Pitch Feather

Pitch Feather from Singapore is an indie folk-rock trio comprising Alberta (Vocals / Keyboards / Melodica), Chuan (Bass / Guitar /Backing Vocals) and Hongliang (Drums / Percussion). There is an enticing lilting timorous vocal that snares the ears and before you know it you are captivated by the delicacy of the sounds which reminisce of the light orchard fruits […]
