DEERHOOF (USA) + THE TREES AND THE WILD (ID) LIVE IN SINGAPORE!
TICKETS STILL AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR FOR $45!
Figure8 Agency brings Deerhoof and The Trees And The Wild back to Singapore for a double-bill treat that’s sure to beat any other throwback Thursday! After winning over our hearts at UpToTheSky Festival in 2011, San Francisco-based Deerhoof are stomping their way back here in the midst of an Asian tour, bringing along their catchy, riotous brand of indie noise pop that manages to seamlessly blend the cute with the sinister. Hailing from the West Javanese city of Bekasi, The Trees And The Wild have also been summoned to deliver their entrancing, experimental post-rock that carries a distinctively Indonesian folk undercurrent. With both acts lauded for their unique sound and phenomenal live shows, Deerhoof and The Trees And The Wild promise you party animals a massive dose of midweek musical mayhem.
Deerhoof (San Francisco, USA)
“Satomi Matsuzaki plays bass and sings, Greg Saunier plays drums, John Dieterich and Ed Rodriguez play guitars. But what is Deerhoof really? Hell if we know. Pitchfork went so far as to label Deerhoof as "the best band in the world." The New York Times described them as "one of the most original rock bands to have come along in the last decade." From their humble beginnings as an obscure San Francisco noise act, they've become one of indie music's most influential bands with their ecstatic and unruly take on pop.”

The Trees and The Wild (Bekasi, Indonesia)
“Indonesia’s The Trees and the Wild have a sound that can tie your brain up in knots while you try to classify it, but it will always sooth your ears and lift your spirit. Frontman Remedy Waloni once described his band as “somber tropical”. The music is really more ethereal than somber. The tropical feeling is definitely there, but, again, it’s hard to pin down. Maybe it’s in the gentleness of their melodies. Their dreamy moments are soft and caressing like warm air and warm water and there’s more to them than their name that seems close to nature. There’s also the complex and organic texture in their music and the patience that reveals itself in each song.”
