Irish band And So I Watch You From Afar (ASIWYFA) has just announced their debut show in Southeast Asia, to be held in Singapore on 28 February.
The four-piece from Belfast is one of Ireland’s most beloved alternative musical outfits, receiving overwhelming critical acclaim and accolades for their dynamic post-rock and trademark guitar riffs.
Forming in 2005, they have released three EPs and three albums to date, also touring at an unparalleled pace for over five years building a legion of fans around the world from Belarus to China, and most recently, India.
In the band’s latest record, All Hail Bright Futures, there is a new colour scheme in place: new textures, emotions, sounds and voices — a positive uplift that more closely matches the euphoria the Northern Ireland quartet has been instilling in audiences through their music in a live setting.
All Hail Bright Futures is ASIWYFA’s first recording done as a three-piece following the departure of Tony Wright. They will head back out on the road as a four-piece with their new, full-time member Niall Kennedy on guitar and perform songs from the new album — their boldest statement yet — that states a renewed case for a magnetizing band at their best.
