” State of Rock …showcases the originality and creativity of 30 Singapore-based independent artistes where their vocal prowess effortlessly complements their instrumental beats.” – Press Release
Music reviews have been positive:
“There has been a surprising rise in high-quality local music in recent years and record label S2S has taken good advantage of this phenomenon, which has proven our country’s own promising talent in the arts.” – Spin or Bin Music
“… we’re certainly happy with the current output of releases” – Bandwagon
“…the result is State of Rock, a compilation of local music celebrating all Singapore music has to offer, and boy does it look promising….There is something for fans of any and all genres of music.” – moshinmag.sg
“IF anybody needs proof that the local music scene is overflowing with talent, just listen to State of Rock, a double-disc compilation featuring a mix of 30 veteran and upcoming homegrown indie acts.”- Business Times
Our favourite is from the moshinmag.sg review 🙂
“The compilation album closes with a selection of spaced-out, electronic ambient tracks by bands such as Giants Must Fall and Cosmic Armchair to show the new and innovative ways that music could be made.”
Many thanks to top Singapore pop and rock writer and music curator Kevin Mathews for inviting us to be part of this compilation.
