Meet Gentle Bones
Joel Tan a.k.a. Gentle Bones is a rising Singaporean folk-pop star. His journey began a mere five years ago when he picked up a guitar and discovered his natural songwriting talent. Since then he has made a name for himself opening for international acts such as Us The Duo, and starring in famous YouTuber’s videos such as Kurt Hugo Schneider. His lyrics and melodies make quite the pair with his soft, dreamy voice and laid back acoustic guitar. Gentle Bones brings a slight mystique to his indie folk music yet retains comforting and gentle sound. Last year in Singapore, his eponymous EP shot straight to number one, making waves in the music scene.
The single “Sixty Five”
Now he has returned with a new single “Sixty Five.” Written to be featured in the much anticipated Singaporean film titled “1965.” The film is set in the years before Singapore’s independence and unravels the history of Singapore in the 60’s, exploring the volatile racial relationships and drama resulting in a terrifying undeclared war. The movie is out in Singaporean cinemas 30th July. Watch the trailer below and read more about the movie on their Facebook page here!
