(Linying)

Just read that Linying is going to be at Summer Sonic in Tokyo next month, you can read a short interview with her over at BandwagonSG.

Her ep (Paris 12) is coming out in September.  The song Alpine may be one we have posted before, but I think it was taken down at some point.  – Anyway, it’s back up today, so take advantage and hear this glorious ethereal music while you can!   =D

p.s. Linying has a few things on her tumblr, including lyrics for Alpine and a couple of other songs.

LINE UP – SUMMER SONIC 2016

To help promote Chocolate Tiger 猛虎巧克力 in Singapore this weekendShiinstudio did a video interview with the band (English subtitles!) about the For My Dear Weirdo lyrics MV.  

You can watch the Shiinstudio interview clip HERE.

They had no budget for a proper concept MV, but they got all of their TW indie friends to display each line of the lyrics. Check it out, it’s quite charming & silly, and you’ll see so many familiar faces. (credits at the end, or you can follow the MV back to YT)

Speaking of Elephant Gym, they posted a rehearsal clip to fb… not exactly what you may have expected after the long hiatus, but entertaining nonetheless. ‘da-da-da-da, da-da-da-da-da-da, da-da-da-da, da-da-da-da-da’   =D
