WHO ARE THE LAID COMERS?
We are a 5-piece band comprising frontman Sean, drummer Kok, guitarist ShouWei, keyboardist Oribelle and bassist Almo.
Our songs can only be described as a mash whatever inspires us, blending rhythm and melody to thrash out some blues, funk, pop and rock. Our sound reflects our nature: fun-loving, sometimes unpredictable, but always a pleasure to have around.
Back in 2009, three friends (Sean, Kok & Almo) came together as fresh-faced musicians looking to explore the wonders of music, covering a diverse range of songs from the funky Red Hot Chili Peppers to the raw and energetic Nirvana to soulful, bluesy John Mayer. At that time, the NUS Kent Ridge Hall Rockers was our home as we took the chance to play with and learn from our peers.
Our journey into original music started with the decision to audition for Anaki Rocks Chinatown in 2011 and Anaki Rocks the City in 2012. This path took us to a whole new altitude in our musicianship as we dug deep to express ourselves through our own material. In 2015, ShouWei and Oribelle joined the fold, and their immense knowledge of music and endless creativity has undoubtedly elevated our sound to a whole new level.
Over the past 3 years, we have been recording and producing our first EP. Through this journey, we have put everything we loved about music – head-banging rhythm, hip-swaying groove and heart-wrenching melodies, into 20 minutes of soundwaves. With our self-titled debut EP ready to go, we look to take the nation by storm, one gig at a time.
