Singapore singer-songwriter Jean Tan has released an alternative sweet soul 5-track EP, Blooms.
Blooms explores the idea that every time there is darkness, there is also a time of light which follows; of note, the ending track is a sliver of newness after a period of stasis, a near-perfect reflection of the times we lived in. Inspired by Sylvia Plath’s poem, ‘Tulips’, the floral imagery does not seek to despair as it did in the in the original text, but instead reminds us that the withering is a sign of a bed of blooms to come. Seasons come and go, and the presence of winter gives sprint its meaning.
Blooms is now available on all streaming services.
