Singaporean indie band The Oddfellows was formed in 1987, but is still active making music today. Patrick Chng (vocals, guitars, keyboards), Kelvin Tan (guitars, vocals), Vincent Lee (bass, vocals), and Johnny Ong (drums) were widely acclaimed for their infectious melodies, honest songwriting and good vibes in the early 1990s. On their new (third) full-length album What’s Your And Mine they prove that again, 29(!) years after their previous studio LP. They now even sing about a New Future (about living in the pandemic period, with more cowbell), and the lyrics of Where’s Your Heart? show that they have moved with the times (“K-pop stars and YouTube streams // A billion likes, oh what a tease // You’re so hard to please”). These are eleven new original songs with influences from 70’s power pop, 80’s American college rock, and 90’s UK indie bands, sympathetic guitar songs made for 2021. RIYL Teenage Fanclub, The Posies, The Chills.
What’s Your And Mine is out now digitally, and will be released on CD and vinyl LP by Teenage Head Records at a later date.
