20 February (Tues), Jaggfuzzbeats @ Merdekarya

It’s hard to place Jaggfuzzbeats under one genre umbrella, with a sound that derives from “the jangles of folk to the ambience of pop”, and that is also what makes them so great. Catch the tight-sounding duo in the cosy live music space that is Merdekarya near the end of this month.

Follow Jaggfuzzbeats or Merdekarya for updates.
