PRESS RELEASE – Concert
The White Shoes and The Couples
Company (ID), SayCet (FR) and
B-Quartet (SG) – 8 November, 2011
LaSalle College of the Arts, Main Theatre
Singapore – On the 8th of November 2011, LaSalle Main Theatre will host a
unique event in Singapore featuring three of the most innovative and original
emerging artists of the international contemporary indie music scene.
The White Shoes and The Couples Company, celebrated as one of the "best
indie pop band to call Jakarta home" by Allmusic.com will play alongside
local band B-quartet and French band SayCet to transport the audience
into a different dimension of poetic and mesmerizing soundscapes and melodies.
Formed in 2002, The White Shoes and The Couples Company blends 1960’s
Burt Bacharach-inspired melodies with winsome indie pop to create a truly
unique sound that bring us back to the 1970’s or even to the 1930’s, with
charming, distinct melodies and orchestration. Singing in both English and
Indonesian, they have been named "one of the Top 25 bands on MySpace" by
Rolling Stone, featured in Times Magazine and praised by Pitchfork.
The concert will also showcase two supporting acts including Franco-Lao
outfit SayCet, performing for the first time in Singapore.
Warmly praised by Les Inrocks and Trax, the trio plays
an unforgettable blend of experimental pop and electronica,
matched with bewitching video projections.
The second supporting act, B-Quartet is a band that defies genres in search of a unique musical language, challenging conventions from concept to composition. Rising stars of the local scene, their eclectic palette marries jazz with folk and rock accents, topped with exquisite vocal harmonies. With a spontaneous, almost telepathic energy on stage, they enchant and mesmerize audiences, winning fans wherever they go. http://www.myspace.com/bquartet
