Nocturnes曳取 are stopping in Hongkong at Fringe Dairy as part of their national tour! The two-piece have an electrifying live act that draws upon their inspirations in the Chinese Indie scene, while retaining a style that is uniquely their own. They will be hitting up Hongkong alongside So It Goes.

Nocturnes曳取 are an Indie-Electronic band based in Beijing, China. They are: Leslie - vocals/lyrics & David - guitar/production.

Their music has been described as “sultry”, “atmospheric” and “emotional”, and sits somewhere between the intensity of Foals, the electronic elements of Bonobo and the pop sensibilities of Coldplay.

“Lush, finely groomed arrangements” form the basis for Nocturnes曳取’s “haunting vocals” and “atmospheric guitar work”. Vocalist Leslie finds lyrical inspiration in the disaffected youth of China, with songs depicting the struggles of going against social conventions and being your own person in a society that shuns individualism. Guitarist/Producer David draws inspiration from the electronics sounds of the XX and Bonobo, combining it with the vibrant sounds he hears in the Beijing Indie scene.

Their previous EP, Dust Into Glory, was also widely praised, featuring in Spotify’s Worldwide Viral 50, and spawning remixes from several artists, including LOFIMAKER, Demone and Another Van. They followed Dust Into Glory with a series of 4 cover videos inspired by some of their favorite artists, with their cover of Future Orients’ Running receiving over 7.5 million views on Weibo.

Coming off a strong 2017 run with appearances at festivals like MIDI, Zhangbei and Simple Life, as well as supports with American indie stars Surfer Blood, Japanese Breakfast, and Beijing’s very own Da Bang, Nocturnes曳取 will definitely be the indie breakout stars of this year.




With support from: So It Goes

So It Goes is a 3-piece girl band based in Hong Kong with Emily on vocals and guitar, Emily on bass and Emily on drums. Besides from having the same name, the 3 Emilies have another thing in common: they are pessimistic optimists. In Slaughterhouse-Five, the phrase “so it goes” follows every occurrence of death no matter the circumstance. Of course, to look back is human, and humanity, including its darkness, weakness and ugliness, is both fascinating and enduring, but when one is encumbered by the inevitable and tragic vicissitudes of life, there is no choice but to keep going. So It Goes has gone through an unexpected eviction from their band room (which led to a court hearing), theft of their hi-hat stand, a few bad live performances, some harsh criticisms, countless equipment malfunctions, and even the sudden departure of one of the founder members...but the love for music is so strong and so tied to their very existence that the band is simply incapable of giving up. Emilies don’t fight but survive and hope to give people that same strength to go on until that one little special moment makes everything come to life. After all, “for whatever we lose, it is always ourselves we and in the sea.”

Influenced by Mogwai, The XX, Warpaint and Radiohead, the music of So It Goes can be described as alternative rock with a dark psychedelic/garage twist. In their songs, So It Goes often explores the insignificance of human existence, the feeling of powerlessness in a mundane society and the idea that everyone is at the mercy of time and change. The band may not have a very concrete direction yet but their music is made for the sensitive humans who feel like bugs in amber. There is always one in loneliness. If the band can touch one person through their music and let that person know there are other bugs in amber, then Emilies would be truly happy.
