Good Will Hunting

“In our amazing era of digital immediacy, I can tell the world where I am and what I’m doing while I’m doing it. I can present myself as a busy man living a rich and full life. I can take pictures of my meals, log my locations, snap photos of the people I’m with, and weigh in on what’s happening around the globe 140 characters at a time. But none of these things mean I’ve been paying attention.”

Food For The Soul

‘Everyone deserves something special’ – This statement becomes bolder and louder when it comes to weekends. Most of us have been working hard on weekdays, be it in school or at work, and we ought to give ourselves credit for that.

So take a moment now (just 2min 45sec) and bask yourself in the brilliance of this tune.

Close your eyes, dim the lights, sit back and enjoy.

CHAINED

I watched you breathe in
And I wished you’d stop
Only for long enough
Long enough

It’s
Hard
To
Say

Separate or combine
I ask you
One last time
Did I hold you too tight
Did I not let enough light in

Oooh-oooh-oooh
Oooh-oooh-oooh
Oooh-oooh-oooh
Oooh-oooh-oooh

If a feeling appears
If your mind should sway
It’s not a secret you should keep
I won’t let you slip away

We used to be closer than this
We used to be closer than this
We used to get closer than this
Is it something you miss

We used to be closer than this
We used to be closer than this
We used to get closer than this
Is it something you miss

Winged or chained
I ask you
Would you have stayed
Did I hold you too tight
Did I not let enough light in

Oooh-oooh-oooh
Oooh-oooh-oooh
Oooh-oooh-oooh
Oooh-oooh-oooh

Music Video: Two Door Cinema Club – Sleep Alone

Two Door Cinema Club are back (and better) with their new music video ‘Sleep Alone’ – Upbeat, funky, and with a tune that you’ll wanna groove to. This explains why they get so much love.

Remember to keep a lookout for their soon-to-be-released album ‘Beacon’.

You can preorder ‘Beacon’ now.

Obedient Wives Club

‘Obedient Wives Club’, as its name suggests, is definitely not a club that teaches wives to be obedient, or anything close. Quit guessing already as you might never get it right, so allow me to give you hints. There are five members in the ‘club’, their weapon of choice are guitars, drums, microphones, and sometimes keyboards. You get it now? Good.

They have been creating waves in the Singapore music scene with their fuzzed out sound ever since it was started out in September 2011 by Keith Tan (Guitarist), who later brought in YinQi Lee as the band’s vocalist. You’ll be enchanted by her singing, just like many other happy victims who went to their gigs. The band was completed by Sulaiman Supian (Bassist), Lennat Mak (Drummer), and Cherie Ko the second guitarist.

Keith has an addiction to the likes of Best Coast, Dum Dum Girls, Frankie Rose and The Outs, and it’s no wonder ‘Obedient Wives Club’ adopted lo-fi Spectorgaze as their music DNA. Have a listen at them, let the music enters your ears, flows through your body, and stirs up your emotions. It’s nutrition for your soul.

And did I mention they have a mission? That is “to bring fuzzed out girl group indie pop that is missing from the Singapore indie scene.” I say mission accomplished! Toast to that!

My Virgin Entry

It’ll be rude of me to not acknowledge anyone who’s reading this right now so, “Hi! How are you?”

Anyway, many of you (Who am I kidding? Probably less than a handful) might be wondering what is blog about? Well, I can tell you this is going to be my virtual voice, and I’ll be writing pretty much about anything and everything – whatever comes to my mind. My idea of blogging is similar to that of photography but instead of capturing those moments I want to preserve, I write.

In case you haven’t heard…
