Previously known as While They Were Sleeping, Great Empty is a Singaporean indie rock band formed in December 2007. Consisting of Saifudin Sapari, Zuhairi Ali, Khidir Osman and Rupak George, the group plays instrumental indie rock. Their debut EP Desire the Creator was released on March 25.

“Music is such a powerful medium to channel our deepest and most primal of emotions,” says Saifudin Sapari, the band’s spokesperson. “Our unique perspective and sonic integrity will hopefully draw people to realize that we are genuine in our approach and we aim to make a lasting impression on the global sphere of music,” he adds.

The band’s music is available for free download, and physical copies can be pre-ordered on the site. A limited run of the six-track CDEP is available along with exclusive artwork and illustration.
