ADD｜NUTS LIVE HOUSE
Nocturnes曳取 are an Indie-Electronic band based in Beijing, China.
Leslie - vocals/lyrics
David - guitar/production.
Their music has been described as “emotional”, “sultry”, “atmospheric” and “immersive”, and sits somewhere between the intensity of Foals, the electronic elements of Bonobo and the pop sensibilities of Coldplay.
The band was officially formed in late 2015 and in March 2016 they independently released their first EP, A World Full of Adults. Soon after, in October 2016, they signed to Chinese record label Cao Tai Music. A string of gigs in the Beijing area and some national festivals followed, culminating in their support of American Indie Rock band Surfer Blood at Yugong Yishan. The fantastic performance at Midi and Zhangbei Festival afterwards also successfully drew huge attentions from a lot of fans.
They released their first EP with Cao Tai, Dust Into Glory, in March 2017, receiving positive reviews and strong online play, with the EP being described as a “sensual concoction of impeccably groomed arrangements, fluid nuanced piano chords and a seamless blend of English and Chinese vocals that linger in the air.” Their song, Shutter, was featured internationally in Spotify’s Viral 50 as the number 1 song on the week of its release. Another song, Perfect Tide, was featured in the CCTV documentary Altay Frontier, a documentary about modern and traditional skiers in Xinjiang, China.
Their first full length album, Lines Written in Code, is due for release at the end of 2017.
