Riot !n Magenta returns to the Esplanade Concourse stage with a new member and a preview of songs from their yet-to-be-released debut album. Weaving together the powerhouse vocals of Eugenia Yip, the mellow synths of Hayashida Ken, as well as the tight, precise melodies and rhythms of Khairyl Hashim (guitar), Ferry (guitar) Sulaiman Supian (bass) and Ritz Ang (drums), the sextet released their debut EP, R3BOOT, at Esplanade Recital Studio in 2013.
Known for their distinctive soulful melodies lined with edgy, rhythmic beats, the group crystallises the diverse musical elements of electronic, trip hop and soul into smooth synth tracks. As artists seeking to constantly reinvent themselves, they are driven by their desires to explore and blur the conventional boundaries of sound.
Riot !n Magneta has been invited to grace the stages of St Jerome's Laneway Festival and Baybeats. The band has supported acts such as CHRVCHES and Circa Waves.
