Bio

Komang is Rosie Clynes, a Melbourne/Narrm based vocalist and producer, blending groove-based production with artistry influenced by her Balinese heritage to create vibrant electronic RnB described as ‘neo-soul with Balinese spirit’. With a sold-out first show at AsiaTOPA 2020 and joining the rosters of Crown Ruler, Komang now introduces her second single, 'Flex'.

Formally trained as an actor, Komang's flair for production started while working as a performer and writer in Jakarta’s contemporary theatre world. It was there that, entranced by the city’s jazz and hip hop community, she began learning to produce her own music, becoming a frequent collaborator with Jakarta’s own soul scene (Greybox, Ezra Kunze) before returning back to Narrm. With more music soon on the horizon, her multidisciplinary vision, ties to community and epic themes of longing and mythology make Komang one to watch for the immediate future.

I live, work and create on Wirundjuri land and would like to acknowledge and pay my respect to all elders past, present and emerging. I would like to acknowledge that sovereignty was never ceded. Always was, always will be Aboriginal land.

People try to be this effortlessly cool, and you just wake up and be that. I'm the kind of person that says "oopsy daisy" when I fall over so yeah... I'm taking notes Komang.

good luck to anyone who thinks they can listen to this song and not be helping out on backing vocals with the 'flexxx' parts. another stylish and oh so smart release from komang.

This feels euphoric and I feel like i'm transcending along the way. Really infectious and a huge pleasure to hear such beauty.
