JUICE SINGAPORE

Consider this a heroic return. When Amateur Takes Control sheathed its instruments before its three-year hiatus, the world was a different place. Since then, things have changed unbelievably.

ESQUIRE SINGAPORE

EP2 channels a band energised and refreshed, rocking out with a powerful sense of urgency through a concise four tracks. It’s a doozy, complex head-trip that veers from sounding frantic, menacing to emotional (in a great way), guided by precision and dexterity collectively.
