When news broke late last year that Laneway Singapore would not be going ahead in 2019, indie music fans were left heart broken. But now, there’s a reason to celebrate.
A brand new music festival, The Alex Blake Charlie Sessions, is set to make its debut on December 7 at the abandoned Pasir Panjang Power Station and features a female-fronted lineup studded with international and Singaporean acts.
These include the acclaimed Welsh avant-pop musician Cate Le Bon, Charly Bliss, Ladies of LCD Soundsystem, Kero Kero Bonito, SOAK, as well as the fearless post-punkers Goat Girl from London. Of course, the festival will aso feature two home-grown acts: the alluring electro-soul-R&B songstress Vandetta and professional DJ Ginette Chittick from the Singaporean dream-pop band Astreal. A second wave of artists is expected to be announced soon.
The day-long festival is the first project from 24OWLS, a new business collective helmed by the same folk behind the last five editions of Laneway Singapore, which skipped The Lion City this year because of programming and logistic issues.
To help get you in the festival spirit, we’ve rounded up some of our favourite songs from the artists performing at The Alex Blake Charlie Sessions which you can watch below.
The Alex Blake Charlie Sessions will be taking place on Saturday, 7 December 2019 from 10am to late at the Pasir Panjang Power Station. For more inormation visit alexblakecharlie.sg.
