Beloved vinyl stronghold Hear Records opens new outlet in Chinatown

Orange-hued music store Hear Records has long been a stronghold for vinyl lovers at Burlington Square, and we’re glad to hear that it’s done well enough to launch another branch — this time in Chinatown.

The cosy store is already (and deservedly) recognised as one of the best record shops in the world, and Singapore’s music lovers can’t help but keep coming back to chew the cud with founder Nick Tan and peruse the thousands of records in his ever-expanding catalogue. Cool cats will now have the option to drop by Hear Records’ second repository at Banda Street for even more vinyl classics, as well as high-end turntables, electronics and other accessories. Not to mention it’s an awesome place to hang out and talk about music for hours with Nick and his equally passionate staff.

The new store’s now officially open to cater all your music needs — find it at 5 Banda Street, located just next to the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple and Museum.
