By request, here is What About by The Sugarflies.

The Sugarflies were made up of June Koh and Stella Tan. They were prominent in the Singapore local music scene in the mid 90s, with their melodic indie pop. They were actually the first local band I ever saw live, in 1998 when I was 15. They released one amazing album, "And That's Why" and contributed to several local movie soundtracks ("Teenage Textbook" and "Mee Pok Man") before disbanding when they went abroad to study. A pity because they were young (performing while in secondary school) and immensely talented songwriters. 'What About' is one catchy tune with a very retro flavour.
