CROSSING SEAS is more than a mathematical riddle of time signatures; it promises an experience of flavours across the spectrum - expect aural delights with notes of blues, jazz, funk, a hearty dose of post-rock, progressive rock, and even post-punk. For one evening only, journey with these three gems of Asia, as we bring you through the light and airy, to ground breaking heavy.
First in the line up, math rock trio Elephant Gym 大象體操 debuts in Singapore, as the last stop of their Asia 2014 Tour!
The bass-driven band from southern Taiwan's Kaohsiung, its album "Angle" and the songs on the album have been nominated for best album, best band, best rock single, best jazz single, album with the best style and single with the best style, in the 5th Golden Indie Music Awards, 2014.
--- "There is an intriguing dynamic between brother and sister, sometimes harmonising and complementing each other, other times nonchalantly wandering. Together with Tu Chia Chin’s percussion, the delivery is calm, elegant and very moving."
The music of Elephant Gym is known for clear and memorable bass line, emotional guitar riffs and melodic drumming. Most songs are instrumental. In 2013, Elephant Gym has started to invite singers to compose with them. You will be pleased to know that Enno from Chocolate Tiger 猛虎巧克力 will join the band in Singapore as guest vocalist!

NAO 孬乐队 hailing from across the causeway is no stranger to the music scene here, and makes a perfect pair-up, having shared stages with Elephant Gym in Taiwan, Malaysia, and now Singapore! It has been said that NAO is the most beautiful manifestation of a diverse mix, with key influences coming from Japan’s rich musical expression.
--- "The trio’s music is frequently a cauldron of melodies and trippy notes that would get your mind bouncing to the beat."
Straddling the line between the classic punk energy of the legendary Fugazi and today's manic metal/hardcore upstarts System Of A Down, you get the hard-hitting outfit NAO. Their musical form developed from the design theory; math-like equation rhythms encompassing a mixture of joyous melodies with a tinge of psychedelica.

Sphaeras, Singapore's very own up-and-rising was formed in July 2013 in one of the most unlikely scenarios - an army bunk. Now consisting of 4 members with diverse musical backgrounds, Sphaeras strives to reconcile differences in the varying wave lengths to produce music incorporating odd time signatures, post rock textures and full blown metal riffs all on the same plate.
--- "Sphaeras came out of nowhere and completely took us by (pleasant) surprise with their compellingly intelligent meld of post-rock and math-rock, and we couldn't help but discover new layers of sonic intricacies each time!"
