We’ve Got A Christmas Single

Almost forgot to mention this one, we’ve got our first Christmas song! It’s for a compilation CD that going to be on sale at all Starbucks and some other selected stores in Singapore during Christmas season. It’s a stellar line-up of local indie musicians. I think except for one tune, they are all originals. We almost went with a cover of I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus. Thankfully, we couldn’t seem to get it right, so quickly a new song was cobbled together: written, rehearsed and recorded in one week.

It’s recorded at Thom’s Loft, which is a newly created studio space by Alan Bok (Interlude). Obedient Wives Club and Sapporo Safaris, among others, have also recorded material at this very cozy shophouse unit on Arab Street. Alan himself does the recording. Patrick Chng mixes. (Reunited!) Jason Tan does the mastering.

1. Give Me Love On Xmas Day – The Lilac Saints & Friends

2. Dear Santa – The Ukulele Girls

The Rare Disorders Society (Singapore) is a non-profit organisation set up in 2011 by parents of children diagnosed with rare diseases to raise awareness for rare disorders.

  1. Might I also suggest releasing it on BandCamp for those who might be international and interested in hearing/buying this?
