Here's the latest psych-rock addition to Laneway Festival Singapore 2017
Aussies King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard are among four new acts to join the festival's final lineup

It's about to get really loud in the meadows. Laneway Festival Singapore 2017 has recently announced four additions to their lineup this year, with Singapore DJs A/K/A SOUNDS and Poptart, Malaysian Froya and Aussies King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard. The first three are regular names on our regional music circuit, so if you haven't heard of the entry from down under, here's a chance to get acquainted.

Not likely to be pigeonholed, seven members make up this Melbourne outfit, who lean into psych-rock territory but still possess a healthy dose of diverse influences. Having released eight records in the last four years and plans for five more in 2017 alone, you'll hear elements of garage rock, folk, jazz, soul and heavy metal in their Laneway set. The seven-year-old band's also known for their high-octane performances, which is something to look forward to if they play their 16-minute single, Head On/Pill, from 2013.

Laneway Festival Singapore 2017 takes place on 21 January at The Meadow, Gardens by the Bay. For tickets, click here.
