Our single “Gong Xi, We Are Happy” is based on a traditional Chinese new year song. “Gong Xi” literally means “congratulations.” People in Chinese-speaking countries use the term to congratulate one another on the coming of the lunar new year. Wendy arranged the song last spring to celebrate the completion of her dissertation. For the year of the dragon, we have delivered this new year anthem in a style infused with garage rock and Taiwanese A’ go-go. This single is released on Bandcamp now!
We just released our EP entitled Ali Shan A’ Go Go! For your listening pleasure, we have carefully crafted and delivered four songs. We arranged three traditional tunes from Taiwan – “Ali Shan” and “Ni Wa Wa” and one from Japan, “Moon Over Ruined Castle.” “Œvilteen” is an original song written by Jonathan. Our friend Tom Daly took the photo and Rachel worked on the design of the album art. The EP is available as a digital download at: iTunes, Amazon, Bandcamp, CD Baby, and Emusic.
