Clarence Garcia ANECHOIS makes 5 to 6 minute songs seem short. Nothing is ever excessive. These guys know how to write and you can feel the honesty from their songs. Favorite track: The Moon and the Sun.

“[O]nce in a blue moon, a special band like ANECHOIS appears, and that fire is reignited. These instrumental boys are our scene’s future.” — JUICE Awards 2012 (Best Band)

"…an unbelievable amount of both instrumental prowess and songwriting skills. Each composition is distinct and well-written but yet they seamlessly flow into each other…" — Bandwagon.sg

Track Name: Echoes
We speak in different ways
Your silence paints,
image whole

Silently, silently
I agree
Track Name: Written on the Walls
Don't think it's over
It's not written on the walls

And we suffered through this
Oh, the meaning of your terrible lies
Pick yourself up, dust away
The dirt off your shoulders

Walk away casually
From the debris
Visualise, it's in your mind
Track Name: Your Absence Is Permanent
It's a mess when
You are running around with scissors
And everyone on your side's evading to escape
The pain that pierces the skin
So let me go

Your heart is staring
You're still fragile
Why oh why
The sun has to come
In the absence of love
I bury under my skin

We shall seek and find...
