ARE is an independent sound project and art rock band based in Singapore by Frank and Lily. The duo invites the Listener to psych-art arrangements that sway between loud guitars, colourful electronics, and lyrical tales in impossible time. They have performed and recorded in Japan and Singapore, from a museum to an abandoned house.
Following the noise-driven early 2017 LP, The Circolusion Will Be Serialized, they have since embarked on Cannonball, an album based upon a film to be shot on tour. Recorded with toy synths and analogue tape decks, Canonball is a whirling blend of melodic psychedelia and grainy electronics. It is an exploration into presenting and creating work in unreality upon lines of sound and picture compositions.
