News > Album Release - Demon State
23 September 2022
The Observatory is a pioneer experimental band from Singapore, and is one of those last few bands that can change and become your life. In Demon State, The Observatory continues its bold partnerships, this time with Japanese electronic musician and sound designer Koichi Shimizu who has been active in the scene since the late ‘90s.
A vinyl (180g vinyl) and digital release, DEMON STATE features the cover-art illustration of Enka Komariah (Senyawa, Raja Kirik). As they describe it, the “sense of wretchedness in this, the waste of capitalism, the evils of racial discrimination, the ever-spiralling mess, the awakenism of control” are confronted, head on in the band’s pattern, to disturb, comfort, confuse, worship, dance, rest, and resist.
