Phonogen beauty DADA BABA

The eyes should be pleased with beautiful fashion, fair enough that also the ears should be caressed with stylish music. Luckily for our ears, our base Hong Kong hosts a bouquet of bands playing decent independent sounds. Our current favorites are DADA BABA with their ingenious, phonogen noise-pop prog-rock perls. Music is better to listen to than to read, so give an ear to “Ài (shàng nǐ de) mèimei – Love (on your) Sister”:

DADA BABA - 愛(上你的)妹妹 from LEE KAI HO on Vimeo.

Lead singer Kit Tam takes the audience in their live gigs on a travel, let them float and divulge in DADA BABA’s bitter-sweet melodies, just to suddenly gear-up the beat and energize the crowd with euphoric tunes. Witness the eruptive nature of their sound at 1:31 in the above video. Torn between indie rock and Chinese folk elements are they capable to please both, mainstream tastes and demanding music lovers. Having played so far in atmospheric underground locations, it is a question of time until DADA BABA will sonify masses in football stadiums. But can independent b(r)ands keep up their creativity while becoming big?
