Cold Fairyland: Cool Fusion Melts Minds
Cold Fairyland was founded in Shanghai nine years ago, and ever since then these prog rockers with a Chinese twist have kept moving along a musical road that is full of magic. They have successfully integrated an unprecedented classically fused jazz style into a gothic mold, in the meantime developing a whole new sound for themselves in Chinese music circles. Cold Fairyland has performed across China (MIDI and more); in Shanghai, Beijing, Guangzhou, Chengdu, Inner Mongolia, their sound straddles the provinces. As the band gathers steam domestically, the overseas music machine has taken note: Cold Fairlyland have played music festivals in Finland, Holland, Spain, and Japan, thereby spreading their version of the new Chinese music culture around the world.
Carrchy: Electro Pop Enhances Emotions
When you hear that sound with the pure, brisk voice and avant art electronic music, there is no doubt that it is Carrchy. A shy, silent boy and a girl infatuated with classical Chinese literature… these two youth once lived a peaceful life in a small peninsula city in China called Qingdao, using the simplest equipment to create most of their works. Now they travel around the world to share their music. When you experience Carrchy, both your happiness and sadness will be enhanced by the emotions in their sound. Every song has its flavor and can take you to a different imaginary space. You will share with them the secrets which were hidden by the dust of time in your heart. This is the unique talent of Carrchy.
