A quartet of three guys and a girl from the small island of Singapore, Ellipsis draws its influences from a melting pot of diverse musical tastes. It manages to blend disparate ideas together and create songs that get its audiences to sit up and pay attention. Ellipsis has played both acoustically at open mics and loudly at club gigs.
