Inch Chua is back! And already new album Bumfuzzle promises to be one of THE releases of 2013 but before we get to that, Inch has issued the delightful “Artful Dodger” as her opening single. Here’s the press release from Riot! Records.
Inch Chua’s Indiegogo campaign supporters were the first to receive her new music. The Los Angeles-‐based Singaporean artist raised $15,510 on the crowd-‐funding site to finance the mixing and mastering of her highly anticipated follow-‐up to Wallflower. “The new album is very different from my last album and ‘Artful Dodger’ is a song on the album that I feel best bridges my old sound with my new musical direction,” confesses Chua. “The lyrics of my songs are birthed from catharsis. You could literally tear a page from my journal and you would get a song like ‘Artful Dodger.” The release of “Artful Dodger” marks a return to Chua’s indie rock roots, evident in the single’s massive drum and aggressive guitar sounds. “It was fun twisting and turning knobs on this song; there are some cool funky sounds in there.”
“Artful Dodger’s” lyrics and music were written by Inch Chua. The record was produced by Chua, Mark John Hariman and Leonard Soosay, and recorded at Snakeweed Studios, Singapore. Assistant Engineers included Hariman, Chua, Mindy Kon and Issa Mel. Mixing was handled by Todd Bergman at Repro-‐Ductions, and mastering conducted by Howie Weinberg at Howie Weinberg Mastering.

“Artful Dodger” is now available from iTunes.
