‘MURDER KILL BABY’ EP by Obedient Wives Club

owc3

Obedient Wives Club got us swooning when they first released the eponymous EP back in 2012. And they are back now! Better and stronger, with their second EP – MURDER KILL BABY. The five brand new tracks will walk you down the memory lane.

The EP kicks off with happy, rhythmic and upbeat ‘Murder Kill Baby’ that had us grooved involuntarily to the melodic tunes. Three minutes later, we were introduced to ‘Razor Wire Love Song’, followed by ‘Requiem for a Lover’ – melancholy paired with nostalgia, perfectly executed with an added element of the keyboard played by the vocalist, YinQi. Any broken-hearted can surely seek solace in this one. The other two tracks ‘Stay Perfect’ and ‘Thousand Years / Broken Heart’ complete MURDER KILL BABY.

Don’t mess with the quintet for they mean serious business. Keith, Sulaiman and the gals have proven to be a thriving band in our shores having played in countless gigs and not too long ago, they took the stage in Fred Perry’s 60th anniversary. It is perhaps the raw originality, creativity, and the tremendous work and effort that entice us to the music they produced. Or possibly, it’s the lyrics that are shrouded in mystery.

It won’t be long before they became better known in our region, and far away from the shores of Singapore. Until then, I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed.

Food For The Soul

‘Everyone deserves something special’ – This statement becomes bolder and louder when it comes to weekends. Most of us have been working hard on weekdays, be it in school or at work, and we ought to give ourselves credit for that.

So take a moment now (just 2min 45sec) and bask yourself in the brilliance of this tune.

Close your eyes, dim the lights, sit back and enjoy.

CHAINED

I watched you breathe in
And I wished you’d stop
Only for long enough
Long enough

It’s
Hard
To
Say

Separate or combine
I ask you
One last time
Did I hold you too tight
Did I not let enough light in

Oooh-oooh-oooh
Oooh-oooh-oooh
Oooh-oooh-oooh
Oooh-oooh-oooh

If a feeling appears
If your mind should sway
It’s not a secret you should keep
I won’t let you slip away

We used to be closer than this
We used to be closer than this
We used to get closer than this
Is it something you miss

We used to be closer than this
We used to be closer than this
We used to get closer than this
Is it something you miss

Winged or chained
I ask you
Would you have stayed
Did I hold you too tight
Did I not let enough light in

Oooh-oooh-oooh
Oooh-oooh-oooh
Oooh-oooh-oooh
Oooh-oooh-oooh

Obedient Wives Club

‘Obedient Wives Club’, as its name suggests, is definitely not a club that teaches wives to be obedient, or anything close. Quit guessing already as you might never get it right, so allow me to give you hints. There are five members in the ‘club’, their weapon of choice are guitars, drums, microphones, and sometimes keyboards. You get it now? Good.

They have been creating waves in the Singapore music scene with their fuzzed out sound ever since it was started out in September 2011 by Keith Tan (Guitarist), who later brought in YinQi Lee as the band’s vocalist. You’ll be enchanted by her singing, just like many other happy victims who went to their gigs. The band was completed by Sulaiman Supian (Bassist), Lennat Mak (Drummer), and Cherie Ko the second guitarist.

Keith has an addiction to the likes of Best Coast, Dum Dum Girls, Frankie Rose and The Outs, and it’s no wonder ‘Obedient Wives Club’ adopted lo-fi Spectorgaze as their music DNA. Have a listen at them, let the music enters your ears, flows through your body, and stirs up your emotions. It’s nutrition for your soul.

And did I mention they have a mission? That is “to bring fuzzed out girl group indie pop that is missing from the Singapore indie scene.” I say mission accomplished! Toast to that!
