Interview with Disco Hue: The Dance Floor Never Dies

Before you do anything, plug your earphones in and listen to this (you’ll be doing yourself a favour). If you haven’t already heard Disco Hue’s first single, you’re sorely missing out. Insistent yet compelling, their glittering melodies pull you in and leave you hitting the replay button over and over. Gotta Find You, for one, feels like the classic ‘80s synthpop of Pet Shop Boys with its steady hook, yet awash with experimental undertones (read: Chvrches, Broods). There’s a fresh twist around every corner – maybe it’s Zie’s shimmering synths, or Sherlyn’s lithe vocals soaring in the chorus. We could go…

Interview with Scarlet Avenue: Achieving Dreams

10 years in the making, Scarlet Avenue has finally attained every musician’s goal: releasing their own album. The local duo’s first album, 2024, will land in March this year (psst, you can however, preorder it now on ITunes), 2 years after their first EP, Happy Heartbreak. With a tour under their belt and perhaps another soon, alongside numerous performances in schools and institutions, what lies ahead for the brothers? Scarlet Avenue answers some of our burning questions in an interview after they serenaded us during their cafe hop. 1. What did Scarlet Avenue do in 2015? Amos: Last year we *laughs*…

Interview With Dexter: Beauty from Pain

Now, everyone has their own way to deal with a breakup. We all mope, drowning in self-pity and tubs of ice cream. Some go onto social media and share depressing or incredibly sulky and angry posts, some stay in and play angst-filled music with a glass of wine, and some people channel their hurt into their craft, creating beauty from pain: Taylor Swift and Adele come to mind when it comes to making millions art from breakups. DANamic.ORG spoke to Dexter Choo, a new name in Singapore’s local music scene. We caught up with him as he rides on the release of…

Interview With midst: An Ambient Gem Among Us

With just 3 singles made available online, midst have been raising a delicate storm with their exquisite offerings. Combining the chordal sensibilities of a baroque choral piece with the introspection of painfully self-aware indie artists, the 3-piece band are blessedly releasing their first body of work in an EP – arriving 23rd January 2016. Their debut single, “Captivate” ,certainly captivated audiences (sorry, we couldn’t resist) here and abroad. Released just last September, the track has garnered over 5,000 plays on YouTube – a laudable feat for a fresh-faced local act. Across what we’ve heard so far, midst’s atmospheric, “yoga retreat soundtrack” vibe…

Charlie Lim’s Debut MV Takes on a Whole New Level, Literally

If we could name one local artist that is truly dedicated with their musical works, Charlie Lim pops up on our minds. The justification? We were lucky enough to catch an early screening of his highly anticipated music video for “I Only Tell the Truth” during his sold-out intimate show at Sing Jazz Club. Prior to the screening, Charlie revealed that he and his crew rented a full size airplane for the grueling 4 day shoot. That tease alone was enough to make our jaws drop and had us anxious to catch a glimpse of his new video while he…
