Shedding Light on Chinese Subculture: The Gar

Check out this MV from my favorite indie Chinese band, “The Gar”.

I’ve written about The Gar before, expressing how much I love their sound and vocalizing my urge to see them perform. I haven’t, however, posted a music video of theirs yet. Below you’ll find the MV to one of The Gar’s many influential tracks entitled Two Mothers, released in 2009 through Chinese label Maybe Mars. The imagery is haunting and simplistic, and captures the essence of the track’s emotion; It’s the feeling of entrapment and frenzied confusion through and through. Immerse yourself in the very under-the-radar, enriching world of Chinese Indie Rock. You won’t be disappointed.
