Take Two
 
In a little over 2 years, Take Two has gone from playing in a dark, dingy university dormitory, to performing to audiences all over Southeast Asia and China. With ears primed to take in anything across the aural spectrum - from Kimbra to Robert Glasper, Bombay Bicycle Club to Last Dinosaurs, and some good old 90s pop – the quintet’s music is the by-product of reverence for the maestros and taking to heart the élan of great pop-sensibilities.
