Subsonic Eye are heading back to the live stage.
Ahead of their first US tour this June, the Singaporean indie band are holding a live fundraiser concert, Subsonic Eye and Friends, this 13 May 2022 at Gateway Theatre. Presented by Bandwagon Live, the ‘Cosmic Realignment’ act will also be joined by fellow local acts Sobs and Cosmic Child.
This comes as Subsonic Eye’s return to live performances since their album launch showcase in February 2021, and also serves as Bandwagon‘s first live concert since IV of Spades‘ concert in November 2019.
Tickets for Subsonic Eye and Friends will go on sale on 17 March 2022 at 1 PM SGT via Bandwagon Asia. Early bird tickets will be priced at SGD 30 while standard tickets are priced at SGD 40.
Since their formation in 2017, Subsonic Eye has grown to be one of Singapore’s most prolific indie bands. Comprising Daniel (guitar), Wahidah (vocals), Spencer (bass), Lucas (drums), and Jared (guitar), the noise rock act creates music that radiates a sense of warmth and serenity, contrasting their vivid stories of ecological grief and adolescent anger.
Most recently, the band released their first Malay EP Dijangka / Matahari which explores the romantic relationship between Daniel and Wahidah, marking the first step of Subsonic Eye’s new creatively organic approach to music-making. The EP follows their recent album Nature of Things that they describe as a conceptual 9-track journey of coming to terms with your place on earth.
Subsonic Eye also recently made history as the first Southeast Asian act to be featured on Live At Home by KEXP, the acclaimed Seattle-based indie rock radio station.
Also performing at Subsonic Eye and Friends are bedroom pop trio Sobs, who comprise Subsonic Eye’s Jared on guitar as well as Celine (vocals) and Raphael (guitars). Since their debut EP Catflap, the band have gained a cult following for their dreamy and introspective pop sound.
Cosmic Child will also be rocking the stage, engulfing the audience in their signature haze-like indie-rock soundscape. The band—which is made up of Bo (vocals, guitar), Daniel (guitar), Joanne (bass, vocals), Zhe Ren (synths), and Genieve (drums)—are most known for tracks ‘Girl from Mars’ and ‘Cats, Cats and Cats Again’.
