In lieu of Singapore’s 53rd National Day, the Workers’ Party released a wordless video focusing on the soundscape of Singapore.

Yes, that’s right, their video has no words, or dialogue.

The two-and-a-half minute long video takes one through a journey of the sights and sounds in Singapore; the void deck of a HDB block late at night, a busy bus-stop, a crowded hawker centre, a park where a grandmother takes her grandson for a walk.

All of these are simple experiences, yet ones that fall right into the everyday lives of so many Singaporeans.

The video focuses on the sounds of these places – as familiar as they are – and serves to resonate within the everyman.

Netizens who watched the video were pleasantly surprised by this audible treat and felt that a relatable message was conveyed nonetheless.
