Urgh. Holidays, they are such a cruel affair. Just a few hours and you are back at the daily grind. No fear, because we’ve scoured Singapore for some rad videos to cheer up your Wednesday.

Tay Kewei performed a stripped-down version of her second single, Lay Down, from her latest album Fallin on clicknetwork. The song as it is, already sounds pretty poignant and soulful but this arrangement just gives us the chills. Oh yes, if you do want to buy her album, it’s available here.

Nothing is as raw in music production as seeing an artiste putting a track together. ShiGGa Shay‘s debut EP “They Call Me ShiGGa” drops this May, but he lets us into the recording studio to see his second single Break Me being pieced together with Muzique and one heck of an insane beat. Break Me drops 3rd May.

Since Spring Awakening ended its run on February, we’ve not heard much from crooner Nathan Hartono. Well, he’s now the ambassador for this year’s Eco Music Challenge and he decided to pen an original with that fancy multi-pane view showing the instruments being played. Even more reasons to reduce your carbon footprint? We’d like to think so.

We’ve come to know Kelly Latimer pretty well a couple of times, which makes us even more excited to know that she and Adam Osman were selected as the winners of AsiaRoom.com’s Search For Singapore’s Next Social Travel Star! (Brownie points for chemistry and having that golden hosting voice we all love.) This video is their hilarious audition piece. Their web series, The Right Room, premieres 16 May 2012 on AsiaRoom.com’s YouTube channel and will feature the duo on their travel pursuits and sharing hotel tips. All we need is for the duo to do the classic eating-your-food-slowly shot and we’re sold.

Subscene.TV‘s a new web programme focusing on Singapore musicians and artistes. This installment follows artiste Sleep Easy singing Stale Words in a playground with a xylophone. It cannot get anymore kitschy-lepak than this. Head over to their YouTube channel for more of Sleep Days and other acts.

We published this on The Dash but we couldn’t resist doing a plug here, especially when Shahridzuan‘s teaser to upcoming music video Be My Girl Tonight featuring Mark Bonafide is this good. Frankly, this single could make mainstream bank. Replay 2 more times for maximum effect.

You know the age-old mantra that Singaporeans aren’t fashionable? Bullshit, if Poshism were to say. They just launched an inter-polytechnic fashion contest and this promo video os just so cool that all polytechnic students would instantly want to wear their evening best to campus. For the rest of us, we shall just sit and reminisce the good ol’ tims when we were young, wild and free.

Jessica Irawan‘s latest music video for Don’t You Love Me off her eponymous album has the songstress doing what I really want to do: film myself singing on the Helix Bridge. We’ve got a review of her album plus how to win a copy, coming up this week – stay tuned for that.

Lastly, our favourite parkour YouTuber jumped and filmed some epic shots in London. Some things are better left without explanation.

Happy day after Labour Day! (Or at least try to be.)
