With the doors to the Hood Bar and Cafe situated at Bugis+ open for the duration of the launch, Natalie Hiong’s sweet but bright voice could be heard at least five metres away from the Cafe, drawing curious glances from passers-by, a few of which walked right into the Cafe to enjoy the rest of the performance.
Everyone has their own experiences navigating through the plethora of bands with creative band names that we are bombarded with today. What no one would expect is a band that takes on the name of a seemingly fictional character – Sam Willows.
Everyone has that phase where he or she was really into a boy band for a period of time, which slowly dies off when the band stops producing more songs. Mine happened to be the Jonas Brothers, and although I refused to admit it or even show a slight interest in them in front of my friends, I’d always be searching them up on Youtube to hear Love Bug or SOS in secret.
For the sake of humanity, The Sam Willows should be banned from making covers.
I exaggerate, but one must never let The Sam Willows’ extremely pleasing covers outshine their stellar original material.
T’was a Friday night like any other, well except the fact that this Friday night was going to be filled with pop punk goodness at TAB. The Linch Agency was responsible for bringing The Wonder Years, a six-piece pop punk band from Pennsylvania down to Singapore for a show and for that, we thank them.
