The Dada Record: The Great Spy Experiment

Hi, we are The Great Spy Experiment! Our music has been described as ‘a champagne-fuelled orgy of power-pop, indie, rock and dance, informed by everything except J-Lo’. As much guitar-led as it is beat-driven, with indie riffs juxtaposing irresistible pop hooks, and dance textures overlaying dance-able rock-grooves, our music is created with the dance-floor in mind and the bedroom at heart. Though only two-years old and with only an independently-released single to our name, we have played numerous gigs here and abroad. Highlights include the Baybeats, ZoukOut and SingFest festivals here in Singapore, the South-by-Southwest Festival and the San Antonio Indie Fest in Austin and San Antonio, Texas as well as an appearance at Central Park, New York. On 3 September, we released our debut album, “Flower Show Riots”. Welcome to The Flower Show!

Le Disko by Shiny Toy Guns
80’s New Wave, Electronica and Synth Punk just do it for me. This song gets me singing and dancing every time I listen to it. It is currently on loop mode on my iPod. “We’re gonna dance on fire. We’re the girls Le Disko. Supersonic Overdrive.” Oh by the way, Carah Faye who is on synthesizer and vocalist hot! (Magdelene)

Always For You by The Album Leaf
Brilliant melancholic lyrics coupled with brilliant chord melody and structure. It’s like that clear calming feeling just before a smile. (Khairyl)

Take A Chance by The Magic Numbers
Happy music … I always like to be happy … and it’s the perfect soundtrack when I’m driving my 40 year old car. (Fandy)

505 by Arctic Monkeys
“I’m going back to 505, if it’s a 7 hour flight or a 45 minute drive, in my imagination …” Beautiful! In fact, the latest monkeys album has been on repeat mode on my iPod. (Song)

Shoebox by B-Quartet
It’s not out yet but of all their songs I’ve heard live, this one stands out and is firmly embedded in my memory. Beautiful! (Saiful)

  • The Dada Record is a great idea. I would never have listened to 505 otherwise, and that would have made my Wednesday a little less fun. Thanks Culturepushers.
