Hanging Up The Moon started off as the solo project of Sean Lam, ex-frontman of Concave Scream, one of Singapore’s pioneer indie bands. Recorded entirely in his study in the wee hours of the morning, the self-titled debut album was a stripped-down affair, its quiet sound captivating both critics and listeners alike. In the follow-up album, Hanging Up The Moon explored a different soundscape with the help of good friends and fellow veterans of the local music scene: Dean Aziz (Concave Scream), Leslie Low (The Observatory) and Victor Low (Affixen). “The Biggest Lie In The World” was launched at the Esplanade Recital Studio, playing to a full house. The album’s first edition of 350 hand numbered LPs has since sold out and is currently pending a reissue.
With “Immaterial”, Hanging Up The Moon moves even further away from its singer-songwriter roots and continues to evolve both in sound and set-up, with Alexius Cai (Piblokto) joining the line-up. This new album is our most lush and ambitious project to date. Layers upon layers of vocals meet their match in violins and cellos at times epic and soaring, at times subtle and grounded — all set against Hanging Up The Moon’s signature melodies, riffs and rhythm.
