BAND BIO

Alternative Rock

Four members, Jonathan on the bass, Gerard on the vocals and guitar, Brandon on the guitar and Dave on the drums.


How did you guys get together?

The boredom of Junior College life got to us, and it started being a habit looking forward to something at the end of the week that was significantly different from ordinary school life.


What inspires you to create the songs that you do?

It has always been a good mix of our genres. For example, Gerard came in with heavy pop influences, Dave and Jonathan with heavy alternative influences and Brandon with blues inferences. Now we just write something that we really like and make it sound nice (or at least we think they do).


What do you hope for the audience to imagine or feel when they listen to your songs?

we just hope for some songs we have general messages of anger, or some sort of pain that’s quite personal to us but at the same time reasonably universal to everyone else. Of course, there’s songs are just entirely happy and some about chilling. We hope they can just have fun, and enjoy our songs.


Why do you think fellow Singaporeans can relate to your music?

With our style of our music, we see ourselves appealing to fellow musicians most of the time. However, we do have some extremely catchy (and dance-y bits) so we hope that’s a relation that appeals to everyone.


What do you want your audience to take out after watching you perform live?

To see that we love our music, and treat it seriously and they can perhaps enjoy the experience in its entirety.


You've been on a journey with anaki. How have the last 6 months made you feel?

We love how serious Anaki is with the exposure of different bands and how they’re so committed to being a multi-genre label. This all-inclusiveness is brave, unprecedented and really brings a different sort of vibe into the local music scene.


What are your hopes for Singapore circa 2050?

That the music industry matures further and more people are willing to take the risk of delving in their passions. That people would be just as willing to listen to local music as they are to international acts.
