WATCH Brand New Music Video for “Simple Kind Of Life”

Indie pop darling and singer-songwriter, iNCH, is back with a brand new music video for her latest single ‘Simple Kind Of Life’ off her widely popular island-inspired Letters To Ubin EP!

Directed by Gerard Lopez and shot in Manila the music video features a deskbound iNCH dreaming of a simpler life whilst a robot attempts to win her over with several romantic gestures that all ultimately fail. Despite its title, Simple Kind Of Life is a layered, funk-pop track that dares you to sit still while the popping bass lines and bouncy beats take over the tune. 

“While living in Pulau Ubin, I found that the toughest part wasn’t adapting to provincial life. It was getting the urban life to leave me alone. This song pretty much was birthed craving for a simple kind of life.” - iNCH

Released in 2015, Letters To Ubin saw iNCH musing on city life and the countryside, deflecting back and forth between the mechanical and analog worlds. The seven tracks in the EP take listeners on a journey through the island, evoking its drowsy idleness and quirky residents, marked with the artist’s own reflections of a simpler life. 

Since the release of Letters To Ubin, iNCH has also been dabbling in theatre work, keeping herself busy with projects such as Detention Katong and the Pangdemonium production Tango. Most recently, she had also been involved in penning music for a mini-documentary for The Discovery Channel. 

Coming up, iNCH and her band will be taking to stage again for an epic show at Shine Festival 2017 this July! There will also be an exciting new release on the horizon in the later half of the year – more details to follow!

Mousedeer Lyric Video Released

#LettersToUbin was written during iNCH's 4-month stint as Artist in Residence on the rustic Ubin Island. During her precious time there, she found her spirit animal, the mouse deer — endangered, private and mysterious, yet when revealed is honest and vulnerable — a contradiction of meekness and artfulness. Brilliantly animated by the most amazing Annie Hung, check out this lyric video for first single #mousedeer, an adventure of iNCH exploring Ubin with her late #mrricky.

Excited to share that Letters to Ubin is now available for pre-order on iTunes!

Letters to Ubin follows her sophomore full-length album Bumfuzzle, which was released in 2013; and sees a departure from the whopping drum and aggressive guitar sounds that have become synonymous with her sound. Instead, the record features playful electronic beats juxtaposed with the analog charm of a typewriter’s clacking and animal sounds - samples from iNCH’s day-to-day life on Ubin – all tied together by her iridescent vocals.  The seven tracks take listeners on a journey through the island, evoking its drowsy idleness and quirky residents, marked with the artist’s own reflections of a simpler life.

Letters to Ubin is available for pre-order on iTunes from 6 November onwards.

INCH ANNOUNCES LAUNCH CONCERT FOR NEW EP

Singapore's beloved indie-pop princess Inch Chua, who now goes by the mononym moniker iNCH, is launching her new record Letters to Ubin at the Aliwal Arts Centre on November 26 at 8pm. 

In her upcoming release, Chua canters back to find her roots in nature, drawing ideas from the raw appeal of the offshore island of Pulau Ubin in a four-month stay as part of a joint project with The Artists Village & National Arts Council.

The new EP finds her reflecting on the juxtaposition between city life and the countryside, deflecting back and forth between the mechanical and analog worlds. 

iNCH beckons listeners to join her on an aural trek across the island, harkening them to consider this: Come, take a pause, and contemplate fruitful idleness — a concept that is a rare commodity in the Singaporean economy of life.
