As we have frequently observed, it’s difficult to find proper melodic rock bands in the current Singapore music scene. But if you know where to look, you will discover that a S-ROCK underground exists, where bands like Gilded Edge do what they do best – make authentic rock ‘n’ roll.
The quartet consist of Alan Francis (Vocals, Guitar), Melvin Lim (Guitar), Afiq Yusof (Bass) and Julian Stewart (Drums) and after two years of existence have released their debut single, “Lone Wolf”.
With a definite nod to 90s British alt-rock, clear influences of Oasis, Teenage Fanclub & Stereophonics can be found in the single, along with a memorable tune and a positive message (albeit a little awkwardly delivered lyrically).
A promising start! Look forward to more from Gilded Edge.
… still there’s more …
