LITE (Japan) live in Kuala Lumpur
Formed in Tokyo in 2003, the band – Nobuyuki Takeda (guitar), Kozo Kusumoto (guitar), Jun Izawa (bass), Akinori Yamamoto (drums) – are cited as an influence by a new wave of young instrumental bands around the world. Extensive touring since their formation has won them fans in Europe, the US and beyond thanks to their intense, incendiary live performances and a steady stream of EPs and albums has firmly established them as one of the most exciting bands to have emerged from Japan in the last decade.
Amateur Takes Control (SG)
Amateur Takes Control creates music which is undeniably diverse in style and influence, yet still manages to showcase a seamlessness that justifies their identity as a group.
Inspired by the simplest of things like life, love and waking up in the morning realizing you have another day to be thankful for, ATC strives to translate these inspirations into their brand of heartfelt instrumental music.
Some musicians rely on lyrics to get their message across. Others, such as classical composers, opt words out completely, leaving music to the imagination of the listener.
Local experimental post-rock band (one of the very few) The Metaphor is one such example.
A little over two years in the making, the band boasts a small but steady fan base, having recently released its first five-track EP called “preface”.
