Falling Feathers is back with his latest single titled Hush! The 21-year-old singer-songwriter who was the recipient of the 2016 Noise Mentorship is all geared up with new material for his EP which is set to be released early 2018. The local performer is a newly signed artist with Warner Music Singapore.
The release of Hush comes after the feature of Why So Serious on one of South Korean TVN’s popular variety show — Youn’s Kitchen. Hush explores the futuristic pop rhythms of the next generation of love songs. Falling Feathers is constantly playing around with the elements of disco and funk in his songwriting. As a Singapore Polytechnic alumni who majored in Music and Audio Technology, he is always mixing up the different elements of “basic” pop music and making it relatable to the masses. In line with that dream, he wrote Why So Serious during his National Service days, during which he had collaborated with his senior, Edric Hwang from GRYD.
