THE GIFT COVERS

Released in 2003 off Wake Me Up Music, THE GIFT plays an underrated but influential role with music fans & musicians alike.

“We’ve always felt that PLAINSUNSET’S songs have this timeless charm to them”, states RAY TAN from 29 Cornflakes.  

“We wanted a new take on these songs. So we asked a few of our good friends – & a few friends we barely knew. What we did know about all of them was that PLAINSUNSET had played a role in their music careers at one point in time.”

What became of this idea is “The Gift Covers”, featuring THE SAM WILLOWS, THE DIRT RADICALS, INCH CHUA, THE SUMMER STATE & more.

 

"THE GIFT contributed to an important era of our life”, comments SAM COOPER from THE DIRT RADICALS – and they aren’t the only notable band to be influenced.VICTORIA CHEW, from 2013 breakout pop-punk group, THE SUMMER STATE called the albuma timeless classic album that is still relevant a decade later” and “an album that paved the way for many Singaporean bands especially those in the pop/punk scene.”  

BENJAMIN KHENG,Vocalist and Guitarist of THE SAM WILLOWS, shares parallel romanticisms – “THE GIFT was the first local record I ever picked up. It opened my eyes to music on this island. If it weren't for these guys, many of us wouldn't even have contemplated doing music here.”

 

Fans will receive the seven-track digital only release as part of their pre-order bundle.

ABOUT PLAINSUNSET

Formed in 1996, Plainsunset have 3 full-length albums under their belt, and is by far one of the most influential and inspiring bands in Singapore to date.

They have performed internationally, taking their music to Malaysia, Hong Kong, The Philippines, New Zealand, China and most recently Australia in a series of successful tours. With such a long history of playing out, it is no wonder every Plainsunset show is more than a performance - it is an unforgettable experience.

The band broke up in 2004, signifying the end of an era for them and for each individual member to focus on other musical activities. In 2006, they made their return at the Esplanade’s Baybeats 2006, Singapore’s Biggest Indie-Alternative Music Festival to set a Baybeats record of the highest ever turnout for a single set to 8,500 screaming fans. 

Plainsunset have since released two albums since it’s return. The self titled “Plainsunset” in 2008 and the experimental EP “Collabor-8” in 2009. A sixth album set for a 2014 release is being worked on now.
