A six-piece band from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Capt’n Trips and The Kid have become known for their psychedelic and alt-rock sounds, shared with the world through multiple EP and album releases.


With the release of their new album Synthtech, the band ventures outside of their usual sonic repertoire, blending their familiar psychedelic boom with hints of electronica, Krautrock and also modern World music. The album has been coined by JUICE Magazine as “an 11-track assemblage of groovy, foot-tapping tunes that integrate the sexiness of Bossa Nova and the kookiness of early 2000’s electro.”


The band embarked on its first ever headlining tour in 2023, the Invasive Species Tour which saw them travelling across peninsula Malaysia and Singapore, promoting the release of Synthtech with the support of Kyoto Protocol, Cactus Cactus and many other artists.
