Haneri

From new monikers to new homes, the verve that comes with radical change flows through the career of the pop singer-songwriter. Formerly promoted under her real name, Daphne Khoo, the reinvented Haneri – the Hawaiian translation of her Chinese name – embodies newfound confidence since moving from Singapore to Los Angeles. Haneri has won hearts through her solo route that’s delved into funk and synth-pop, while collaborating with global dance music phenoms like Paul Van Dyk and Dash Berlin.

Start Again

Year of Release: 2022
“I was not the same person that I was at the start,” Haneri comes clean in a crystalline strummer that tugs at the heartstrings. Reminiscing about her 10-year sojourn in America, the song is a cinematic sweep of highs and lows of adulthood: her studying music, falling in love, and finally leaving at the start of 2020 once the pandemic hit. The first single from her forthcoming album The Haneri Experience, it also marks the first collaboration between Haneri and producer-songwriter Josh Wei.

Milliona

Year of Release: 2020
A zestful validation of her newly minted alias, MILLIONA is a nod to Haneri’s name in Chinese, meaning “a hundred million”. This ebullient EP is fuelled by the nostalgia of yesteryear. Old-school funk is sunk deep into these four tracks, filled with bass slaps, wah-wah guitars, and Moog–synths. Touching on freedom, catharsis and independence, she lifts the heaviness with signature syrupy tones.

Real love

Year of Release: 2018
Haneri’s jolly pop song puts a twist on the evergreen trope of romance; a declaration of sweet nothings dedicated to her pooch. It’s complemented with a blissful arrangement, with its offbeat reggae guitars and laidback tempo.

Feel alright (Acoustic)

Year of Release: 2018
Haneri takes a matter close to her heart – the optimism of moving to Los Angeles, and makes it even more intimate. Accompanied by a guitar, the nuanced delivery shines through: every hushed syllable, every trill, and every vibrato fade-off is crystal clear, just like her conviction.

Feel alright

Year of Release: 2018
Moving to a foreign land can be arduous, but it won’t topple Haneri off her throne of positivity. Her single is a love letter to Los Angeles, taking comfort in the optimism of opportunity, as she bobs amid idyllic, electronic hues.

Burning up

Year of Release: 2017
Coming off the throes of a toxic relationship, the pop singer unleashes a fireball to launch her new stage name Haneri (FKA Daphne Khoo). Stoking the embers is a colossal 1980s synth-pop arrangement that advances with lavish chords and echoing beats.
