Consisting of 4 entirely different individuals - Brendon Chua (lead vocals, guitar), Jereld Ang (vocals, lead guitar), Shawn Chan (drums, percussion), Benjamin Mah (bass), local alternative pop band, The Façade, found its flavour: pop, rock, and a tinge of blues.

Melodic tropes and groovy beats are signature to the band. The Façade’s live performances often bring the audience through a heartwarming journey with their sentimental and heartfelt lyrics, melodic hooks and tasty beats.

<Vanity> is mastered by Max Hons who has racked up recording and mixing credits for numerous top 40 artists including Bastille, The 1975, Jake Bugg, Years and Years and Rizzle Kicks.
