ASKAR – GREYWOLF
ELEPHANT FRESH
16MINS

Askar – GreyWolf

Celebrate the NURUZ Festival with truly joyful music!

 

Elephant Fresh (formerly Ashtray Lifeguards) evolved from the explosive punk-funk-rap-rock outfit, Love’s Tourettes, and carry on their quest to meld divergent sounds – psychedelic-soul and electro-funk, indie-rock and hip-hop, even Middle Eastern scales and ska – surprising the listener with unexpected twists and turns while holding it all together with a thumping groove and emo-like energy. Adding new members with ever more nationalities has infused their original music with a new complexity, and their sometimes chaotic live shows reveal their multiple personalities, all in good fun.

16Mins is a progressive, aggressive band that just formed in Beijing, the musical capital of China May 2011. Now normally when you put 4 persons with such a distinctive difference in personality and musical style it will fall apart, but with 16mins, just like their motto ” we embrace all the possibilities” have been cranking out tunes one after another like fitting a magical jigsaw puzzle.

“Its like Radiohead playing the blues” guitarist Robin jokes. ” With classical piano and singing” added by Sindy, the band’s lead vocalist ,now switching from her former piano duty to a more electronic synth. 16mins will go what feels natural to them without the genre restrains. Check them out!

Sindy – Voice, synths. / Robin – Guitars / DaHang – Drums, percussion and sampling / Yuanye – Bass
