  • The PLOT Thickens
    aplomb Launching into their set PLOT immediately set the crowd loose with a high energy song Initially I wanted to sing along to the choruses to help ease the boys into the Singaporean crowd Well of course punk is easy to sing along right Repeated lyrics and minimalistic riffs are a penchant of the genre Right Not for these rockers After the second song I was thoroughly confused as I couldn t decipher what Jitivi was singing PLOT would also occasionally break out into short reflective almost dreamy instrumentals Years of listening to punk rock flashed before my eyes as my brain whirred to grasp any conceptual clue as to what was going on Suddenly it dawned on me like brightest of rays that the PLOT boys were from Thailand which meant they weren t singing in English I could almost hear my editor s eyes rolling Ed s Note they didn t actually roll but almost Photo by Joshua Tan MOSHIN 2012 All Rights Reserved Despite not being able to understand the lyrics my initial impression was good as immediately I sensed enthusiasm and honesty in the music of the 3 piece rockers PLOT also stirred the crowd with their unique brand of progressive punk Their music was highly focused on improvising and freestyling as such it kept the audience on their toes One thing that I definitely loved about PLOT was how they seemed to really enjoy themselves despite the small audience From Jitivi s entertaining shuffle walk to Ponwit s groovy bass lines the energy from PLOT was infectious and it spread to the crowd as they swayed along to the beat Despite being young in their years it was apparent that the band was proficient in their respective instruments I loved how their intricate instrumental sections

  • Zahidah’s Ethereal EP Review
    a 5 track EP that consists of 3 English and 2 Malay songs each of them telling a story that we can definitely relate to Image Taken From Zahidah s Bandcamp Malam Ini strikes as a super fun and catchy song from the moment the guitar intro and the accompaniment of the drumbeats come in Simple yet such a delight to listen to say for example while enjoying the summer sun of the beach The song talks about how a person misses someone else no matter where they might be which is quite a testament to our everyday lives so definitely a song all of us can definitely relate to First Love shares the similar vibe to the song before it though the definitive message talks about something different entirely Reminiscent of those songs Taylor Swift is famous for First Love talks about a girl s feelings for well her first love A song you can be expected to hear on the radio it is without a doubt a song easy on the ears Rindu takes the whole EP to a slow standstill with a malay ballad The song just makes you feel a little bit gloomy but not in a bad way The song talks about missing a very important person and definitely one that has you clinging to your chest while remembering the good times An emotional ballad indeed but a great one at that How Does It Feel another slow ballad is definitely for me my favourite off the EP Solely because of the buildup from the bridge onwards kind of a familiar buildup that of which reminds you of Coldplay s Fix You The track builds up from a slow start to a strong middle and finishing off with a soft ending Can t really say

  • Fall Of Mirra, Circling The Wagons Launch Party
    an equally great set with amazing energy and great band coordination which made for such an enjoyable performance After the two bands played their set and after a short intermission it was finally time for the main event Opening up with a short intro they dived right into their setlist of songs from their album some of which echoed a great roar of feedback from the crowd With their fast riffs accompanied by lead singer Brandon s growls and false chord screams fans of Fall Of Mirra who were standing around before started to break out their hardcore dance moves in the pit Others were crowding around the stage screaming the lyrics to all the songs they knew Right before they played Weight of the Crown Brandon and Hadi wanted to ensure that everyone was ready to shout the opening line with them So right after the invigorating guitar intro the crowd immediately screamed out Motherf cker as loud as they possibly could Right near the end of the song after the immense breakdown loved the silent hit of the crash by the way Brandon yelled out the lines before handing the mic over to a member of the crowd to finish the song Crowd participation was aplenty in the entire set and the one song that got everyone crazy was A Thousand Steps Prior To None the song the band released with their DIY music video Everyone was screaming along to the song word for word and the few hardcore fans in front were fighting to grab the microphone from Brandon to sing a few lines for all to hear That right there what you guys did just now was amazing said Brandon to the entire crowd garnering applause as they continued with their set Another moment of ensuing
