Singapore’s finest musical export The Sam Willows – Benjamin Kheng, Narelle Kheng, Sandra Riley Tang and Jon Chua – premiere on FM their new single ‘Keep Me Jealous’, a feel-good dance pop number, co-produced by the band themselves with Fredrik Häggstam and Litens Anton.
Kheng explains…“We wanted to write songs that didn’t just speak from the extremes, but dealt with the complex, nuanced shades of life as a young adult, from things like love and desolation, to social justice and everything in between. We also wanted to make bolder musical choices, pushing ourselves away from comfort and working with different instruments and sounds. “Keep Me Jealous” as a lead single talks about that distressing but beautiful part of love where envy is wielded as a tool to keep the fire going. I think we all do it to some degree. It is a reflex born out of wanting to be wanted, and despite being selfish in nature, carries the intent of holding on to the person. It’s just fun to explore that discomfort in song.”
