AMATEUR TAKES CONTROL (ATC) wears its heart on its sleeve. Its affirmation of independent DIY ethics, calling for the everyman to steer his own life, shouts out from its powerful, emotional music. The five-piece instrumental rock outfit launched its debut album, You, Me and the Things Unsaid, in 2008. The release was viewed as a landmark record, considering the short history of post-rock in Singapore. Fresh from a three-year hiatus, ATC will let loose ATC EP2 on 26 December 2017. Noisier, darker and more aggressive: That’s the ATC promise.
