Named by TIME magazine as one of 5 Music Acts To Watch in 2008 alongside Japanese musician Cornelius is Singapore-based electro-rock chanteuse The Analog Girl. “You’ve heard the hype and it’s true” reveals The Straits Times about the enigmatic performer who is turning heads with her latest EP Sometime Next Galaxy. Mastered by Mandy Parnell in London who has worked with rock and pop luminaries like Feist, Sigur Ros and Depeche Mode, the sound on Sometime Next Galaxy is both lush and intergalactic. The Analog Girl first sprung into the international spotlight when American sportswear giant Nike featured a track from her debut self-released, self-produced album The TV Is On on their European ad campaign Changing The Game in 2005. Since then her unique yet catchy brand of electro pop has caught the ears of many a pop culture royalty including award-winning graphic novelist Warren Ellis, legendary ‘80s synthpop maestros Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (OMD) and Asia’s music icon Chris Ho. The college radio fave Motionless has also been featured on NYLON TV for episodes featuring Kim Gordon (Sonic Youth) and Ladytron. Armed with her sexy MacBook Pro and whimsical machines, The Analog Girl headlined The Knitting Factory in New York during her impressive 6-venue (!) tour of NYC in support of her debut iTunes 5-star rated album The TV Is On. She has also played for famed British photographer Nick Knight’s SHOWstudio in London, as well as, the Cirque Electrique in Paris, Soso Art Cafe in Sapporo, Labella in Shanghai, Zouk Club in KL and at the MTV Asia Awards Voting Party in Singapore. With a multi-city North American tour in the making, The Analog Girl is fast becoming one of tomorrow’s brightest stars to rock a different sound - at a city near you.
“If Tricky’s dark and brooding Maxinquaye album was launched into outer space on a rocket ship commanded by Björk, it might sound something like the Analog Girl.” TIME
“The Analog Girl is in a class of her own, going international with her brand of ‘laptop rock’.” TIME OUT
“Sometime Next Galaxy alternately sounds like a video arcade as well as a dimly lit, outre hip club somewhere in Soho where you might meet Bjork, a cosplay girl dressed up as Hello Kitty or a leather-clad bouncer all dancing together.” THE STRAITS TIMES
“A steamy marriage of angst and art.” GIANT ROBOT
