HA NOI (VNS) — Rock bands The Observatory from Singapore, MoE from Norway, and Hanoian local technopunk group XAI will gather for a one-night performance at Hanoi Rock City tomorrow night.
Based in Singapore, The Observatory have released five albums. Their indie and improv leanings reflect an obsessive intent to stifle inhibition and undermine mechanical ways of commercial music-making.
Norway's MoE are known for mixing their minimalistic compositions with alternative and experimental approaches that fail to fit in the rock genre. With countless collaborations exceeding the borders of rock and noise.
Vietnamese technopunk band XAI is a group consisting of young artists from Ha Noi's experimental music school – Dom Dom, and two members of the punk band Go Lim, as well as English front woman Lizo.
Loosely defining their music as technopunk, this frantically playful, live electronic band blend trumpet and keyboard melodies with crashing drums, scratchy vocals and analogue object play upon layers of solid baselines and originally crafted beats and textures.
The event will take place at Hanoi Rock City, 27/52 To Ngoc Van Street, Tay Ho District from 7.30pm. — VNS
