Check out our first taste of the Tricks & Cider EP which will be launched next Tuesday during an intimate shophouse show at Prinsep Place.
The band is made up of three gals and a guy, and some of them quit their day jobs to focus solely on their music; Victoria Ho (lead vocals and guitar) used to write for The Business Times, Dawn Ho (bass guitar) is a lawyer, Karen Lee (backing vocals, violin and keyboard) used to work for P&G and DDB, and David Liu (drums) is an award-winning filmmaker.
Thanks to the band, we have EPs to giveaway to 3 of our lucky Singapore-based readers . All you have to do is email firstname.lastname@example.org before 30 April 2013.
(from the press release)
The band’s varied style of easy listening scrumpy-pop is a medley of Tricks & Cider’s musical background of broadway-steeped sensibilities, music school nerds and hip-hop DJing.
The first single, Girl From Outer Space, is a rock anthem, which will take you to the down-tempo acoustic grooves of House By A Hill. There’ll also be something for video game fans, in a love song from gamer geeks everywhere: Superstar.
The Prinsep Place shophouse gig is planned to be interactive with the audience. Three giant balloons filled with confetti with Tricks & Cider’s lyrics will be bounced to the audience, who is encouraged to uncover more of the songs through discovering the lyrics within. The audience will also stand to win physical copies of the band’s EP.
The EP launch will happen at 7.15pm on April 30, at 52A Prinsep Street, #02-01, Prinsep Place. Opening acts include These Brittle Bones (Chris Jones) and Esther Low . You can also catch the band at the Waterfront @ The Esplanade on May 3 where they will be playing three sets at 7.30pm, 8.45pm and 10.00pm.
