Singapore pop artist Falling Feathers has officially unveiled his highly- anticipated EP titled 'Pipe Dreams'. The EP, which consists of two brand new songs, “Terrified” and “Weightless” was made available on all digital platforms at http://wmsg.lnk.to/ff-pipedreams on May 25, 2018. The accompanying music video of “Terrified” will also be premiering on Falling Feathers’ YouTube Channel on June 1, 2018. 'Pipe Dreams' marks Falling Feathers’ first ever EP release, following the release of his hit singles “Why So Serious” and “Hush”.
'Pipe Dreams' is produced by Falling Feathers with collaborators Edric Hwang (GRYD) and Thievves (Disco Hue). The five-track EP consists of a myriad of different sounds and spans different across genres from pop rock to electronic pop that conveys a wide blend of teen emotions.
“I often get asked why I decided to title the EP 'Pipe Dreams' and it’s super straightforward! A pipe dream is basically an unattainable dream or fantasy. Producing English music in Singapore and trying to make a career out of solely being an English pop artist in our country is essentially a pipe dream,” explains Falling Feathers.
“We are a very young country and the entertainment industry is still in its infancy. There is a lot more work that we need to put in in order to grow the industry steadily. A lot of
Singaporean musicians who make English music work very hard to develop their craft not only just for ourselves but in hopes of growing the industry. That way, future musicians may be able enter a scene that is filled with opportunities where being a full-time performing artist in Singapore may not a pipe dream after all.”
“Terrified” is the final single on 'Pipe Dreams' and its music video will be available on Falling Feathers’ official YouTube channel at http://smarturl.it/FeathersYouTube on June 1, 2018 at 12pm.
Says Falling Feathers:
“’Terrified’ is a song about the fears we face when we are trying to move on from something that mattered in our lives - be it a relationship, friendship, a job or even moving on the next phase of our lives. Though the lyrics for ‘Terrified’ were written based on an imaginary relationship, the emotions of the song depict how we can be very so terrified of the unknown that we chose to be stagnant in our emotional journey instead.”
Aside from producing his EP, Falling Feathers has also been busy performing at various locations in and out of Singapore. He embarked on his school tour last year going to numerous education institutions in Singapore to share his music as well as inspiring younger musicians to be part of the ever-growing music scene in Singapore. So far, Falling Feathers has been to Ngee Ann Polytechnic, Republic Polytechnic, Temasek Polytechnic, National University of Singapore, Ngee Ann Secondary, Regent Secondary, CHIJ Katong Convent, West Spring Secondary, Tech Whye Secondary, Raffles Girls School, West Wood Secondary, Hill Grove Secondary, Fu Hua Secondary and Zhong Hua Secondary, which also marked the end of the mini-tour in April 2018.
Even though the school tours have come to a fruitful end, Falling Feathers will still be visiting other secondary schools in Singapore as part of the Scape Invasion Tour 2018. In the coming months, Falling Feathers will also be putting up more performances in Singapore to promote his freshly released EP.
