Singapore hardcore band Obstacle Upsurge release fullset live video – set starts with SOIA cover

Singapore hardcore band Obstacle Upsurge release fullset live video – set starts with a sick old school SOIA cover and then goes into a special track off the band’s EP entitled Fairytales. What you’ll see is that the band invites 2 young children to come on stage to sing the beginning of this track before the band busts into the full song. The two children are guitarist Malis’ children. According to bassist Anvea, Malis had written the song for the children of Palestine and Syria. The song was also a way to bring more awareness to the plight of children suffering the world over.

For those unfamiliar, Obstacle Upsurge has been around since 1993 and are Singapore’s first all girl hardcore band. As mentioned above, they released an EP earlier this year which is streaming further below. The EP was released on Anvea’s record label Lithe Records also out of Singapore who has been releasing a slew of stellar records: https://litherecords.bandcamp.com/
