A Vacant Affair
A Vacant Affair
You can say we picked Rudi from the classifieds, Josh from a sales promoter and Hafyz at the front door. In a bid to bring the intensity of our material further up a notch, AVA then enlisted the talents of a dear friend and fan, Aaron. Paint with only white. Paint with only black. And that is only what you get.
The art is in the intricate harmony of diversity. With a fresh sound, evolved from genres such as alternative, emo, hardcore, metal and its variations, AVA dived headfirst into the Singapore underground scene with a fresh sound. Since then, the guerilla group has been causing much impact, scribing on the history of Singapore 's music scene, playing gigs at venues like the Substation, The Third Place, Club Rouge, Plaza Singapura, Cineleisure, Republic Polytechic and at a D&D at Fullerton Hotel. They have also played for Stasis 7 and Tsunami Relief @ Zouk.
Along the way, the band recorded their first song 'How About Enough', which garnered a loyal following over live shows and online mediums. Where the hearts collide and ignite, many bonds of a humble cohesion are forged. "The time has come to recover what we lost" declares singer/lyricist Matt in rousing fashion in the epic 7 minute opus The Departure, over soaring angular guitar lines strewn like bullets across a battlefield, further articulated with intense drum and bass lockdowns. This is the journey we choose to take. These are the scars that have only made us stronger. This is A Vacant Affair.
