This is probably the MOST epic song ever written by a Chinese punk rock band in the history of punk rock in China…check out SMZB‘s brand new music video. Here’s the background:
“New music video from the Wuhan-based punk band SMZB. The song is based on a poem written by Lin Zhao (??), a student from Peking University, who was imprisoned for defending students, persecuted during Mao Zedong’s Anti-Rightist Movement in the late 1950s. A gifted writer, Lin composed endless articles and poems from her cell. Forbidden to use pens, she wrote with a hairpin dipped in her own blood. In 1968 she was executed, her tragic life lost to the margins of history.”
The entire first 4 minutes of this song is a solemn melancholic female voice sung movingly…and then SMZB kick back into it right after that…this is a masterful piece of punk rock that needs to be shared the world OVER!!!
This is all in anticipation of the band’s brand new full length which will hopefully take the band to new heights!
