duo, Pastel Lite! Consisting of Eff Hakim and Mohd Faliq, these two been making waves since getting in the music scene in 2012. After a ton of tours and big stage appearances, we catch up on how these two been doing.


Eff is a 23 year old from Sabah while Faliq’s 26 and his hometown is in Johor. The story goes that these two met on Facebook after quitting their previous bands. Eff always wanted to do the singer-songwriter role but was told she didn’t had the set of skills for it. A mutual friend introduced her to Faliq; one jamming session later, Pastel Lite was born.


Though having not met each other before; both Eff and Faliq studied at the same audio engineering course at OCEAN Audio School in Damansara. Eff came from a hardcore background (thanks to her metal friends) while Faliq loves rock. Pastel Lite is a huge departure from their usual style.


Pastel Lite was initially a temporary name after their first track, Heart Drum. But after a few songs were completed, the duo realised it was irrelevant for them to change. Pastel Lite have performed for Urbanscapes every year, Goodvibes as well; and by January 2015 they released their first EP titled Etcetera.


It wasn’t long before they were called up to perform for Laneway Festival 2015 in Singapore. Having toured Sarawak in May, they’re heading off to Chongqing, China for a three day tour there.


For the record, Pastel Lite scored 16!
