Tucked in between dark beats, deft lyricism and immersive vocals lies Singaporean indie-electronic duo .gif. Made up of weish and din, the pair started out in late 2012 as a passion project and shared hobby.
Following their debut of ‘saudade’ EP in 2013, the band has performed in London, Manila, KL and Jakarta, and at major festivals such as St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival, Singapore Inside Out, Singapore Writers Festival, Java Soundsfair, Baybeats, and Singapore Night Festival.
The duo have earned critical comparisons to the likes of Portishead, Little Dragon, Björk, and The xx through both local and international publications like Thump, VICE’s music channel, FasterLouder, Earmilk, Indie Shuffle, JUICE, Nylon, and Bandwagon. The pair often draws from literature, theatre and film in their music, and have most recently launched a critically acclaimed full-length album, ‘soma’.
