"Two years after its last album, veteran Singapore avant rock band The Observatory makes a powerful return to the fray of contemporary music, speaking uncensored truth to obscene power with the conspicuously political Oscilla. Where previous album Catacombs was very much a journey of self -- of madness, corporeality and personal demons -- Oscilla is an expression of collective will and action. Where the former was lined with uncertainty and delusions, the latter is confident and defiant."

(Mark Wong, Ujikaji)



Oscilla is the imagined swing of our imperfect times. The gait of the invisible beast we embody. Flux and formlessness. It represents a new kind of hope. The current constellation of The Observatory are vibrations of shifting rhythms, synth bass space, oscillators and abused guitars. Repetition is at the heart of their riff. Hammering out a certain truth. Noise, rock, and melancholy. A society in tumult, divided. Where new forms of oppression are actively met with new strategies of resistance.


With Support from National Arts Council, The Substation, Davis Guitar and REYKA
