The new collaboration between the two Singaporean singers is a laid-back track that, as Gentle Bones a.k.a. Joel Tan puts it, “perfectly addressed our struggles of the duality we face in both our personal relationships and our strive to touch people with our music.”
This Friday will indeed be a ‘FriYAY’ for music lovers. That’s because Gentle Bones and Charlie Lim will be releasing their new single, “Two Sides”!
“There are two sides to every picture and sometimes a mutual understanding can only come about when our differences, no matter how distinct, are first acknowledged for their own unique and imperfect beauty.
“It all stems from love and a bit of heartbreak to arrive at an understanding that we are all one,” said the singer, who admits that he is a big fan of Charlie and was inspired by the singer to become a music artiste.
Meanwhile, Charlie stated, ”For myself, a lot of the lyrics came from a place of frustration with someone, but at the same time knowing that there’s always a reason why things happen the way they do and why people are the way they are. So to me, a lot of the song is about living in that strange tension of trying to be empathetic and not completely giving up on a person, even though you’ve been wronged or hurt by them.
While we wait for “Two Sides” to drop this Friday, let’s for now enjoy the duo’s respective music.
