… still there’s more …
Singer-songwriter Maricelle is currently on a tour of North Asia and she kindly agreed to keep us posted on her adventures with the Atlas Tour Diary. Here’s the latest update.
Fronted by Cherie Ko and Ted Dore, TOMGIRL is a dark-noir rock duo based in Singapore/Melbourne. The band has been working on the album for the past one year and it’s finally done! The first single “Darker Now” was released July 1 together with a music video. And there’s more.
All things must pass. But this is not the end of the journey. Deon Toh shares with us his final thoughts on his Tokyo tour.
The tour is done but there are still one or two updates coming in from Deon Toh.
Breaking News: GigOut! is an official partner for Summersonic Festival 2016!
Latest update from Deon Toh in Tokyo.
Thus far, we’ve played at three different venues in Tokyo. It has been a real eye opener. Each venue brings a different vibe, and they specialise in different genres. We are lucky to carry the indie rock/pop flag; which has been suitable for the venues so far.
Day Two of Baybeats Open Stage was just as thrilling and satisfying as Day One as eight more artists demonstrated that there is immense promise and potential within the Singapore music scene.
Another day, another update from Deon Toh from Japan!
Deon Toh is back with more thoughts about his time in the Land of the Rising Sun…
Support. When touring, my group tries our best to research on Singaporean music acts performing within our vicinity. We’ve played to venues packed with strangers cheering for encores; and also played quieter shows in venues with a little less than 10 people. Singaporean support remains valuable in foreign territory – whether it is to assist other acts with their merchandise sales, transport, loaning and sharing of equipment, or just to add warm bodies to the crowd; having a touch of home can make or break performances, and have a drastic effect on tours.
One day away! Two more artists you should check out!!
Missives from Deon Toh, now on tour in Tokyo. Here’s the first one …
There’s a myriad of reasons why music acts choose to tour; there are also reasons why music acts choose to tour for longer or shorter periods. I’m not going to pretend to know all of them, but what I can share with you are the unique experiences that my band and I soak in.
Two more acts for your Baybeats Open Stage enjoyment!

Singer-songwriter Maricelle is currently on a tour of North Asia and she kindly agreed to keep us posted on her adventures with the Atlas Tour Diary. Here’s the first instalment.
New Singapore bands that caught my ear recently – still raw and unpolished but potential nonetheless.
I firmly believe that in order to thrive, the Singapore music scene must place its bets on original music and build its own culture and community, something unique that can travel beyond Singapore.
Founding members of pop-rock band, Doves and Ravens, Kenneth Qua and Edwin Wong, became instant friends in 2010 over a shared love for music. Now, joined by bassist Moses Wong, the band plays pop-rock, radio-friendly music influenced by 80’s/90’s music. Wonder is the band’s debut album.
Doves & Ravens presents Wonder LIVE!, as the pop-rock outfit launches its debut album, Wonder.
Back in 2015, we reviewed the Swervedriver comeback album, I Wasn’t Born To Lose You.
“Yet another welcome 90s rock reunion. Though frontman Adam Franklin has been delivering competent 90s-channeling modern rock for some time now, it’s a pleasure to have the shoegaze pioneers back together and doing what they do best. Essential for all post-punk revivalist hipsters.”
After the appearances of British dream-pop rockers Slowdive and Ride to enthusiastic audiences, it makes sense for the reformed Swervedriver to come our way as well. Especially when today’s youngsters revere the modern-day post-punk revival bands you’d find at Laneway or Neon Lights.
Date: 15th June
Venue: Hood Bar & Cafe
Our very own Cosmic Child provides the support.
