Amateur Takes Control

Powerhouse (Waterfront Carpark)

There has never been much mystery to Amateur Takes Control (ATC), the five-piece instrumental rock outfit founded by guitarist Adel Rashid in 2006. The band's name is a transparent mission statement: an affirmation of independent DIY ethics and a call for the everyman to take the reins of their lives. ATC has lived and worked by this ethos since the days of their debut album You, Me and the Things Unsaid, released on KittyWu Records in 2008 and by now a landmark record in the short history of Singaporean post-rock. Amateur Takes Control is officially back from a three-year hiatus and has enlisted Caracal guitarist Field Teo and drummer Martin Kong to write and record an EP of new material. Expect noisier, darker and more aggressive music coming from Amateur Takes Control in 2017.
