Zeeaura’s multilingual ditty now comes alive in a beautiful, poignant music video. The visually ingenuous and unassuming treatment is an invitation into the heart of Monkey Land. As the story unfolds, you might just find yourself clutching your heart a little. Watch the video below and share it with everyone.
Greed, a song by LEW, featured on Season 2 of People Like Us, alongside music by Joie Tan, Astronauts, Joshua Simon, Charlie Lim and Jasmine Sokko.
Small Batch Records is proud to release the brand new debut single from multi-ligual indie pop darling, Zeeaura. Monkey Land is the first single from the eco-conscious artist.
The song is an ode to Pulau Ubin, one of the last untouched natural habitat islands of Singapore. Written and performed in English, Mandarin and Bahasa, the song fuses languages spoken in the city (English) and the island (Mandarin and Bahasa) to deliver a nostalgic haiku, taking the listener on a journey through a different time and era.
Not on to rest on his laurels, just one year from his debut album release, LEW has been relentlessly writing and recording his next sophomore release.
ENFJ was released at a launch concert on 27th July in Singapore to a room packed of fans singing along to heartfelt ballads. All this while finishing his first year at Berklee School of Music in Boston.
Hard at work, off the heels of completing first year at Berklee School of Music, LEW releases yet another single, War In My Brain. This time, a duet with sultry Singaporean songstress, Theodora. The fresh electronic track is a collaboration with college mate and producer Abram.
War In My Brain represents LEW's continued venture into edgier electronic pop sensibilities and a growing maturity as a songwriter.
Listen on Spotify, Apple Music and all good streaming services.
Fresh from his first year at Berklee, LEW releases a collaborative single, INSOMNIA, with music producer, Jajoma. The single showcases LEW's diverse writing and performance prowess as it is a departure from the contemporary singer-songwriter genre he has been known for. Check out the dark, seductive, experimental single now on Spotify.
Love Is, the surprise single, was released in time on Valentine's Day. As the title suggests, the quirky high energy track is an ode to being in love, a wide-eyed celebration of all its spectrums and definitions.
Even though LEW just started his first year at Berklee College of Music, the hardworking singer-songwriter is still relentlessly writing and releasing new music.
A remix of the song was also released shortly after, a collaborative pop re-imagination of the track, with fellow college mate and producer, Chris Color.
Check out the original and remix below.
Countless pitches across US, Europe, Australia and Asia have landed licensing deals for our artists' music. We want to celebrate this small milestone of having over 50 successful licensing deals secured to date.
Starting with a TV show sync for Jude Young's song, Young, in Singapore, we've successfully placed the single on the national prime time TV series, Tanglin, synced with trailers and episodes in June.
At the same time, we've also serviced select tracks for in-store radio playlists at 23 ESTEE LAUDER DFS stores covering 10 countries, a license lasting 2 years.
Following in this vein, we have gone on to license songs for our artists through our partners for in-store playlists at retail stores, fast food chains, spa, fitness centres and restaurants across the US and Europe.
These include a curated use of key music from our catalogue for on-hold messaging and audio branding in addition to in-store streaming for retail businesses with a potential of reaching over 8500 business locations across the US alone.
Tracks have also been licensed to our podcast studio partner in Australia, supplying music for on-demand audio podcast productions, whose clients range from traditional broadcast to online media like Singapore Press Holdings, Mashable and Channel 9 Australia.
These milestones come after months of several hundred pitches to music supervisors ranging from US network TV, Cable TV to trailer houses for promoting media content and ads to retail branding and in-store streaming audio solutions and even music for gaming and entertainment apps. Select tracks from our artists will also be featured on compilation albums circulating in the US market in the months to come.
We are very excited about this milestone, working and representing the artists on our catalogue.
