Tell us a bit about yourself?

We're a 3 piece garage rock band from Singapore that's without a bass guitar. We are a highly energetic band because we come from a highly stressful society and rock music is a huge form or release for us. We listen to bands like Nirvana, Ty Segall, Bass Drum of Death, Royal Blood, Drenge etc

There are a lot of emerging artists in the UK right now. What sets you apart from the rest?

It could be that we are culturally different from the bands in the UK. We three come from different backgrounds while sharing a common love for music. Some of us are inspired by melodies and percussions from India which gives us an extra edge in terms of coming up with melodies. The struggle that we go through in a country like Singapore where local music is sometimes frowned up, lets us go full throttle in making our music heard and that's why we are here.

What’s your back-story?

The band was formed by the lead singer Ashwin, he is originally from India, had a huge crush on an Australian actress and decided to fly to Singapore as a checkpoint spot to make his move to Australia later in the year. But since that has failed, Ashwin then got inspired to pick up music that depicts the whole idea of him earning to still meet this person while in reality it is definitely not possible and these songs tend and the theme of the band tend to capture this moment.

What are you working on at the moment?

We just released a brand new track called "White Shadow" with an even stronger lineup, we are going to up the ante by writing even better tunes that are catchy, melodic and energetic
