Bo (Bo Amir Iqram in full), or in this article’s sense, in his moniker, Bedroom Sanctuary (he goes by a lot of other names such as Mr. Fluff, Cosmicspacemunkys, and also plays in bands such as Seven and That Band) has a nice, deep voice for jiwang songs. I first heard his song “Pulanglah” in a Coffee Mate commercial video last year (more on that later) and loved the song feature eversince. So naturally, when I had the opportunity to review his sophomore release titled I Can’t Draw So I Sing, I jumped at the chance.

My (Malaysia)” captures the essence of life in Klang Valley with a mention of SS2 (for food). The language used in this song is more simplified with hints of our local accent. “Shorty 2” is an interesting one. The introduction is just two lines and from then it is taken over by a cute carnival-like mix. The song is probably named “Shorty” because it is just a little over a minute’s length. “Hapus” is a little funky. It sounds like there’s a secret upbeat track after the first slow mellow melody part.
