Singaporean folk singer Lincoln Lim has been performing in the Singaporean music scene for almost nine years but, including this latest, he only has three singles to date. Yet, this does not diminish the quality of his latest transmission.
‘Alive’ starts off with a tinge of cheekiness; quick and sharp guitar strums with the loud, emphatic sound of the bass drum. Maintaining his jaunty vocals throughout most the track, he snarls certain words to give them a punch of emphasis. But as the bridge comes, he seamlessly switches to his falsetto, expertly placing his vocals on top of the blend of the choir-like backing vocals and accelerated percussion. This proves his masterful ability to dramatise a harmonious soundscape with the beauty of story-telling.
