Math rock band Sine releases debut EP [Singapore]
Current local university students, Yeo Chai Jing, Tan Yiren Eugene, and Marcus Goh form the face of Sine. Being part of the 2017 Noise Music Mentorship, Sine has gained invaluable advice as a noise mentee under the guidance of Martin Kong from Caracal. Drawing influence from Toe, Tricot, and Chon, their music can be described as a blend of math rock, progressive rock, and post-punk.
The Average of Everything is a five-track powerhouse that is reflective of the range of the band’s influences, from math rock to progressive, metal and jazz.
The EP tells a story of how the band decided to dive into its experimental roots, where each track is intentionally recorded to sound different from one another and is characterised by different subgenres of rock. Despite these differences in subgenres, the band’s unique sound is still evident in every track.
The result is an EP where each song feels like a chapter in a book, yet each chapter is tied to the common theme of the band’s sound.
In addition, Sine will celebrate the release of the EP with a show on May 11, 2018 at LITHE HOUSE from 7pm onwards, with supporting acts Terrestrea and Trust The Chaos. Tickets will be on sale at the door.
