The Great Spy Experiment created music that is the best of indie, rock and dance put together, informed by anything and everything except Pitbull. As much guitar-led as it is beat-driven, with indie riffs juxtaposing irresistible pop hooks and melodies that tug the heartstrings, the music was created with the dancefloor in mind and the bedroom at heart. Undoubtedly one of the leading lights of the Singaporean independent music scene, the band featured in internationally renowned events such as the Baybeats, One Movement, Singfest, ZoukOut, MIDEM and South-by-Southwest festivals and brought their music to audiences as far and wide as London, New York, Perth, Cannes and Taipei. Their first album, Flower Show Riots, released in September 2007, garnered rave reviews and widespread acclaim both in Singapore and abroad. February 2013 saw the release of their sophomore album, Litmus, yet another milestone in their quest to change the face of Singaporean independent music. The album was an instant hit, going straight to the top of the iTunes album charts in Singapore within 24 hours of its release.

The Great Spy Experiment disbanded in 2015, playing their final show at the Esplanade Concert Hall in Singapore on 5 June 2015.
