JUICE is a huge fan of British band Wild Beasts’ dreamy, and currently synthy, indie rock — just read our album review here. Imagine our excitement when Hostess Club Weekender announced that they were heading to Singapore for the concert series’ second edition. Then imagine how much relief we felt when we found out we don’t have to spend that much dough because Upfront managed to get the band to play in KL as well! So head on down to The Bee this November to catch a highly charged performance of their new material and engulf your eardrums in an auditory waterfall of dreamy poetic melodies, tranquil rhythms, and a silky cashmere sheen of vocals that wrap around your head, polishing away the daily obligations for a moment or two. The Domino Records signees’ ambitious new album features classic electronic sounds of the ’80s and ’90s tango dancing with the fresh modern reverberation of the 21st century in tune to serene guitar, bass and synth lines, and percussion notes — and they perform with enough determination to, quoting ourselves shamelessly, “make settling down sound every bit as vibrant and nuanced as youth’s heady hedonism.”
