Synthpop duo Cosmic Armchair release their first full-length album after a decade of music making via Belgian label, Alfa Matrix.
Some weeks back, Celina Kimble launched her new EP at the Arts House and whilst it was a fairly short set – it was full of Celina’s typically emotionally powerful songs backed by a competent band. All told, it was a solid performance by Celina and band. The word is that Celina will be selling her EP at Starbucks outlets and will be doing a couple of performances there as well. Stay tuned for more details.
Singapore electro-pop duo Cosmic Armchair has signed with Alfa Matrix, and has become the first Asian band to sign an album deal with Belgium-based in label. This collaboration with Alfa Matrix, home to international electro stars like Front 242, Recoil, Nitzer Ebb and supergroup Bruderschaft, gives the duo better access to audiences everywhere especially in Europe and America.

Good timing! Although questions arise as to why we hear excerpts of speeches from (mostly) American leaders and the video images are generalized views of Singapore. Hey! Purely rhetorical – this is Singapore, of course and this is probably the extent of expression allowed.
In any case, enjoy the video and vote wisely. But you already knew that.
