Dawn Wong’s debut EP DAWN is a decidedly positive collection of songs, created in spite of the ominous thought that this could be her first ‘hello’ and last ‘goodbye’. On her maiden recording effort which could also be her last, each song was deliberately crafted as if there was no tomorrow.
DAWN explores Pop, Ballad and Rock styles over five polished tracks (four Mandarin & one English), with splashes of Jazz influences (#1 The Perfect Two, #3 On The Run) for a fresh sound that brings out Dawn’s characteristically sweet and soothing vocals.
Eschewing the role of the spurned lover because Dawn believes in love, the EP does not include any break-up songs that listeners seem addicted to. All five songs on DAWN are centered round themes of love, gratitude and positivity – attitudes that Dawn believes the world needs more of.
Jointly produced by Dawn and rising Singaporean producer / arranger / songwriter Tat Tong (Show Luo, Vanness Wu/Junho (2PM), Karen Mok, Derrick Hoh), the last song 「温习」closes the EP on a mellow note, hanging in suspension to evoke thought and reflection, leaving the listener to wonder if this really is the last goodbye.
Straits Times (Singapore) - 3.5/5
"A singer's first release is a calling card to the world and, happily, ... (Dawn Wong's) debut effort shows promise... offers hopeful, positive songs that draw on genres from pop to jazz."
TODAY (Singapore) - 3.5/5
"A Perky Debut... This five-track eponymous EP seems to show her preference for perky pop... she goes for pleasantry, and for most part, it works to a T."
