Modern Rock / Hard Rock
Angel Wine was formed in 2009 by 4 passionate musicians; Kish on vocals and guitar, Kenn on guitar, Peter on bass and Raj on drums. The band is heavily influenced by rock music icons from the 80's to 90's era. These strong influences are reflected in their originals. With the combination of hard rock songs and soft rock ballads, Angel Wine proves to have great diversity in their music.
How did you guys get together?
When Kish decided to form a band in 2009, he got in touch with his brother, Raj, to play drums. Together, we sourced out for another guitarist and bassist using the forum at Soft.com.sg. That’s how we got Kenn and Peter on board.
What inspires you to create the songs that you do?
Many of our originals are based on our personal lives, as well as the events occurring around us. We have written a song about the negativity of war (Cold War), a song about humanity and peace (We’ll Be Alright) as well as a song about following your dreams and living life to the fullest (Rock This Town).
What do you hope for the audience to imagine or feel when they listen to your songs?
A lot of our songs are lyrics-driven, meaning that our lyrics have a message that we want to express to the world through our music. Hence, we would love our audience to absorb and comprehend the message we trying to deliver, as well as experience the emotion we felt while writing those songs.
Why do you think fellow Singaporeans can relate to your music?
We feel a lot of Singaporeans face similar issues in their lives, be it happiness, sadness or anger. Since our songs are primarily based on personal experiences and events around us, we feel most people would be able to relate to our lyrics in many different ways.
You've been on a journey with anaki. How have the last 6 months made you feel?
We love how Anaki supports local talent. They don’t just select the popular bands, they give everyone a chance to step up and perform their music and their art form. And we feel that that’s the true meaning of supporting local talent.
What are your hopes for Singapore circa 2050?
We would love Singapore to continue to progress as it has been progressing and we hope the art scene in Singapore continues to grow bigger and bigger where people would no longer look at being a musician or an artist or a dancer as “not proper job”.
