Two months ago, I was invited by @fredperrysg, alongside a number of individuals far more creative than I, to share a bit about myself in celebration of subculture. Including a showcase of portraits shot by my good friend @coolbeancake, Fred Perry Subculture Live offered us the chance to share the songs that inspire us with visitors, highlighting the diverse influences of Singapore's creative scene. Thanks again to Fred Perry for championing local creativity, and if you'd like to hear the music that makes me move, visit the link in bio for my handpicked @spotifyasia selections. 📸: @colossalphotos
