Shenzhen art-punk group Thin City (新城) slipped out from beneath the spilt beer and amp-grease of the city’s more unhinged jam nights and the experimental urban village apartment art scene, finding a sonic core akin to post-punk/power pop bands like the Fall, Hedgehog and Life Without Buildings, and a DIY approach to everything from recording through organising shows, right down to their hand-painted record covers. Lead vocalists Lao Wan and Catherine Ai sing in English and Chinese about the upbeat and desolate, everyday and absurd people and situations around them, backed up by Wan’s guitar and the pounding rhythms of bassist Simon Joubert and drummer Matt Dowling. Now as their live shows evolve they have started to exchange roles, with Simon and Matt also taking on lead vocals and instruments regularly switching hands.Following last year’s debut Rock City Baishizhou and this Spring’s Watermelon EP, the band’s new 6-track EP, O 不OK is out on Shenzhen label Boring Productions on Friday, May 31st, with a new album set to follow.
