Directed by Scott Frank Starring Liam Neeson, Dan Stevens, Boyd Holbrook, Sebastian Roche
Actor Liam Neeson’s third act has been defined by his role in Taken – the invincible, grizzled man of action on a mission – which he duly reprised in other action movies like Unknown, The Grey and Non Stop to great effect. In this respect, this crime drama is no different.
Certainly #sgindie quintet The Psalms gives that impression. Consisting of Kye, Isyraf, Mish’aal, 1G, Suhaili, there is a palpable excitement whenever one listens to this bewildering offbeat widescreen music which can be loosely defined by the absurd descriptor of “jazz metal”!
The debut full length – People Eating People – is an endless wonder of surprises and inverted expectations where groovy dissonance becomes tangible. Listening is believing, for sure. Check out the band’s album launch on 10th January at the Esplanade Outdoor Theatre where People Eating People will be in sale.
