about

Jaime Wong's first EP debuted at #2 on Singapore's iTunes charts and was launched at a sold-out show in May 2015. The EP has been described as a "gorgeous folk-pop suite dedicated to lost love" and "essential" by Power of Pop.

"...and it is this rawness that fills Wong’s debut effort. There is an intimacy here that connects with those who listen; the simplicity of a voice and a guitar often lost on landscapes that function on hustle and bustle. Jaime Wong is a welcome surprise."- JUICE Singapore

"...it's in her first EP, a wandering tribute to lost love, and a compilation of her most heartfelt songs to date, that Jaime Wong seems to have found her true voice. Read between the self-penned lines, and you'll find dreamy, evocative vocals that make her musings that more profound."- Nylon Singapore

"Jaime Wong – a rising local artist that recorded the eponymous EP with Leonard Soosay of Snakeweed Studios – gives a polished account of lost love, as she takes the listener on a journey from the beginning to the destination; from the breakup to the wake up. Her soothing voice carefully navigates the nicely coordinated harmonies – from major to minor – in a raw vocal tenacity that is in no way representative of how new she might be to the local music circle."- CATALOG MAGAZINE

"If music were molecules, I’d imagine them to be hovering around my workstation, not quite diffusing far. These were shy music molecules, designed to get you to sit a little closer and offer your ear to listen in closely - like Jaime is whispering a secret for you alone. It’s got a private personality, so vulnerable and intimate..."- Jump Into The Limbo

Track Name: Shame on You
I guess what they said, all was true
There's no way around to what's been used
There's no way of fixing what's been ruined
Shame on you

Most songs tend to remind me of you
It's like they are laughing at my gloom
Oh, tell me what am i to do
When music's not a kind refuge

I'd love to
Forget you
So I wrote this song to remember to forget you
And these words remind me not to be a fool for you
It's too late to be such a fool

It's all inescapable
Unavoidable and all part of the consequence
But it's hard to reconcile with the unstoppable
When there's so much of us we've yet to learn.

I guess what that song said, all was true
That breaking hearts never break in twos;
That one's bound to move to start anew
The other one's left so resentful

But I've got to
Forget you
So i wrote this song to remember to forget you
And these words remind me not to be a fool for you
I'm too old to be such a fool

It's all inescapable
Unavoidable and all part of the consequence
But it's hard to reconcile with the unstoppable
When there's so much of you I've yet to learn.

I guess what they said, all was true.
There's no way around to what's been used
There's no way of fixing what's been ruined
Shame on you
Track Name: Skin
Head high above the water
So high I can't see what's under
Under your skin

Inked your name on my shoulder
There's no need for you to falter.
Now you're my skin

I knew it wouldn't be easy
I went back on all I believed in
Just to hold you.
I knew it wouldn't be easy
I let myself in too early
Just to hold you

Just lean a little closer
This close and let us listen
What's under your skin

I knew it wouldn't be easy
I went back on all I believed in
Just to hold you.
I knew it wouldn't be easy
I let myself in too early
Just to hold you
Track Name: To Lost Love
Noise in the silence, sometimes I feel you
I'm not a fighter; I let my walls come down

Laid down my weapon, but deep in the darkness
is that you reloading the gun that we all call love?

You planted in me a seed of wanting someone (someone)
When all I've ever done, was knowing that I needed no one

It all comes down to lost love; it'd break you, or make you
you see, it's no place for logic or reason
Let's make a toast to lost love; drink up and count the nights again
you know I'll take that bullet anyway

It all comes down to lost love; it'd break you, or make you
you see, it's no place for logic or reason
Let's make a toast to lost love; drink up and count the fights again
you know the night is early anyway

It all comes down to lost love; it'd break you, or make you
you see, it's no place for logic or reason
Let's make a toast to lost love; I'll probably sing this again
I guess we're built this way
we'll need a couple more of beers
you know I'll take that bullet anyway

Calm in the loudness, now I can't feel you
I'll be a fighter and start building walls from here
Track Name: 2:32AM
I don't know which way to go
I thought that you might know
But you wouldn't say a word
You left me stuck in all your dirt

Here we go
Motionless on this open road
Here we go

If only you could see, what I see
don't you think
We could be anything?
If only you could see, what I see
don't you think
Your heart would be complete?

No one has laid foot in this arc
Did you creep in in the dark?
But now you wouldn't say word
You think my heart is too absurd

So here we go
Motionless on this open road
Here we go

If only you could see, what I see
Everything would be
Within our reach to keep?
If only you could see, what I see
Darling, don't you think
your heart would be...

Words have lost their meanings
Songs have lost their melodies
I am incomplete

Here we go
Motionless on this open road
Here we go

If only you could see, what I see
don't you think
We could be anything
If only you could see, what I see
don't you think
We could do anything

If only you could see, what I see
Everything would be
Within our reach to keep
If only you could see, what I see
Darling, don't you think
Your heart would be complete?

Then I would be complete.
