Since the beginning, we’ve been reviewing music on Hear65 every week, and now we'd like to break away from this tradition and pass the baton over to you - the listeners of Singapore’s music. If you've ever been itching to share your thoughts about a new track release, or simply want to introduce good earworms to more listeners, then read on.
For the uninitiated, the Hear65 website has a Review Function to help visitors discover and gain greater insight into the music in Singapore. Good music should always be shared, and we are inviting contributions from friends and fans of our homegrown artists.
Every two weeks, the Hear65 team will select 6-8 reviews every two weeks to publish in a Review Round Up article. Just check out the latest releases and submit your review for a chance to be featured.
Here’s what readers have to say this week:
Kyle, 90/100: I love the feel-good vibes of this song - they make me feel like waving my arms in the air. Islandeer's slowly becoming one of my favourite bands here!
Linus Ryan Phoon, 100/100: Another great piece by Alyssa! Hearing this song gives a sense of warmth and it tugs on our hearts. The lyrics are well-written and the vocals were really soothing. This song should definitely be heard by many! Keep doing what you do Alyssa!
Carey Lai, 100/100: The melancholic rift of 'Postheaven Depression' makes me feel nostalgic about an experience I never had. Wasn't big into the local music scene but I started paying more attention ever since chancing upon songs like this.
Narelle, 98/100: Such meaningful lyrics and the melody has been ringing in my head non-stop! I love it!
Ted Moss, 100/100: HALAN's latest release 'A Waste' sounds like a track you'd hear in a movie trailer or in the opening of a TV show where the protagonist is out by themselves in the city, late at night. It creates a strong ambiance and atmosphere, complemented by the mournful lyrics and emotional singing. I love the bass beat that persists throughout the song, and HALAN's clear, shimmery vocals provide a satisfying juxtaposition. The lyrics are poetic, especially the outro which repeats the same words four times, with increasing intensity and ending on a climax. This is a song I'd vibe with on a dark day.
