Charmaine Koh releases “Dreamin” Music Video

Behalf of Malaysian Songstress, Charmaine Koh, who released the official music video for her single “Dreamin’.” Paying homage to the Y2K era with its visuals, “Dreamin’” is about embracing any kind of uncertainty in your life; whether that’s moving to a new city, starting a new job, or breaking up with someone. For Charmaine, it was traveling to a new city and living in Seoul, Korea. “I was 17 at the time and it was overwhelming having to process  that. That was the culmination of dreaming and embracing what’s in front of you.”

About Charmaine :

Charmaine states; “I genuinely felt that “Dreamin’” was very coming of age, melodically and lyrically mainly because listening to it just made me feel ready to take on the world. I loved the concept of it as well – I could visually see it come to life so I actualised it into a music video with a Y2K retro futuristic aesthetic.”

“Dreamin’” is off Charmaine’s EP Sunflower at Sundown, and fits the overall theme of “change.” The seven tracks on this EP touch on many different aspects of change in one’s life. Be it a change of heart when it comes to love or a transition into a different stage in your life or even not wanting to let go of certain things, it fits under the same umbrella. Charmaine elaborates; “It also expresses how we, ourselves are the only ones that can control how we react to those changes. And that in turn will define who we are. Whether we choose to embrace things or resist them, that’s up for us to decide and whether we choose to wait for light amid the darkness, that too, is out there for the taking.”

Hailing from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Charmaine Koh strives to feature themes of youth and self-empowerment, while being an artist that boosts the voices and confidence of everyone around her. Performing was Charmaine’s first plunge into pursuing music around the age of 7. Her love for Camp Rock and High School Musical, paired with the hot pink toy piano that her parents gifted her, led Charmaine straight into singing lessons. One thing led to another; singing lessons led to recitals, recitals led to gigs, and gigs led to competitions. At just 12 years old, Charmaine represented her country in the 20th World Championships of Performing Arts (WCOPA). Winning ‘Champion of the World’ in two categories as well as bagging 3 gold medals, 1 silver, and 1 bronze piqued interest in record labels to which traversed to the launch of her debut single, “Ordinary Girl.” Now in 2022, many singles later sitting at over 1.5M streams across just Spotify and YouTube; Charmaine is ready to embrace this new era of coming into her own as she puts her special twist on the classic genres.
