Singer-songwriter Ethel Yap’s eponymous debut EP is a joyous demonstration of mature songwriting.
The four tracks stand out as some of the best Singapore-made compositions this year. Refreshing in their commitment to traditional values of sophisticated chord structures, honest lyrics, memorable tunes and Ethel’s own lovely vocals.
Appropriately, her first single “Beautiful” provides an excellent description of the EP itself, with its understanding of textural and timbrel nuances. A wonder to behold.
Produced expertly by James Lye, this is the kind of Singapore music that we proudly champion. A return to the timeless values of writing and performing.
Catch Ethel launching her EP on 29 September (Friday), at Practice Space @ 54 Waterloo Street at either 7pm or 9.30pm.
