After an eight-year hiatus, The Great Spy Experiment make their comeback with a fourth appearance on the Baybeats stage. Armed with a repertoire of crowd favourites, the band brings their distinct brand of emotive and powerful indie rock to the venue that has been their spiritual home, with the goal to move the hearts of fans once again.

Ticket-holders who leave the venue during the performance will have to join the queue for walk-in patrons in order to re-enter the venue.

The Great Spy Experiment

Instagram | Facebook | Youtube

Formed in 2006, The Great Spy Experiment are considered indie rock veterans, having made an indelible mark on Singapore’s indie music landscape. Effortlessly blending elements of indie rock, pop, and dance-electronica, their music is as much guitar-led as it is beat-driven, with indie riffs juxtaposing melodies that tug the heartstrings—music created with the dance floor in mind and bedroom at heart.


The band has released two albums, Flower Show Riots in 2007 and Litmus in 2013, with Litmus making history as the first in Singapore to break through iTunes album charts. Prior to their hiatus, The Great Spy Experiment delivered electrifying live performances touring across the world and was the first homegrown band to perform at the acclaimed SXSW Festival in 2007. With their innovative sound and charismatic stage presence, they have earned a dedicated following, making them undoubtedly one of the leading lights of the Singaporean independent music scene. After disbanding in 2015 and following a lengthy hiatus, The Great Spy Experiment is back with a new release Sanctuary/Secrets, a two-track single embodying their signature sound—powerful yet poignant.
