DREAM ACADEMY SCHOLAR BUNNY RETURNS AS ULTIMATE GLAM PLUNK, POP ROCK QUEEN
Her innate flamboyance and sexiness, not to mention her rockstar attitude in her performances, made Bunny Malunda stand out as her own self in ABS-CBN’s hit reality search ”Pinoy Dream Academy” two years ago. Now, she returns still being herself as the country’s ultimate glam punk, pop rock artist.
With self-titled album, Bunny fabulously combines the grainy rock and hippie pop genres in one sexy music collection that men must check out. Its tracks are also inspired by Bunny’s “independence and personal strength.”
“The songs talk about me and the various stages of my life. The lyrics of my carrier single FYI really happened to me. Before I met Chivas [her real life sweetheart], I was not really looking for a guy. I was content with my family, friends and school. I guess love really finds you when you’re least expecting it-not when you’re actively looking for it. “We all go through a phase when we are just happy with what we have,”. Bunny shared.
This fascinating artist was actually discovered by top European/American producers Jay Muller and Ben Patton through Youtube. It was Bunny’s uploaded PDA performance that enthralled these producer’s venture into an exciting glam rock project.
“We did’nt package Bunny at all, that’s just how she is. She is a born rock-star with her own real-life sexiness and attitude, and at the same time she’s funny and sweet. We just tried to write the song’s that represent the way she really is. That’s the album concept which is also an introduction to Bunny,” said Muller.
Producers Muller and Patton also believe that Bunny is like no other in the country who can be both “gritty and glamorous” at the same time. “In the Philippines, usually, the rock bands are gritty and the pop singers are glamorous. But Bunny is both,” they added.
Featured in Bunny’s album is an amazing duet with her real-life sweetheart Chivas Malunda entitled ‘Mad lover.’ Unlike the traditional attack to cheesy love songs, which is often mellow and sweet, the song depicts a story of lovers, who are both wild and crazy.
“We wanted to write a duet for Bunny and Chivas, But they are both rockers and so we knew it couldn’t be a cheesy old fashioned love song. Instead, we wrote ‘Mad lover,’ the producer said.
The songs are by Muller and Patonwhile the lyrics are from Ben Patton. They have been behind two of KC Concepcion’s songs including her carrier esingle “Not like the Movies” and “After the End.” They also did Nikki Gil’s “Last Love” and the entire album of Kelsey Adams from Cebu.
“What I Meant” is my favorite album among the tracks of my album. I could actually relate well with it because whenever I fall in love, I’m always in denial and afraid of opening up. So, I would say I show and verbalized the opposite of how I really feel,” Bunny revealed.
Now that Bunny really does well in her singing career, she would like to venture on other endeavors such as acting and modeling. “As a singer, I know I can act too, as I always internalize and give life to each song I perform. As you can see, I enjoye dressing up and fixing myself ,so I’d like to get into modeling too. But I owe all these to my talent in music. I will not be discovered by Jaye if not for Pinoy Dream Academy.”
‘Bunny”, which is officially manufactured and distributed by Polyeast Records is now available in leading record bars nationwide. For more information, log on to facebook.com/bunnymalunda.
