Hong Kong: Nowhere Boys - "天外飛仙" – beehype – Best Music from Around the World

Nowhere Boys

Self-proclaimed “cinematic rock” band Nowhere Boys are no strangers to doing epic music. But with “天外飛仙” (“Tain Wai Fei Xian”) they have really outdone themselves.

Blending traditional Chinese elements with a modern rock sound, the song provides a nod to traditional Cantonese opera, both musically and lyrically. A perfect example of an homage done well. Be sure to check out the music video too!
