About Cosmic Armchair
Cosmic Armchair is an indie electronic pop duo from Singapore, featuring Cosmic Jane (singer/producer) on vocals and digital visuals, and Cosmic Ben (producer/arranger) on keyboards and touchscreens. They were named one of the ”10 Highlights of Past Baybeats that We’ll Never Ever Forget” on Esplanade’s Baybeats blog.
Cosmic Armchair’s 4 EP’s and one full-length album show influences from Tears for Fears, Armin van Buuren, Howard Jones, and St Etienne; fans and critics describe them as a cross between ’90s synth-pop, trance and new wave.
Cosmic Armchair loves to experiment, having collaborated with musicians from Arts Sphere’s pipa, erhu and dizhi trio for On the Waterfront: Singatronica (Esplanade, 2010); with Japanese cult favourite video artists Cobalt Bomb Alpha Omega (Club Batica, Tokyo, and Togo Curry, Chiba, 2016); and with NUS Baba House and Electronic Music Lab for the hybrid Peranakan electronica show Digital Dondang Sayang (NUS Baba House, 2017).
