后海大鲨鱼 ( Queen Sea Big Shark) - S/T

Queen Sea Big Shark are the most prominent dance/garage punk band in Beijing. Their music and especially their eccentric lead singer 付菡 (Fu Han) will probably remind you of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, a band that has had profound influence on China and Taiwan's musical scenes. They're known for a furious live show which their recorded music does a pretty good job of approximating, but I personally think they're best playing mid-tempo tracks like album centerpiece Hello! Passengers, a Blondie/Berlin-inflected new-wavey track that clocks in at over 6 minutes but feels like half that.
