Sunset Rollercoaster are a romantic pop band from Taipei, made up of Tseng Kuo-Heng (vocals/guitar), Chen Hung-Li (bass), Lo Tsun-Lung (drums), Wang Shao-Hsuan (keyboard), and Huang Hao-Ting (Saxophone). Their music immediately announces that the band comes from a humid, extremely relaxed island, synthesizing influences that have lapped up against Taiwan’s sub-tropical shores: soul, R&B, and rock from America, the neon-lit textures and jazz funk musicianship of Japanese city pop, and the earworm melodies and eternal melancholy of Chinese-language pop. Added to this is a DIY spirit and garage-punk energy that could only come from years spent playing together in their hometown’s fertile underground scene. From these humble beginnings, Sunset Rollercoaster have risen to become bona-fide stars, topping festival bills from China to Japan, and headlining tours in North America and Europe.
Similar Kind is an indie pop band from Norwalk, CT. It originated as just a few friends jamming in a garage and has blossomed into a five piece band playing shows all over the US. Similar Kind has played with acts such as Sunflower Bean, Bad Bad Hats, Hot Flash Heat Wave, No Vacation & more. The band is currently working on a follow up EP to their debut “Faces & Places” a project chock-full of indie pop, reminiscent of The Cure and Talking Heads, described as “dance-ready synth-pop. equal parts R&B, pop, and indie rock, the EP is a highly-polished, thoroughly-confident release”.
The band has a pair of new singles “I Don’t Wanna Fight Anymore” and “ There She Was” their latest releases.
