12.8

濃厚的九十年代沙龍味道,受到英國老牌樂團的深厚影響,曲風深植於英國文化,而歌曲內容環繞香港及個人生活,歡快的歌曲帶著絲絲的哀愁琅琅上口,冇所畏懼的創作使樂團與香港主導的音樂風格迴異來自香港的英倫搖滾樂團12.8

Deeply influenced by the rise of Britpop culture in the 90s, 12.8 from Hong Kong is eager to take this movement to the next level through bittersweet stories around the city.

R.O.O.T

R.O.O.T (Running Out Of Time) is a local band with jazz as their root. This music group was initiated by Jan Curious, the lead vocal of Chochukmo and Teriver Cheung, a well-known world touring jazz guitarist. Since late 2016, they have constantly surprised the audience by their talents and innovation in jazz music. They were even invited to perform in Freespace Happening in 2016. Naming their band as R.O.O.T. in 2018, they recorded two original songs, “Walk the walk” and “Boys and Girls”, which were included in “Freespace Mixtape Vol. 1”. In the same year, R.O.O.T were invited again to perform in Freespace Happening.

“Jazz is something that you have to experience live. You can’t learn by watching a video. You have to be in the environment in order to observe and be inspired by other musicians.” R.O.O.T are looking forward to attract more audience to have fun in their Jazz live.

– R.O.O.T (Running Out Of Time) 是一隊以爵士為根的本地音樂組合。這音樂組合由觸執毛主音阿水 (Jan Curious) 和知名世界巡迴爵士結他手 Teriver Cheung 發起。他們在 2016 年年尾首度合作,獲邀請於「自由約」戶外音樂會中演出。2018 年,正式命名為 R.O.O.T (Running Out Of Time),錄製兩首原創歌曲——「Walk the walk」和「Boys and Girls」,收錄在「Freespace Mixtape Vol. 1」。同年,R.O.O.T. 再度獲邀出演「自由約」戶外音樂會。

「爵士樂是一種需要欣賞現場演奏的樂種,很難在家中透過錄像去學習,你必須身處在那個環境觀察其他樂手。」R.O.O.T 期待將來能吸引更多聽眾投入爵士的表演當中。

Hunting Unicorns

Like many acts in Hong Kong, ‘Hunting Unicorns’ has been chasing rainbows and magical pots of gold since its first HK jam session. Spontaneous creativity soon progressed into a distinct blend of sounds- mixing an etherial Wurlitzer with the cleanly strummed chords of an acoustic guitar. Part funk, part pop, and part plain fun, ‘Hunting Unicorns’ will make you feel like your in the 70’s with the same outfit you wore to the show. Kyle Wagner, the frontman and fun loving keyboardist will be sure you stay entertained, with catchy grooves and quirky lyrics that will get you on your feet while asking your friend, “What does this song even mean?” After the first lick you won’t even care, because whatever your musical taste, or whatever your era, there’s something in their songs for each of you.
