About Take Two:

Contributing members of society by day, indie pop-rock outfit by night - leading a dual life is the name of the game for Take Two. Formed in late 2012, the quintet have since performed at Chiang Mai Music Festival 2014, NOISE Singapore's 2013 showcase, the FEYST 2013 Indie Youth Festival in Kuala Lumpur, and have been featured twice at the Esplanade's "Esplanade Presents" series. They were also part of the roster for SGMUSO's first ever House Party, sharing the stage with notable contemporaries Charlie Lim, The Sam Willows, and Kevin Lester.

Influenced by Brit Rock, Jazz, and Indie Pop (among others), Take Two bring to you their own blend of guitar-driven musical incarnations, full of crafty chord work and foot-stomping grooves.

Currently working on their debut EP, the band are also participants with this year's Noise Music Mentorship program, with Saiful Idris (The Great Spy Experiment) as their mentor. They will be performing at Music Matters Live 2014 and the EcoPop 2014 in Spain later this year.

lyrics

Lyrics:

In the crowds come streaming
Destinations dot across the lines
Dragging heavy footsteps
Heads bowed in silence, passing time

Past the milling people
Didn’t have to try to catch his eye
Though the words elude him
She was never meant to be described

So it goes
Fortune favours those
The less they seek, the more they’ll find
Who knows?

Tell him what he needs to know
Tell him all these thoughts should go
Oooh woah-oh-oh
Oooh woah-oh-oh

Tell him what he needs to know
Tell him where the blood should flow
Oooh woah-oh-oh
Right before he can make his move

As he tries to muster
All the courage he can find
See his chances closing
Watch the doors open, she alights

Disappointment sets in
Departing now was his daily highlight
Little piece of respite
Before he’s back to work the grind

Prechorus
