True to the temu house spirit, collaborations happen at almost every second and this one happened with Nadirah Zakariya's exhibition; Feeling Feelings Makes Me, Me.

Our beloved Nadirah so very casually invited these awesome sisters to hold a performance at temu house before her exhibition ends.

And here we are.

Come by temu house on the 27th May 2023, Saturday to catch The Impatient Sister do a short set at 2pm. Donations towards the performance are welcomed.

The Impatient Sisters

Soraya, Nazeera and Irena grew up in close-knit family. Originally raised in KL, the family moved to their seaside home in Kuantan in 2005. Music was something they enjoyed separately but after opening for their friend’s band for fun in 2011 they felt a sense of musical kinship and started writing original songs influenced by their muses, Eisley, Priscilla Ahn and Fleet Foxes which they had the opportunity to open for in 2018. Their songs, often fantastical and mostly of the sea, blend quirky soul and folk-pop. These songs then became part of their 10 song self-titled album released in 2014. Distinctly characterized by haunting harmonies, eclectic arrangements of guitar, xylophone and the kazoo, The Impatient Sisters became active in the indie music circuit and booked many festivals in Malaysia and Singapore.

After an EP and a few singles, the girls returned with another full album entitled ‘7 Years’ released in 2022. A full length album consisting of 13 new tracks, ‘7 Years’ still has the band’s warm sentiments of indie-folk but with a wider soundscape woven into a musical experience — intimate and relatable.
