It began in summer 2011, when a group of five started writing songs based on concepts engendered in their minds, but which had failed to break the surface despite having played music for some time.

That was the birth of Amnesia Haze, an alternative rock quintet that is equally adept with crunchy guitar tones as it is with ambient soundscapes helmed by gentle vocal layers. Like their name suggests, their songs aim to meander you through a diversity of influences, with inspirations ranging from strained relationships, to sci-fi impressions of dystopia.

With a sound that has been described as having its roots in 90s alternative rock, with dashes of post punk and psychedelia thrown in for good measure, the band has been hard at work in the studio, shuttling between the rigours of college and the ebb and flow of being a Singaporean band. Most recently, the band had the privilege of being selected for the prestigious Noise Singapore (2012) Mentorship Programme, with local musician Daniel Sassoon as their mentor.

A full-length record is currently in the works, slated for a release in the later half of 2012, with the ideas behind each song sure to captivate through their complexity. Watch this space.

The band will be playing at Hood Bar on the 11th of February 9pm, and at the Esplanade (Waterfront Stage) on the 3rd of March 8pm. Show them some love!
