Canvas Conversations is bound to start conversations with their creative and colourful music style. Much like a skilled artist painting across a canvas in many colours, the band explores and experiments with all types of sounds and textures under the electronic genre. The quartet consists of Bings, Jeff, Namie and Vick.

Previously the front man of ‘JJ and The Paperplanes’, JJ Ong, decided that it was not the end of his music career after the band disbanded in 2015. He rose back as a solo artiste, now calling himself Falling Feathers.

Self-proclaimed ‘music mercenary’, Evan Low, better known by his moniker, Evanturetime, proves this title is well-earned with his vast experience in Singapore’s music industry despite his young age. Having graduated from the prestigious Berklee College of Music, he received the opportunity to compose for renounced international brands such as Adidas, Toyota and Lego.

The words ‘dream’ and ‘angst’ aren’t often paired up, but one would be surprised to see (or hear, rather) how perfectly they go together after listening to the whimsical music of Subsonic Eye, accompanied by cryptic lyrics laced with distress.

Despite making their debut early on this year, mysterious dark noir pop duo TOMGIRL had their self-titled debut album claim the title of Best Album in Apple’s ‘Best of 2016 In Singapore’ list. When it was first released, it even ranked #1 on the iTunes charts. In addition, their lead single ‘Darker Now’ also premiered on Beats 1 Radio and MTV Asia.

Pop-rock band The Summer State has been rubbing shoulders with famous international acts since their infectious ballad, ‘I Do I Don’t’, shot up the charts in 2013. As of today, its music video has over 100,000 views on YouTube. Their recent single, ‘Enough’, is also doing well, with over 10,000 views on YouTube. The quintet consists of vocalist, Bryan, guitarists, Victoria and Shaykh, bassist, Edwin, and drummer, Ritz.

One woman band, bittymacbeth, is already rocking the stage with recognition from established local artistes such as Inch Chua, and featuring Dru Chen and Benjamin Kheng on her debut EP, ‘Beauty For Ashes’.

Although only have been formed just two years ago, Take Two is taking Singapore by storm. The Indie Pop four-member band consists of vocalist, Paddy, guitarist, Peng Sing, bassist, David, and drummer, Jeryl.

Formed in 2011, Disco Hue is one of the many rising Independent artistes/bands in Singapore. The electric pop band consists of four members, Sherlyn who does vocals and synths, Zie who does samples and synths, Billy who does drums and beats, and Rush who does guitar.
