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:
Jakub Brecka, 100/100: "Dreebsby makes the seamless transition from Indie Pop/Rock to Indie Electronic/Disco Pop infused with disco beats and a Nile Roger's inspired guitar riff. The result is an absolute vibe that will keep you listening to "Last Night" on repeat at 2am on a lonely Friday night."
Izzati Kasmuri, 95/100: "A wonderful collaboration between two amazing singers who complement each other so well."
Amelia Amari, 88/100: "Rangga's consistent slew of tracks that hit the spot in exactly the right way continues to floor his listeners. Coupled with the rainy weather we have these days, I can't imagine a better song to stay in and just chill out to."
In Partnership with Esplanade’s Baybeats Budding Writers Programme
SILOWAV, 100/100: "Easing your mind with Don't Wanna Say's ultra-soft & chill vibes, NyaLi explores matters of the heart with her beautifully crafted melodies and lush, sultry vocals."
nour, 100/100: "First off, it embraced SATINA's powerful side effortlessly. Their voices melted perfectly into one another. Hairi's voice was just as amazing, taking the song to the next level."
Shaneeta Karapan, 90/100: "Dark, edgy, and smooth. "Vices" is definitely a song to add to your playlist and keep you company on a chill night."
Regine Teo, 100/100: "This song sounds so nostalgic that it's got me reminiscing memories I don't even have."
Anastasiya Foxx, 100/100: "Michael Noah’s version pays deference to both with close vocal harmonies and doubled lead vocals, clean twangy guitars and Rhodes presenting a modern meets retro "Beatles"-inspired vibe."
Rachel Q, 100/100: "This is a lovely and enchanting song -- Raizel's vocals are the right balance of lilting and textured at different points to lend this song a dulcet and lifting quality."
The Random Writer SG, 95/100: "With tasteful lyrics, Chameleon composes a clear and simple message questioning the need to conform oneself to other people's expectations and needs."
