Singaporean Cherie Ko has done a number of projects over the years, including the ‘bedroom pop’ solo Pastelpower. She decided to release a compilation of every song she’s done under that name, and kinda close out the project with a bang: getting a bunch of musician friends to play

Singapore Inside Out on December 2nd.

TodayOnline has a big feature interview with Cherie, her ongoing and new projects. Very informative!

About the band in the clip: 

While most of her Pastelpower shows feature only Ko and her keyboards, for this show, Ko has roped in four other musicians to accompany her: Jean Low, the lead singer of local band Giants Must Fall, who collaborated with Ko in the Ferry x Cherie music projects this year; Rachel Tan, singer of Lost Weekend; Melina Kymmie, the singer with The Great White Lark and singer-songwriter Joanne Goh.

You can listen/purchase the Pastelpower Farewell Cruel World compilation over at bandcamp. Lots of cute songs!  =D  And follow the clip back to yt to see the rest of the set from Dec. 2nd.

Cherie Ko aka Pastelpower.
We featured her a coupla weeks ago, along with her side project Bored Spies. She’s also guitarist for the band Obedient Wives Club.
stayinblue just told me that Cherie has an ‘altar ego’ channel called Talk To The Walls, with pop & indie covers going back 6 years!
I love her voice, just a really pure sound that’s versatile enough for twee, pop, shoegaze, etc. =D
She kind of spreads her activity out all over the place, LOL:

More Pastelpower. This is the clip that stayinblue included in her post we linked to earlier today.
The reason I’m posting again is because I don’t want you to overlook a chance to hear an artist introduce their music in English; also the format for this video channel (Kombi Sessions) is so charming: there’s an interview, and then the band pile into the back seat of an old Volkswagen Kombi, and they drive around, playing music. How great is that?! =D
Cherie Ko is getting e-percussion help here from Adel Rashid Singapore. This busy fellow plays with Pleasantry, Amateur Takes Control, I Am David Sparkle, and has his own music on bandcamp. (atm, I think he is attending college in Chicago, IL)

stayinblue noticed yesterday’s post about Bored Spies and clued me in to *yet another Cherie Ko project called Pastelpower.

Pastelpower is twee-tronic/dreampop, very soothing and cute. =D

*Cherie also plays guitar with Obedient Wives Club, doufuhua made that connection for us. =)
So let’s hear some Pastelpower, coming up next…
