His Music Still Lives: Avicii’s First Posthumous Track ‘SOS’ is a Heart-Rending Call for Help

His Music Still Lives: Avicii’s First Posthumous Track ‘SOS’ is a Heart-Rending Call for Help

No one has forgotten how Avicii – one of the biggest names in the EDM scene – was found dead in Oman on April 20 2018, with his family later confirming that he had committed suicide. Almost exactly a year later, SOS – a track from the Swedish DJ’s posthumous album TIM – is taking the internet by storm. Avicii, whose real name is Tim Bergling, was close to finishing his new album when he passed away. Thankfully, music composers Albin Nedler and Kristoffer Fogelmark helped to complete and produce what may very well be his last album ever. His…
Electropop local musician Edson Charntor releases new party track ‘You’

Electropop local musician Edson Charntor releases new party track ‘You’

Aspiring pop musician Edson Charntor (real name Edson Chong), released his latest single ‘You’ last week (30 November). Charntor’s first single, ‘Freedom’, gained unexpected popularity on Spotify, sitting on 140,000 streams with 3,000 saves. While ‘Freedom’ reflected his desire to enjoy freedom before adult responsibilities set in, Charntor revealed that ‘You’ is the “banger” in his upcoming EP and has no deeper meaning beyond wanting to party with someone. ‘You’ has a catchy and repetitive beat, and the lyrics are not easily discernible amidst the background music. This could be intentional as Charntor explained that the mood of the song is…

Astronauts’ New Single: “Kryptonite” Hits You Right At The Heart

Astronauts’ New Single: “Kryptonite” Hits You Right At The Heart

Local indie band Astronauts, a five-piece quintet R&B/Soul band, just released their latest single – ‘Kryptonite’, and based on what I’ve heard from their previous songs like ‘I’m No Good’, they’ve certainly lived up to the lofty standards that they’ve set for themselves. A little reminiscent of Bruno Mars’ work, I was genuinely impressed by Ben Jacob Lee’s smooth sensual voice grooving through the beat; it made me want to move my feet and snap my fingers along to the rhythm. Being a fan of hip hop personally, I feel like a Kendrick Lamar or J Cole collaboration with Astronauts…
