Local indie band The Great Spy Experiment has become the first local English-language act to top the Singapore iTunes digital music charts with their sophomore album, Litmus, this past week.

Frontman Saiful Idris, 33, says he is just glad to finally release the long overdue album.

"We have to put it in perspective," he says of their sophomore effort released by home-grown label Riot! Records and distributed by Universal Music Singapore.

"We are happy, but we understand from Universal that the Singapore iTunes store has been around for only six months. If you look at it that way, there hasn't been many local bands who have released albums. You can say we are the first but I don't think it means all that much."
