First formed in Nanyang Polytechnic, the Singaporean alternative pop band has created some buzz for themselves by being different. The Facade has a new EP called Vanity, which explores the concept of coming of age, rebellion, pains and wonders of growing. The Facade consists of 3 different members - Brendon Chua (lead vocals, guitar), Jereld Ang (vocals, lead guitar), and Shawn Chan (drums, percussion). Get ready to be enthralled by their vocals and beats when listening to their songs ‘White’ and ‘Victim’.
You can probably recognise his voice when you recall the 2018 version of We Are Singapore. NDP singer-songwriter, Charlie Lim, has made a name for himself as a multi-talented singer in the local music scene. Once a shy choir boy who grew up in the East, he now performs internationally and has an album called ‘Check-Hook’ which is available internationally. With an androgynous voice, his songs will captivate anyone.
What started out as a school project turned into a career. Inspired by the shoegaze bands of the ‘80s and ‘90s such as Lush and Slowdive, Cosmic Child comprises of Bo (vox/guitar), Daniel (guitars), Joanne (bass/vox), Zhe Ren (synths) and Genevieve (drums). This high spirited five-member band will take you on a cruise with their dreamy and melancholic vocals. Their sophomore album ‘Blue’ is a testament to that. You can catch them performing live in Tokyo and Osaka this June!
