Imagine what it is like to combine the vibrant spirit of rock’n roll music with a swingy touch of jazz under sophisticated techniques, packing into a hand full of heart-striking, harmonic-rich melodies — and you will see Fayzz, they who have grasped the balance between creative experimentation and ear-pleasing euphony.
Experienced listeners will be pleasantly surprised by the elements of post-rock, math-rock, chill-out, and even jazz-hop intertwined in their music, but feel free to put the musical jargons aside and allow your heart and soul to sink into a world encircled by swift drum beats, bright guitar picking, and rhythmic bass notes if you just want to have a unique as well memorable listening experience in the overabundant modern industry of music.
Fayzz started off as a one-man project initiated by musician Fan Bin in 2009, slowly evolving into the current set up as new members Huang Yu (Bass), Mu Wang (Guitar), and Xiao Bo (Drums) joined in. The band might welcome new members in the future so as to explore the use of wind instruments and synthesizers, which have appeared in their music in quite a few instances. As a band of progressive artistry approach, Fayzz will not hesitate to explore new creative possibilities; listeners can expect that they further break away from limits defined by genres.
Likewise, you are likely to discover through listening that it is difficult to phrase them within a set of boundaries, just as their music is likely to be the embodiment of freedom in expression, a way of relating to the outside world we all seek for. So be sure to listen, with a mind full of imagination and a heart full of appreciation, to this voice of youth.
Fayzz is now cooperating with 1724 Records, which is currently celebrating its 11th birthday, in planning new releases, live events, and band merchandise.
Memories will never die, they all reside in our mind, influence everybody unconsciously and continuously. Just like how various traditions divide different nations, diverse memories are our evidences to confirm who we are. In its latest album called Foldback, Muggle-a post/math rock band from Chang Sha -gives a trying: using the dialogues from a TV play which was popular in the 1980s, mixed with sound effects, electric guitar and human voice, to compose a piece of instrumental/ambient music work with 45 minutes in length. With Foldback, Muggle wants to pay homage to all the vanished beauty. As for the TV play, it’s called Dream of the Red Chamber, adapted from the eponymous novel firstly published in 1791. In addition to describing Chinese traditional culture comprehensively, both of the novel and the play show how touching a tragedy could be by telling a story about disillusioned love and broken dreams. In response to the sad story, Foldback was created in a simple and restrained way -after decades, all the pain will go away and all the sorrow will be forgotten, peace is the only thing we get in the end. As Muggle’s second record, Foldback tries to break through the stereotyped creation of post-rock. Authorizations of the dialogues haven’t been gotten yet, out of respect for the artists, Muggle and 1724- Muggle’s record label-decided to release Foldback for free, both hypostatic and digital editions. If you are interested in listening or downloading Foldback, share its webpage from discogs on your facebook or twitter, and sent e-mail to email@example.com to get download link.
