In a little over 2 years, this indie pop quintet has gone from playing covers in a dingy university dormitory, to playing for audiences in Malaysia, Thailand, Spain, and most recently for China's Midi Music Festival 2015/16 in Shenzhen. 

Quirky and candid they may be, these five boys have a serious appetite for good music.

The dulcetness of Peng Sing’s jazz-inspired guitar work is paired perfectly with David and Jeryl’s rhythmic synergy. Topped off with Paddy’s warm, soaring vocals, a sonic combination of anthemic island-pop, indie rock, with a smattering of jazz emerges.

With ears primed to take in anything across the aural spectrum - from Kimbra to The Killers, Bombay Bicycle Club to Last Dinosaurs, and some good old 90s pop – Take Two's music is the by-product of reverence for the maestros and taking to heart the élan of great pop-sensibilities.

Their debut EP “PAIRS” was lauded by JUICE Magazine to be one of the definitive Singaporean indie releases of 2015, and was described as “a sprightly debut that shines with youthful vim and vigour” by The Straits Times.

Outside of the studio, the 5 boys have went from snagging top spots in band slams all over Singapore to opening for Travis (2014), Walk The Moon (2016) and Death Cab for Cutie (2016). They also won the 2014 NOISE Singapore Mentorship Program, and have been featured regularly in regional music festivals Music Matters Live 2014 & 2015, Baybeats 2015, F1 Singapore Grand Prix 2015 & 2016, Aliwal Urban Art Festival 2016, and 2016 DBS Marina Regatta.

Always working ahead, Take Two already has major shows in the Asian gig circuit lined up for 2017 and have already begun working on their second EP, so keep your ears and eyes peeled!
