Chinese indie rockers present a poppier version of their psychedelia.
Beijing-based psychedelic groovers Chui Wan have always been a band content to follow their own wavelength, pushing their esoteric and sometimes downright surreal sound to new territory, all the while carving out their own little world.
Their fourth LP “Eye (眼)” saw the band evolving further and in many ways redefining themselves, displaying a more delicate, softer, and even poppier version of their psychedelic palette.
On the opening track, “Sun”, Yan Yulong’s falsetto vocals find tender matrimony alongside a upbeat yet slow-burning groove that carries the song along like a sun-bleached carpet-ride to euphoria.
