Yaoband mixes poetry with electric rock


Can you guess which member co-wrote songs with Jason Fu?

If Apple features you in an ad , surely you have to be pretty special.  Electric rock band Yaoband/The Honor 耀乐团 not only have an American distributer, but also a lot of full English songs (but no, no booty like fat cheese).

I can’t believe I missed them before (okay, I can, it’s because of the random appearance of Aventurina King in their MV) .  I first heard them performing at the Migu festival last month and was immediate an fan. One member, Zhang Jinghao, also co-wrote  Jason Fu Longfei‘s Survivor.    You can listen to and buy their songs on itunes here and read more about them here.

They’re currently working on their new album, but here’s their single from their last album that mixes ancient poetry with a modern beat. Fun fact: the dancers of this live performances come from a dance studio now ran by ex-girlband S.P.Y.
