Nicholas Chim’s evolutionary journey of indie folk music is expressed in his second album Forgiefan - a record that is both classic and contemporary, highlighted by Chim’s haunting vocals along with guitar chords that are lucid yet dreamy.
A painstaking process is recorded in this album - initiated by a difficult end to a relationship - what at first was an attempt to move on from emotional trauma became an exploration into the self - as a young man living in Singapore and also as a solo musician. Songs such as “As Long As You Come First” express longing and a desire, whereas “Caterwauling” reveals a more desperate sense of loss. One of the most bewitching songs on the album, “This House Still Stands” uses a string arrangement that illustrates a wistful beauty, bringing to mind a low point in an emotional landscape, yet at the same time bids farewell to a deep hangup, a resolution further asserted in Chim’s lyrics: “this house still stands on a hill, waiting for you to make it your home”.
This journey through emotional introspection is the journal of a young man, and of love: the love of a woman, the love of his guitar, and the love of music. Chim’s dedication to perfecting his craft and expressing emotions is a formula for a talented singer and songwriter that every folk music enthusiast should watch out for.
