LANEWAY SINGAPORE 2016 BREAKDOWN: CHEATS, CHVRCHES & DIIV

Laneway2016

With the new year beckoning, Laneway Singapore 2016 is weeks away and Power of Pop gives you the lowdown on the TWENTY-ONE artists who will grace the occasion on 30th January (in alphabetical order).

CHEATS

Laneway organisers have done a solid here with the inclusion of top regional indie pop bands and the selection of Filipino outfit Cheats bears this out. A nine-member outfit with distinctive girl-boy vocals and infectious pop songs, Cheats are primed for anyone looking for a good festival time!

Recommended for — twentysomething indie pop lovers.

CHVRCHES

Fan favourites in Singapore due to well received performances (both in 2014), CHVRCHES returns to Laneway Singapore with their beloved indie-electro-pop style. With singer Lauren Mayberry providing a strong front presence, expect the trio to be a top draw at the Festival. Meaning – get to the stage early to ‘chope’ your gawking privilege!

Recommended for — twentysomething indie pop lovers.

DIIV

If you are a young indie pop loving hipster, then DIIV (pronounced “Dive”) is what passes for ‘rock’ for you. In truth, it’s fairly reliable and heavily modelled on 90s alternative rock – in particular the British ‘shoegaze’ movement viz Ride, Chapterhouse, Swervedriver, Slowdive etc. Good music for a picturesque sunset.

Recommended for — indie rock lovers of all ages.
