5th May 2016: The OBS: A Singapore Story Documentary Screening + Album Showcase at The Bee, Publika.
After the Q&A session, The Observatory took to the stage.
Art rock, experimental and electronica, apparently. As I’m not too familiar with the genres I’d say Radiohead comes to mind.
I’d first heard of Leslie Low, bandleader, on the Junk Vol 2 CD. His mellotron on All Things New was an instant favorite.
The music with the band was harder, though.
The documentary was eye-opening – it started with the history of the Singapore music scene (or lack thereof) due to government clampdown.
How ironic it is now that international bands play there and not here, even if we promise you can mosh and crowdsurf here.
One more of this otai and his shiny guitar.
