Chengdu’s Hiperson returns bolder than ever, with their stunning and ambitious new LP.

With an almost opera-esque approach to their lush mix of spoken-word poetry and high stakes indie rock, “Bildungsroman” takes everything from the band’s past: the razor-sharp guitars, the propulsive percussion, Chen Sijiang’s vulnerable poetic pose.

But it pushes it into new territory, weaving it into an urgent, emotionally taut coming of age story. This dance between moments of delicate sincerity and cathartic declaration is at the core of the dense, subtly provocative yet deeply felt “Our Ballad” and its accompanying music video.

Stream “Bildungsroman” LP on Spotify and Bandcamp.
