“I hope the songs relate to people in different way, as people put their own meaning to them,” says frontwoman Stephanie Lim of local three-piece band HubbaBubbas. “The songs don’t just belong to me anymore, and it’s gratifying to know that they are doing something good somewhere.”
An eclectic fusion of rock, pop, R&B and jazz, HubbaBubbas’ debut EP Amy(gdala), took 2 years to create and produce. “If we had kept persisting on perfection, we probably wouldn’t have released the EP yet. It was a reminder to know when to let go.” Indeed, assembling a song is no easy feat. For Steph, who is currently studying in NUS, she finds it most productive to write them on her notes app in the bathroom. “Words have a feeling attached to them,” she explains, “and trying to write with integrity to the emotions felt is a whole challenge by itself.” In our weekly featurette, Steph explains how “the band wants to emulate the feeling you get when you discover that your favourite song has multiple layers.”
