New Shanghai band pays tribute to Tom & Katie through good music

Another passion project coming out of Shanghai! It’s from a new band called 汤姆克鲁斯和凯蒂赫尔姆斯 (Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes) starring Cee-Q and Xiao Zhong of Pairs fame. Their first show’s August 9th at Yuyintang so if you’re in the area make sure to stop by! Between Demerit’s new venue, Carsick Cars’ return and this new汤姆克鲁斯和凯蒂赫尔姆斯 venture a lot of cool is going down in Big Red! More info, links and video below!

汤姆克鲁斯和凯蒂赫尔姆斯 is a new Shanghai pop/shoegazey/tiny bit of drone/odd folk band two piece project from Cee-Q (Marquee VII) on vocals and Xiao Zhong (Pairs, Hu Jia Hu Wei) on guitar and based in Shanghai, China – where all the cool kids hang.

I don’t like to write in the third person, so I’ll switch it up now.
We have just released our debut self titled album recorded by The Horses at Studio Poney in Shanghai mid July, 2013.
Basically it’s sweet and kind of sad, mostly sung in Mandarin and it’s totally free!
