With all the festivals springing up all over the place in Singapore, I thought I’d indulge myself with the fantasy of organising a Power of Pop Indie Rock Festival! My only criterion would be that my acts would have to have been formed no earlier than year 2000 (with one or two exceptions of course).

Here you go!

Besnard Lakes / Free Energy / Joywave / JPNSGRLS / Kevin Tihista 

LOVE X STEREO / Max Jury / Pugwash / The Courteeners / The Decemberists  

The Disappointed / The Paranoid Style / The Whigs / TOY / White Denim

Check out the first five on the list!

Next five tomorrow!

… still there’s more …

Battles – Beach House – Big Scary – Cashew Chemists – Cheats – CHVRCHES – DIIV – East India Youth – Flume – GDJYB – Grimes – Hermitude – Hudson Mohawke – Intriguant – METZ – Purity Ring – Riot !n Magenta – Shamir – The Internet – Thundercat – Tobias Jesso Jr. – Violent Soho

Apart from Singapore artists Cashew Chemists, Intriguant and Riot !n Magenta, the only other act that is of any interest to Power of Pop is pop-rock revivalist Tobias Jesso Jr. Beach House, CHVRCHES and Grimes are repeats & the rest – other than Battles and Flume – are of an unknown quality. But that’s the whole point of the Laneway Festival innit? Stay tuned as Power of Pop gives these artists its discovery quotient in the next few days, weeks and months.
