MARICELLE: THE PURSUIT LAUNCH PARTY
ESPLANADE ANNEXE STUDIO, THURSDAY 20 APRIL 2017
MARICELLE (finally) presents her Pursuit EP LIVE, Thursday 20 April 2017 at the Esplanade Annexe Studio.
Happening in the wake of nearly 350,000 Spotify plays, this Launch Party celebrates the emergence of MARICELLE in the Singapore scene, taking a leap of faith into indie pop music, and coming full circle with music written across cities and seas all over the world.
Go have a listen to the electronic Pursuit EP by MARICELLE on Spotify and iTunes, then think bigger, bolder. The show will be the debut of her 5-piece band led by music director Sano Shimano (Linying, Gentle Bones, The Good Life Project), who brings the EP to life - to larger than life.
Familiar atmospheric, anthemic quality.
New textures, new rhythms.
Greater heights and greater depths.
And new songs.
It’s all going to look and sound amazing thanks to HYPESOUND CO, THE ANIMAL KOLLECTIVE and BCUBE LIVE SOUND & PRODUCTION.
Come for drinks, and also come get your very own piece of the Pursuit EP on a limited edition engraved 4GB reusable thumbdrive.
OPENING ACT: Dru Chen
Riding on constant waves of inspiration. Redefining his influences. Fine-tuning his audio compass. Dru Chen’s tireless journey through the modern music landscape continues to mould him as a rare singer-songwriter that’s coming of age. His new compositions speak romantically of themes that encompass modern day struggles and victories. Dru plans to release his sophomore album in 2017.
A sound that evokes distant memories served up with an infusion of the old and new – indie-soul singer-songwriter Dru Chen delivers melodic odes to the inner audiophile in all of us. His music strikes up the senses with a profusion of hooks, accompanied by sensuous grooves that satisfy the mind, body and soul.
Dru Chen is grounded in old-time rhythm & blues musicality, while weaving rock and pop sensibilities through compelling songcraft. A multi-instrumentalist, producer and songwriter, Dru stands out first and foremost for his stunning falsetto, characterizing his dynamic vocal range.
MARICELLE is an indie pop singer-songwriter, influenced by R&B. She writes music that is peppered with social commentary from her perspective on city living. The Pursuit is MARICELLE’s soul-searching endeavour exploring her redefinition of freedom and discovering her voice in a futuristic mural of pop culture and fluid identity. From her experience living in Shanghai and living aboard a cruise ship, the EP documents her adventure exploring music.
MARICELLE has been seen and heard with her music at the Singapore Art Museum’s Singapore Biennale 2017, the Esplanade’s All Things New 2017 concert series, and Hood Bar’s Saturday Originals Sessions.
