TypeWriter will be playing Baybeats Festival on Friday 26 June at the intimate Mixtape stage at The Lawn, in between the Popwerhouse and Arena stages. We’re on at 11pm and will be collaborating with Esther Lowless. We’ll be debuting three new songs, including “Everything Is Classified”, which is featured on the recently released double-CD compilation called “State Of Rock” by the S2S label.
The Baybeats show will be the first with our new drummer Robin Chua (Livonia/Shelves). Rehearsals with Esther have been intense and we’re very excited to have her perform with us on most of the songs.
Baybeats Festival is free to all. Our set ends at 11:45pm… enough time to catch the last bus or train home. We really hope to see you there!

We have been busy writing and working on new songs since the second quarter of 2014. We’re really excited about the new songs and evolution of our sound. We hope to get the EP out by end of the year or in early 2015. Watch this space!
As 2013 nears its end, we look back and are thankful for the wonderful year we’ve had. We performed at Pink Dot 2013, The Singapore Night Festival and did a UK tour playing 7 shows in London, Plymouth, Cornwall and the International Pop Overthrow Festival in Liverpool. Performing at The Cavern Club was definitely one of the biggest highlights of the tour. Enjoy the video!

Last Saturday (29 June), we played to the biggest crowd we’ve ever had, at Pink Dot 2013. It was awesome to see so many people come support the freedom to love. According to the organisers of Pink Dot, 21000 people turned up at the event. Check out the post-event videos!
Marking its milestone fifth edition this year, Pink Dot 2013 aims to take the message of inclusivity and diversity to Singaporeans far and wide. Last year, over 15,000 Singaporeans turned Hong Lim Park into a sea of shimmering pink lights, for the first-ever night Pink Dot. Thousands of straight and LGBT Singaporeans came together to celebrate inclusiveness, diversity and the freedom to love, with the formation of a giant Pink Dot at Speakers’ Corner.
The event starts at 5pm with the one-hour concert beginning at 6:30pm sharp. TypeWriter is proud to be performing at Pink Dot 2013. Jianping from King Kong Jane is filling in on drums for Wan this Saturday. We would love to see you there. Please come dressed in pink!
