DIRTY BEACHES (CA) live in Singapore
Other Sounds is excited to announce the Singapore debut of Canadian lo-fi musician Dirty Beaches, who will be bringing his genre-hopping noise to Singapore on Wednesday, 16 April 2014.
Dirty Beaches, AKA Alex Zhang Hungtai, started off as a one-man band in 2005, and has since released five albums and countless EPs; his most recent album Drifters/Love Is The Devil chronicles his life on the road over the past two years and follows him down the rabbit hole of heartbreak, rebirth, and masochistic existential self-reflection.
The trans-pacific nomad’s past releases include drone instrumentals, film scores, and a fascinating dissection of popular American music like blues, rockabilly, soul, RNB, and hip hop that are often rendered to the point where they are no longer recognizable (in the best kind of way, of course) – and as you can imagine, his live shows are just as immensely intense.
Dirty Beaches will be supported by experimental noise act Awk Wah, whose music, in the words of Alex Zhang Hungtai, “defies definition” and “encompasses multiple identities beyond any countries, culture, or border.”
