Múm, Wavves & Shelves is coming to town!
Indie music fans, you are in for a triple-treat this June!
Coming your way to Zouk on the 15th at 8pm, Singapore’s very own indie rockers, Shelves, Icelandic experimental outfit, Múm, and California surf rock band, Wavves, will be taking the stage! Be prepared for a stupendous night of fantastic music from local indie rock to San Diego sunny punk anthems and the sublime sound of Iceland’s finest!
Kicking off the show will be Shelves, who is known for their powerful pop-rock tracks which will get you pumped up for the show with their beat beat beat! (and the bop bop bop!) The fun-loving quartet is the perfect opening band for Wavves as they have mentioned that the band was one of their music influences. Shelves’ debut album in early 2012 was warmly received with The Straits Times calling it a “crisp distillation of early 1990s scuzzy-fuzzy American collegiate rock and feel-good sentiments.”
Next up, Nathan Williams and crew will spread some california lovin’ in the air with the noisy, apathetic surf rock sounds of Wavves. Described by Pitchfork as “vocal hooks [which] come fast, usually propelled by titanic drumbeats nicked from 1960s girl group music,” Wavves’ tracks nevertheless possess “thrilling evidence of compelling, thoughtful craftsmanship.” Well, expect catchy and repetitive grunge tunes and headbanging because Wavves will be packing a punch!
And finally to cool the night off, the lovely superband, Múm, will grace the stage with their hauntingly beautiful melodies. The band started out in 1997 and are known for producing experimental music that is rich in electronica with a touch of Iceland’s innocence. Múm has received much international success after the release of their 2002 album, ‘Finally We Are No One’, and the track ‘We Have A Map of Piano’ was featured in the Hollywood movie ‘Wicker Park’ that starred Josh Harnett in 2004. The band is often compared wit their fellow countrymen, Sigur Rós, who also plays atmospheric rock music. We are sure that Múm will bound to enthrall us as the closing act of the night faster than we can say, “Green Grass of Tunnel”!
