Take Two are a Singaporean indie band, described as "one of the most exhilarating new acts to emerge from the burgeoning indie-pop scene of recent years". They have won the 2014 NOISE Singapore Prize and describe themselves as "a sonic combination of ... indie rock, and a smattering of jazz an RnB".

An indie band to keep an eye on

Take Two are a Singaporean Indie/Alternative band whom I was lucky enough to watch at a recent Music Matters Live performance in Clarke Quay. Truth be told, I had never heard of them before that day, however after a look at the setlist for who was on that night and a quick listen on Spotify, I was pleasantly surprised. When there are a million and one indie bands around, it’s really refreshing to find one with songs that actually stick in your head, and having them be local is also a nice bonus.

Their performance wasn’t awe inspiring, but they’re a recently formed band playing in a bar with a rubbish sound system, so that was always going to be unlikely. It was nice to put faces to the sound, and when listening to them live it was a lot clearer to hear who they get their inspiration from. There was a clear Two Door Cinema Club feel to their music, yet they still managed to make a generic genre sound like their own.

They’ve got a way to come in focusing their sound and making it that bit more original, but I loved listening to their music and watching them live. It will be interesting to see where they are in a year or so, and I hope that they go far.
