Music

On the 5 February 2017, Radio Heatwave treated the public to eight hours of heavenly music thanks to its annual event, Originals Only Open Mike for Youths (OOOMY), in collaboration with OOOM Singapore. Acts such as Gareth Fernandez, Falling Feathers, and Disco Hue came down to the The Star Vista, enchanting the crowd with their strikingly different yet commonly breathtaking music styles.

In need of a break? Don’t fret! The groovy tracks (an adventurous and exceptional harmony of Bossa Nova and shoegaze) from band, Specific Islander, will definitely take you on a vacation, even if it is just for a while.

Despite citing “disappointment” as their main influence, emo/math rock band Forests does anything but disappoint. While the three-piece band, consisting of members Darell (bassist and vocalist), Adam (guitarist and vocalist) and Niki (drummer), might seem carefree and jovial through their fun and quirky social media posts, a different side of them is reflected in their music. The quartet released their first EP, “worst beach vacation ever, circa 1997”, in July 2015. The debut EP came with three songs, “who cares really”, “cirrus clouds” and “dakota”.

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.

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’.

Local band Take Two talk about how they began, their transformation, their music influences, their new EP, PAIRS, singles, Always Been Right Here, and In Your Arms, as well as their experiences with their new found fame as an indie and rock band.

Heidi There are two things essential in my life- my music and my morning coffee. One allows me to express my creativity and the other is basically the matter that runs through my veins. So just imagine the amount of excitement I had to suppress when I attended the Singapore Coffee Festival 2016. The festival […]

TIMO Sony has decided to push the boundaries of music portability with the Sony ZX2 High-Resolution Walkman. With a price tag of SGD1599, people might think you have to be a little daft to buy such a product, or do they? For starters, the Walkman looks brilliant. It has a sleek Aluminium Alloy body accompanied […]

Charlie Lim has just finished playing his opening piece on the piano. “Hey, how are you all doing? Anyone going for the Taylor Swift concert?”

Scarlet Avenue. What can I say. They melt my heart just like how the Jonas Brothers did. But there’s only two of them.
