These Singaporean lads have certainly taken the infusion of rock n roll, pop and psychedelic to another level. With their unpretentiously hyperactive style, the energetic quartet has brought back the classic sound of 60’s Malay pop-yeh-yeh on its boat to the present time with a slight modern local twist in it. Savoring the tunes of this band is not easy to resist for the abundant dose of rejoiced and easy-going sentiments, which are easy to the ears.
Right down to their getup and haircut, these 60s Malay pop-yeh-yeh / surf revivalists have been at it for the past 4 years, and don’t stray too far away from their influences from that era (eg Siglap Five).
Although it was written in 2007, it was re-recorded and re-released a couple of weeks ago, “Sunshine” gives you a reason to break out that slim fit batik shirt and bell bottoms, dust off your rusty Vespa and pick up that lovely fox in the red kebaya.
