THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES

We've only just managed to slowly come round from last night's sold-out show because you all have been simply amazing, and there's just too many things to be grateful about.

So really, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you for your support. Thanks for having faith and sticking with us, right from when we released Ariel over a year ago, up till PAIRS, and hopefully, for many more songs to come. 

Special shout out to:

  • Our families for their never-ending care and concern.
  • Annie, Boey, Eunice, Felicia, and Jane for putting up with our absence, and us constantly replying Take Two messages on Whatsapp even when we're with you. Love you all to bits <3
  • Roland Lim, Marlon Ingle, and Dino Ong of Sync Studios. Thanks for always hearing our ideas out, and giving us super constructive feedback on the music, songwriting, and arrangement. And especially Roland for working his ass off despite his back/neck pain. Get well soon!!!!
  • Lyla, our social media manager. Peng Sing may have died doing social media if it wasn't for you.
  • Keith Chia, our visuals guy. We're not the most good-looking people so at least you now have something else to watch during our show!
  • Photographers Witono Halim, KennethL, Teo, Lyla, Lufthi - that eye of yours really helped a lot in making us look wayyyy cooler than we actually do
  • Mike Wong and SNAP Productions for making all those killer MVs and putting up with our nonsense.
  • National Arts Council, for helping us finance this EP project. You guys have no idea how much the government is doing to give our local arts and music scene a boost, from providing us with grants, to linking us up with industry professionals.

And to all those who've given us encouragement, offered their help and support along the way, or simply showed up to watch us - last night's successful launch belongs to you as much as it belongs to us. Thanks for the memories!

As we head over to Beijing next week, thoughts of you people will keep us warm during the chilly nights. We'll also be using this blog as a main channel of communication, since we can't access Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter, so watch this space!

Cover Art Closeup

Happy Saturday everyone! A shot of our PAIRS cover art up close. We worked with Marcus from @paradigmdrift to really bring out the key themes of "duality" and "opposing pairs". Five planets, each representing a song from the EP and a member of the band, orbiting an "icosahedral" (Google it, it's cool shiz).

Beyond being just a pun on the band name, PAIRS is also the story of our lives: one could say that it's balancing work in the day and music at night, symbolized by an opposing pair, the sun and the moon, but it's really so much more. Really hope to see everyone at the launch of PAIRS on 18th April at Aliwal Arts Centre!!

New Beginnings & 'PAIRS' EP Launch Updates

And so, after much deliberation, we decided to get our own proper website up. It's designed to be a simple one-stop information source for all our upcoming shows and new music for Take Two, in case anyone missed one of our social media updates.

The band's insanely busy with preparations for the EP launch currently. We'd never imagine that it'll be so much work. Musicians should just focus on playing music right? Nope. (All the lies that we've been told by the industry...) The main focus of the 'PAIRS' show isn't so much of reaching out to new fans (although that would be nice), but more towards thanking YOU GUYS for your support over the past 1.5 years. Those times where we were just a bunch of bored college kids jamming in a grungy band studio.

And now that we're starting to get a bit of traction with our music, the first thing we want to do, is to give something back to you, and the 'PAIRS' EP launch show is our little big act of gratitude for each and every single one of you who have been showing up at our shows, sending us encouragement, liking/sharing our stuff. That's what keeps us going!
