The English Breakfast Tour T-shirts, designed by the wonderful team at fFurious, will be on sale tomorrow at our English Breakfast @ Artistry gig. It’s a limited edition front-and-back silk screen printed t-shirt and comes in S, M, L and XL sizes. The even more limited print of the English Breakfast Tour Posters will also be on sale. It’s the eve of the Labour Day public holiday so we hope to see you at Artistry (located at 17 Pinang Road) tomorrow evening!
We had a great time performing at The Pigeonhole on Saturday, 5 May 2012 with Pep Talk and Gabriel Lynch. We were all glad to see a packed crowd who were enthusiastic and supportive. Thanks to everyone who came down to the gig. Our dear friend Tim shot two videos of us – “Sunlight Takes Over” and “That Deepest Blue”. Thanks Tim!
TypeWriter is currently taking a break from gigging and we’re hoping to start writing new material soon. In the meantime, Patrick is mixing the debut album by Shelves (pic above), an awesome band comprising of Noel Yeo, Robin Chua, Melvin Ho and Brian Leery. Shelves, like TypeWriter, is made up of experienced musicians from the Singapore indie music scene who have previously played in bands such as Silverspy, Suchness, Livonia and Leeson. No release date has been announced for the Shelves album but from the tracks we’ve heard so far, it’s going to be an absolute gem! Look out for it in the near future!

TypeWriter is supporting animal rights NGO, ACRES, in its call for Resorts World Sentosa to free the dolphins in captivity. We have recorded a cover of “Please Let The Dolphins Go” and made a video to spread awareness for this campaign. Other artists such as Cheating Sons, Jack & Rai, Kevin Mathews and MUON are also supporting this campaign. Some have also covered this song while a few have written originals.

TypeWriter will be playing the Love-In gig on 6 March, 5pm at Hong Lim Park. The gig is free and features many other wonderful acts, like our friends The Pinholes, Etc, Basement In My Loft, King Kong Jane, Zahidah, For This Cycle and Sean Harrison. Hope to see you there to support the anti-Domestic Violence awareness campaign.
The wonderful folks at fFurious, a multi-disciplinary creative agency based in Singapore, created TypeWriter’s music video for “That Deepest Blue”. We would like to thank Little, Bert and everyone at fFurious for their hard work, dedication and generosity in making the video.
TypeWriter is in today’s My Paper.
It’s the eve of a brand new year and we’re giving away a free download to everyone who’s been supporting us in 2010. The song is remixed by our friend Haramain Osman (producer and frontman The Lion Story). Amin also mixed “Enemy” and “Where To Go”, that are on “Indian Head Massage”. May you have a rocking and exciting 2011 ahead!
