Hong Kong instrumental rock band TFVSJS have unveiled a bunch of tracks from their new album…and they’re intense…as if anyone expected anything different. The band has been quite the force here in Hong Kong coming complete with two drummers meaning wherever they play, promoters best be ready with a second set ready to go for these guys. The music together with the two drummers raises the bar of intensity of their live show through the roof…that has been their staple live performance set up from the get go.
On their brand new album entitled Zoi however, the focus instead is solely placed on the intensity of the musicality of the 10 tracks compiled for this release. The individual musicians and the mastery of their instruments is simply…incredible…there is a lot of head scratching that goes on this album as you try to make sense of what you’re hearing. It’s not for everybody…you will need to be in the right headspace as you dive into the first few tracks of the album. But once you’ve successfully tuned yourself in to what is going on this disc, your patience will be rewarded greatly. And with every repeated listen, even more so.
The band is one of the greatest exports from Hong Kong’s indie-music climate in some years…they are hotly embraced both in Hong Kong and abroad (read more news further below)…all for good reason. They are breathtaking in their expertise in being able to take a listener through a beautiful journey of sounds and experiences.
