This all-girl group led by Yangfan from Hang on the Box (now-defunct punk/riot grrl group and one of the more well-known Chinese bands outside China) has been described as "one of the most important and interesting bands in the world" by Michael Pettis (founder of Maybe Mars, China's most important indie label... I have probably mentioned that a whole bunch of times in posts on here whatever). They make sighing indie pop that can be reminiscent of Sonic Youth or The Velvet Underground at times but in general they've crafted their own distinctive style and if they aren't one of the most interesting bands in the world they're certainly one of the most interesting from China.
