    New York trio, +/- {PLUS/MINUS}, will be heading to Singapore for a one-night-only performance come this December 16!

    Famed for their “indietronic” combination of both traditional and electronic instruments and warm vocal harmonies, James Baluyut (guitarist), Patrick Ramos (guitarist/vocalist) and Chris Deaner (drummer) have been actively touring Asia and Europe in support of their latest album, Xs On Your Eyes. And according to KittyWu Records, the Singapore-based music label as well as the promoter responsible for bringing in Mogwai, MONO, Club 8 and Pelle Carlberg to our shores, the band will be heading for a 11-date tour in Japan before hitting Singapore in December.

    Personally, I know close to nothing about this band except for the fact drummer Chris also moonlights as the touring drummer for American Idol alumni, Kelly Clarkson. And them having a difficult band name doesn’t help in my quest of “internet research” either. But you know what? One of the most exciting things to do for music discovery is to know nothing about a band before you go see them live. It’s good to check out a band you’ve never heard of and let the music speak for itself. Try it some time. I always get positive results from this little experiment of mine.

    But in case you would like to check out some of their music, the good folks at KittyWu Records have some choice cuts for you below.
