Lakorns OST was my gateway to Thai pop but the language remained a barrier for me to get to know artistes/songs which don’t get the exposure through lakorns. These days when I’m in the mood for some new Thai pop, I surf around youtube, linking from one song to the other and giving random singers a try. But again, if the singer and/or song doesn’t have an English name it can be hard for me to find that song again when I want another listen so I’m doing this Thai pop digest series as a way for me to keep a record of those songs as well as to recommend Thai pop to those who are not familiar with it. Enjoy~
My introduction to New and Jiew was from 2014 Samee Tee Tra’s OST. I initially thought they were solo artists who teamed up for the song but turns out they are a duo. I’ve enjoyed all their ballads so far and some of their songs are subbed on the GMM Grammy International yt channel.
The Kpop influence is very obvious with girl group G-Twenty, right down to having a designated ‘rapper’ in the group, who really just mumbles a few lines instead of singing. I find the melody of this song really catchy and it will probably on my music loop for a while but for now I’m not inclined to check out their other stuff.
Uhmm, I think the singer’s name is Grand? The ‘no no no’ part is so addictive. haha. This is a nice one to bob my head to while doing stuff. Anyone has other songs of hers to rec?
Neko Jump’s vocals aren’t particularly strong but guess I’m in the mood for some emo ballads?
