“With seemingly limited time and experience, this trio of HK indie rockers have crafted a self-titled EP that really is very, very good.” - The Underground HK
Strange Lives are an indie rock trio from Hong Kong. Drawing sonic influences from guitar-fronted acts such as Kaiser Chiefs and Arctic Monkeys, Strange Lives combines their own brand of alternative rock interlaced with synthesizers and a DIY ethic, all fronted by youthful and occasionally laddish songwriting.
Originally a solo project by frontman and vocalist Elliott Wan, the band officially formed with the inclusion of bassist Ethan Tang and drummer Ethan Yim during the summer of 2018. Wasting no time in the studio, the trio self-produced their debut self-titled EP by the end of summer, and released it on October 26, 2018.
The young band, which members were all 18 years old or under, was met with overwhelming support for their debut 5-track effort - with SCMP Young Post awarding the EP 4 out of 5 stars, and was praised by New Ears Music for the production. More, The Underground HK commented that “...it’s about time Hong Kong produced some world beaters, and these guys have just the right tools to maybe be it.”
Following up with their colorful and sudden burst into the Hong Kong indie music scene, the band released single “Right Now”, which was featured on Spotify-curated playlist ‘Just Rock’.
The band is currently working on their second project, aimed to be released by the end of summer 2019.
