Tricks & Cider are launching their debut eponymous EP on 30 April 2013.
The first single, "Girl From Outer Space", is a rock anthem, which will take you to the down-tempo acoustic grooves of "House By A Hill". There will also be something for video game fans, in a love song from gamer geeks everywhere: "Superstar".
The band's varied style of easy listening scrumpy-pop is a medley of Tricks & Cider's musical background of broadway-steeped sensibilities, music school nerds and hip-hop DJing.
The series of gigs to promote the EP will kick-off with an intimate shophouse show that will include These Brittle Bones (aka Chris Jones) and Esther Low as opening acts. This will happen at 7.15pm on Tuesday, 30 April, at 52A Prinsep Street, #02-01, Prinsep Place, Singapore 188683.
This will be followed by live performances at the Esplanade Outdoor Theatre on Friday, 3 May. The band will be playing three sets at 7.30pm, 8.45pm and 10.00pm, with plenty of popular covers worked in, infused with the band's unique flavour.
The Prinsep Place shophouse gig is planned to be interactive with the audience. Three giant balloons filled with confetti with Tricks & Cider's lyrics will be bounced to the audience, who is encouraged to uncover more of the songs through discovering the lyrics within. The audience will also stand to win physical copies of the band's EP.

We can finally reveal this little secret!
Last Friday, we posted a crossword puzzle for you to solve regarding a secret pop up gig that was going to happen today.
Fuzz pop quintet Obedient Wives Club and international pop trio Bored Spies will be playing a secret pop-up double bill show tonight April 18, 8pm at Night & Day Bar.
Formed in 2011, Obedient Wives Club has been blazing the local circuit with the release of their debut self-titled EP in 2011 and their sophomore follow-up EP, Murder Kill Baby, on February 15, 2012. Press reviews have been encouragingly positive with Today saying "The real forward development is in the songwriting department. One might say that Obedient Wives Club has matured to the point where it fulfills the promise suggested by the 'Spectorgaze' genre it coined,” while Straits Times Life! calls the EP “refreshingly un-ironic” and observes that “the band bare bruised souls and expect total salvation in return.”
Currently based in Singapore, Seoul and Arizona, international pop trio Bored Spies is a band of mystery and intrigue. Inspired by the likes of Brian Eno, the band mixes traditional song structures with progressive rock elements, exploring the space between pop and abstract minimalism. The trio has released their debut single “Summer 720” (A-side) alongside “沙鼠E” in digital format earlier in January this year, and will be releasing the single as a Record Store Day 7” vinyl exclusive on April 20. Come May, the band will also be making their live festival debut at Primavera Sound Festival with a string of Spain and UK dates and a tentative US tour planned for August 2013. Pre-production has commenced for a full- length album due later this year.
With Obedient Wives Club taking a short break to concentrate on their solo projects and Bored Spies heading overseas for their Spain/UK tour, the bands have decided to come together for a secret pop- up gig on April 18, which will be held at Night & Day Bar, situated on the second floor of a 1950s art deco building along Selegie Road.
Date: 18 April 2013
Venue: Night & Day (139 Selegie Road)

Australian garage rockers Dune Rats are heading to Singapore for a gig on 31 May 2013.
The Brisbane duo will be bringing their raucous and energetic live show to Singapore at Night & Day Bar, alongside local garage pop favourites The Pinholes. The long-haired skater punks are known for their bratty, reckless and surprisingly melodic surf-rock sound, and you can expect that their live shows give ten times the energy. The boys are out for a good time, and they’re intent on giving one as well.
The show is brought to you by Other Sounds.
Date: Friday 31 May 2013
Venue: Night & Day Bar (139 Selegie Road Singapore 188309)
Entry: $15 at the door (includes one drink)
