About The Standards
Hometown: Bangkok, TH
Genres: Rock / Indie
Label: unsigned
Members: Paul, Matt , Nit , Mc and Ayu
A Thai-Brit quintet based in Bangkok, The Standards comprise of charismatic SE London native Matt Smith on vocals and Stevenage boy Paul Smith (no relation) on guitars and backing vocals. Making up the rest of the band are the Thai contingent of Manasnit Setthawong on synths, keys, backing vocals and kinky boots; Ayu Charuburana on drums and last but certainly not least, Sithikorn “Mackey” Likitvorachai on bass.

"The Standards, one of the region’s fastest rising indie groups".
—  Cod Satrusayang, CNN
"They’re loud, they’re feisty and judging by the collection of cool songs at their disposal, nicely poised to give the regional indie scene a long overdue shake up."
—  Robin Banks, KOKOAsia.com
“A hit on the indie circuit, these guys are, for many, knights in shining armor come to rescue what’s become a bleak, mundane Thai music scene”
—  Manta Klangboonkrong, The Nation
"They're indie, they're electronic, they're sex and they're rock and roll."
—  Adam Purcell, Big Chilli Magazine
