Chinese Football

With a name like Chinese Football – a nice nod to popular 90s emo band American Football – it’s clear the direction the Wuhan emo rock disciplines are heading in, but it doesn’t hold them back the very least.

Raw, volatile, with a warm indie pop sensibility that never dips into shtick, Chinese Football walk the line long and hard and don’t miss a beat on their jangly single “400m” (400米). It plugs into the adolescent male heart with angst and compassion and a killer math rock riff that all but soars.
