Bored Spies are an International three-piece. Formed in early 2012, the trio are currently based in Singapore, Seoul and Arizona with a line up featuring Singaporean singer/guitarist Cherie Ko (Obedient Wives Club, Pastelpower) on vocals, Orestes Morfin (Bitch Magnet) and Panther Lau (Seam).

They have just announced the release of their debut single Summer 720 b/w ‘沙鼠E’ (shāshǔ E) digitally, with a limited edition 7″ vinyl to follow on Deer Island in Asia/NA and Damnably in Europe.

Pre-production has commenced for a full-length album due later this year and the band will make their first international appearance in Barcelona at Primavera Sound 2013 this May.

“Bored Spies are currently based in Singapore, South Korea, and Arizona, but they have a minimalist rock style that spans from Talk Talk’s London to Mazzy Star’s Southern California.”Spin

“Recorded in two weekends with Brad Wood, this dynamics-shifting slowcore burner has more in common with the producer’s work with atmospheric bands like Tortoise and the Fire Theft than his more famous records by Liz Phair and Smashing Pumpkins.” Spin

“sweet yet brash, bold yet amiable – full of contrasting hues and yet dead-eyed focused on heart and soul” Power Of Pop

“the band mix traditional song structures with progressive rock elements, exploring the space between pop and abstract minimalism” Other Sounds
