Dr. Martens has announced the homegrown bands in its first South East Asia edition of the Stand For Something Tour 2015. Headlined by British indie-rock band CIRCA WAVES, the Stand For Something Tour will be joined by respective home-city bands: Riot !n Magenta in Singapore, Elephant Kind in Jakarta, and Up Dharma Down in Manila.
I love R!M to death but it does seem like an odd choice to me. After all, CIRCA WAVES isn’t an electro-pop outfit and in fact, are quite possibly the opposite spectrum seeing how they play retro Britpop music. To me, it would make more sense to get Cashew Chemists or Stopgap to open… but that’s just me.
