THE STORY OF EVA ON THE WESTERN CASTLE ISLAND
Once upon a time there was a young Malaysian girl called Eva. Eva lived in the city of Johor Bahru with her mother and little sister. Just like all Malaysian girls she was spending her days in karaoke booths, huge shopping malls and night markets. Beside her ordinary life she also happened to be a pop star. A pop star who was performing for thousands of people while touring around the country.
At some point Eva got sick of the plastic doll-like image she was forced into. Eva was miserable. Eventually she decided to leave her old life and move up north to the great green forests of Finland. In this barbaric country she then met three weird but friendly fellows who were playing music to survive the cold and dark winter. The music these strangers were playing was extremely exotic for a girl used to the disco-bum-bum-dance-hall stuff played back home. Despite the ridiculous band name “Western Castle Island” (later on she would learn that there (maybe) was some sense in it…) Eva got positive vibes from these guys and found herself in no time behind the microphone being part of a sweaty jam session. These weird fellows were astonished by her unique voice and were begging her to join the gang. This definitely was the singer they had been searching for ages! Eva joined the forces and Eva on the Western Castle Island was born.
The story has just started and only the future can tell how the adventure continues.
