The Observatory are an evolving, shape-shifting outfit, that's for sure. And with their latest live venture, it's not surprising that they're challenging themselves yet again.
The fearsome four-piece have revealed that they will play with a 30-piece guitar ensemble that, as they put it, will feature "an extended performance of intensity and solidarity, vibrations of shifting rhythms, synth bass space, oscillators and abused guitars, with repetition and urgency at the heart of their riff." The show forms as the closing event for the annual NUS Arts Festival 2017.
The best part? The band promises to perform a brand new song, and as we've stated before, we won't be surprised if we see a new album from the prolific group before the year ends.
The ensemble is GENUS, or the NUS Guitar Ensemble, and they will perform with The Observatory on March 25th at the University Cultural Centre, located within the main NUS campus at Kent Ridge.
General tickets are priced at SG$27, but students can enter the venue at only SG$19. Limited tickets are available here.
Attendees are advised to get your tickets ASAP because this will likely be the last time The Obs performs this year before going on hiatus.
