Bored Spies a new international rock trio featuring Singaporean singer/guitarist Cherie KO and also includes members of nineties indie bands Seam (Touch and Go Records) and Bitch Magnet (Temporary Residence Limited). Formed in late Spring 2012, the band is currently based out of Singapore, Seoul, and Tucson, AZ.
Mixing traditional song structures with progressive rock elements, the band’s songs explore a space between traditional pop music and the laid back minimalism pioneered by artists like Roxy Music. KO’s vocals are a centerpiece of Bored Spies’ sound and bring to mind the mystical, languid phrasings of a young Stevie Nicks or Hope Sandoval.
In May 2013, the band will make its European debut with a tour of Spain, including a stop at the Primavera Sound Festival. A U.S. and UK tour is in the works for this summer. The band plans to release a full-length album later in 2013.
