Pop Punk Band The Punkins Featuring HK Ethnic Minorities Release Album/MV [Hong Kong]

Hong Kong’s Nepali community has a new addition to their scene via pop punk band The Punkins. Formed in 2015, the band started as a cover act but as they got better with their instruments they started creating their own material. Fast forward to 2021 and the band released their debut self-titled album. They even dropped a music video for a track off the album entitled ‘Drama Queen’.

Listening to the music almost immediately takes us back to the late 90s pop-punk world of Hong Kong. Believe it or not, there once was a VERY vibrant punk rock community in HK full of bands, shows, zines, and even record labels. So much energy in the air with things happening here all the time. Full-lengths, splits, compilation records, even had some bands come out here during that time including Fugazi. What a time that was…

Check out the band and their music streaming below.
