  • I Hate This Place @ That Indie Thing You Do
    and not like a literal place We don t actually hate this place CHIJMES said Sean to the audience These three played a psychedelic set equipped with a projector shining out footages that accompanied the band s performance and amplifying the electronic part of their genre to a whole new level The crowd was entertained enjoying the electropop tunes the band was dishing out for them to hear Gayle s vocals were the perfect accompaniment to Sean s indie esque voice which reminded me of Adam Young s vocals or otherwise known as Owl City the pair belting out harmony after harmony that gelled together seamlessly Roman playing his new guitar according to Gayle was the perfect ingredient to complete this wondrous combo filling in and completing each song with his chord play He also played little melodic leads here and there as a support to Sean s keyboard Even with no drummer on board for their set electronic backing drum tracks made sure the beats were not compromised at all In between his keyboard fills the drum tracks and energetic bouncing while performing he managed to find time between songs to relax with a sip of white wine Indeed the trio was excellent at keeping up an audience interest in between songs in the simple and traditional way of keeping a conversation going Gayle s interaction with the other members of the band as well as her energy and bubbly personality created a very comfortable atmosphere she even shuffled for a bit during one of their songs which the crowd enjoyed very much Their set comprised of originals featured Falling For a slow song that differed from their usually upbeat melodies but caught this mosher s attention nonetheless The harmonies for that track especially were excellent with Gayle providing

  • Kellie Kills It
    2012 All Rights Reserved I m really happy to be here Kellie said We practiced four hours last night for this and I am having an amazing time fireworks are pretty much my favourite thing She gushed as she strummed the opening intro of her original We Are Made of Stars The heartfelt single struck a reflective chord into the hearts of the audience Despite the lack of a bass to fill in the gaps Kellie and Ben seemed sufficient to fatten out the sound With regards to the lack of a bass player Kellie explained I have just never found myself sorely missing it Also I consider myself a really good bass player so I would have a hard time trying to replace me Kellie jokes And she definitely fired on all cylinders during the set Her uplifting songwriting style mixed wondrously with the disconsolate and regressive nature of her voice The unique balance was clearly apparent in her single Your Heart is a Hunter The reflective track conjured images of chilly snowstorms and lonely nights spent in front of a crackling fireplace and transported me into places of deepest despair yet with expectant hope Photo by Han Qi Guang MOSHIN 2012 All Rights Reserved As an avid guitarist myself it was certainly a pleasure seeing Kellie display her technical proficiency of the instrument My personal highlights of her set were definitely her wah driven solos On more than one occasion I fervently cheered as she strutted her stuff around the stage immersed in passion and ardour When I met the songstress backstage she greeted me with a warm smile and a chirpy eagerness to share her stories as I quizzed her about her music There s no rule I make everything up Kellie explained when I asked about

  • Feel The Effect
    Competition It is of course no surprise that they were invited to play at Music Matters this year The quartet were just warming up as I rushed into the Crazy Elephant Clarke Quay just in time for the opening strains of their set Launching into their set with the upbeat and foot tapping single 4 29 the band immediately impressed the crowd with their overall tightness and mellifluous vocals The avid audience was soon bopping to the catchy synthesizer beats whilst winding down the day with a pint of beer at the homely bar I was just settling into one of the rustic seats as the band jumped into another one of their originals Angels immediately following up with Choose Both songs had a ridiculously catchy dance feel to the chorus fluctuating between high energy and reflective segments I of course subconsciously found myself mustering all my self restraint not to break out into a dance The Auditory Effect displayed strong technical prowess from Jonathan s searing lead work to the band s seemingly capricious improvisations in between songs often sparked off by random musings of Audrey As if their songs were not catchy enough frontman Helmey would produce the occasional shaker or a short clapping segment as well as flash a charming smile for the ladies My own personal favourite Sekrets was the fourth song of their set list The song opened with hauntingly deep vocals and ambient synth which soon blended into the backdrop as Helmey transitioned from smooth belt into glassy falsetto I thoroughly enjoyed the psychedelic and shoe gazy mood and found myself enthusiastically clapping by the end of the song Time indeed flew by too fast as Helmey soon announced their last song for night Superstar Again with their trademark for extremely catchy choruses yes

  • Album Review: In The Shadow Of The Sun by Dulcinea
    perfectly that mere words cannot describe the beauty of its musical execution For the sceptical listen to Silent Reign the first track off the album The song introduction would have given any listener the idea of ethereality The synths as well as the background effects of the song kept me hooked onto the song like children to the Pied Piper For those who watch Doctor Who listen out for the drumbeats at the beginning of the song though the similarity was probably coincidental I digress back to the album Dulcinea completely changed the feel of the album with Koyaaniqatsi which prominently featured the acoustic electric and electric guitar This duet of guitars made me kind of confused but in a good way The acoustic electric guitar gave me a sense of security and calm but the electric guitar added a dash of angst and darkness that would have been absent without it Guitar enthusiasts this is the song of your people Just as you are lulled into a sense of security or desolation Dulcinea keeps you on your feet as they go through an entire rhythm overhaul Sacred Star is a fast paced number that makes you feel as if you are running a mental marathon Be prepared to find yourself unconsciously head bopping or in my case seat bouncing to the unusually catchy riffs Comprising of vocalist Gerard Richards guitarists Paul Yong and Mathew Thomas bassist and keyboardist Jason Ng and drummer Rashid Mohd Said Dulcinea does it again in Ice On The Sun with its mood and rhythm evolution within the song itself This song with its multiple layers and traces of classic rock causes one to notice a new angle with every listening experience What I really liked about this song is the almost Marilyn Manson esque

  • Album Review: “Back Against The World” by Brandon Lee
    Flipping on to the other side they would get a poster Back Against The World had ingeniously designed one that was not only user friendly and interactive but also a momento Back Against The World is Brandon s debut album and the effort he and his band drummer Er Chow Kiat who proudly endorses Yamaha drums and heartbeat drumsticks bassist and acoustic guitarist Stuart Wee electric and acoustic guitarist Mark John Hariman backup vocals and fellow guitarist Gerald Chan has put in in the process of creating this album certainly paid off Title track Back Against The World is one of the best songs on the album in my opinion Brimming with self confidence and the strength to go against status quo the song felt like a liberation of sorts from the confinements of the social system With lyrics like Say I m not running away I ll tear the foundation of this place So join me shoulder to shoulder back against the back against the world the meaning of the song is hard to ignore Nothing Left was a refreshing change from Brandon s usual style The song starts with Brandon s vocals with a guitar accompaniment before slowly going on a crescendo into the climax of the song featuring the full band once again This 4 02 minute track will have any listener feeling the pain and melancholy Brandon was trying to convey through the tune Tracks on this album were mostly written and composed by Brandon save The Nomad which was written by guitarist Mark Fellow Singaporean singer songwriter Vanessa Faith lent her vocal chaps to this album in Only One Only One was produced and mixed with the goal of minimalism Featuring Brandon s vocals this song talks about feeling alone in one s quest to
