Who are The Glad Stones?
They are an indie band based in Singapore who love making music with a feel-good vibe – “the kind you’d load into your mp3 player when you’re lazing by the beach under the hot tropical sun”.
They sound like The Beatles jamming with The Kooks and Fratellis. Here’s a few of their music videos to hear it for yourself:
The Glad Stones was formed in 2011, when two Singaporean singer-songwriters, Marcel Lee Pereira and Jaye Foo, met in 2010 while on separate musical journeys.Both of them have completely different styles: funky hip-hop versus soulful folk, but when they started making music, they loved it so much that they decided to team up.
They are done with their Singapore tour in March and will be on a Japan tour this month.
Btw, Marcel is a schoolmate and colleague of mine. His publicist sent me a copy of his CD for review and THREE AUTOGRAPHED COPIES OF “GYPSY IN THE CITY” TO GIVE AWAY!
I do not really know how to review music, but I find the songs all really easy on the ears and gives a light, lazy but happy feel. Pretty good stuff. Go buy their CD!
Alternatively, to win a copy, simply LIKE my Facebook Page and leave a message on my wall to say why you would want to win the CD. It would be good if you can share The Glad Stones’ music video or official website with all your friends too.
The three lucky winners will be selected via a random draw by 15 Apr (next Mon). 🙂
