Singaporean indie rock band Subsonic Eye have released their newest single ‘Fruitcake’ today (December 18).
The track, now available on all streaming platforms, is the second cut released from their upcoming third album ‘Nature of Things’. Its closing track ‘Unearth’ dropped last month alongside an animated visual.
The rousing post-punky anthem takes on a trance-like quality thanks to dense, overlapping guitars and insistent percussion rounded out with vocalist Nur Wahidah’s spunky delivery. “She’s a trainwreck / Nailed to ideas / Can’t break out again”, she opens on the track.
Listen to ‘Fruitcake’ below:
‘Fruitcake’ is the third track on ‘Nature Of Things’, the dream pop band’s third full-length album due out January 15, 2021. It follows their sophomore album ‘Dive Into’ in 2018 and their debut album ‘Strawberry Feels’ in 2017.
The new album will contextualise their previous output, the band said in a press statement: “Our old songs were gibberish, but our new songs give meaning to them.”
To mark the album’s release, Subsonic Eye will also play a special 75-minute live set at the Esplanade Concert Hall on February 6, where they will preview the new record as well as revisit choice cuts from their past releases. Tickets are available at $25, and audience capacity is limited to 250 persons. More details can be found here.
The band have remained active this year in spite of pandemic lockdowns, releasing a six-track EP ‘Bedroom Sessions’ to fundraise for TWC2, a non-profit that aids migrant labourers in Singapore. Just last month, they also made a live-streamed appearance at Baybeats, Singapore’s longest-running alternative music festival.
