she said she’d love to disappear But I just want to stay Strangers staring at me everywhere the top of the hill was bare I remember the old song is not the same as before I remember that lovely girl no longer belongs to me, no more It's hard to say what is truly wrong, People down they hang arroud people prayot to be found, It's hard to say, It's hard to say, It's hard to say what is truly wrong, I remember that old song it’s not as same as before, I remember the lovely girl no longer belongs to me, no no more I remember that old song it’s not as same as before, I remember the lovely girl no longer belongs to me, no no more

身体告诉我再快一点 拼命往前跑 不要回头 闭上眼黑色会吞噬我 好想跳进那么美的颜色 Tears on the pillow They never lie follow the rules to get to paradise Tears on the pillow How can I be satisfied If I follow the rules where is the paradise 那股力量指引着拉扯着 神明一般 那个地方只因我没去过 所以贪婪 今晚的夜空有流星 值得期待 不堪的眼角 啊 用尽所有力气 结局轮回旋转 黑夜再次来袭 淹没我吧在所不惜 那股力量指引着拉扯着 神明一般 那个地方只因我没去过 所以贪婪 今晚的夜空有流星 值得期待 不堪的眼角 啊 用尽所有力气 结局轮回旋转 黑夜再次来袭 淹没我吧我也吞噬你

about

Bristling with subtropical restlessness and bursting with energy, Hoo! was founded in Guangzhou in 2018, today its members are singer Luo Jun, guitarist Jiang Xianzhe, bassist Huang Jiage and drummer Li Yuanzhen. With individual interests which range from snacking on weilong to admiring pretty girls, Hoo! are united in their fandom of TOUMING MAGAZINE and their habit of pulling all-nighters, more to the point they are a gang of fiery youths searching for meaning in the face of myriad pressures.

Hoo!’s music brings together indie rock’s DIY sensibilities with the well-known nonchalance of Generation Z. Possessing of both an ardent fierceness and a wickedly clever sensibility, and drawing on explosive guitar riffs and Luo Jun’s dynamic vocal lines, they have boldly forged their own path among a crowd of post-95 generation soft rock bands. Since joining Merrie Records, the band has had a year packed with performances, and the summer release of their first album Hoo! is the natural result of all their hard work.

The cathartic venting of inner emotions, the light-hearted and cute reverie, the secret diary of intimate thoughts and feelings... these differing modes of self-portrayal materialise across the 8 songs of the album. Writing mainly within the style of indie rock, woven in and out of each of the eight songs are the band members’ day-to-day experiences of joy, despondency and whimsy, and, just like in their self-made video clips, they record their lives at the speed of 24 frames per second. Luo Jun calls BAKA a “Japanese style montage of an episode in the life of an assassin,” it’s the most raw and energetic song of the album, and a sure fire hit in Hoo!’s live performances. But assassins are also known to kick back in the city and go for the occasional ‘ramble’, wander into the pub and ruminate over floating ‘beer bubbles’... they might experience the kind of conflicted romance, at once nervous and buoyant, portrayed in the song Gill... or they might run for all their worth towards a long-dreamed about place, arms in the air shouting: “Oh world!”

The album cover is designed by Taiwanese illustrator Chen Nianying, an Instagram friend of lead singer Luo Jun. Moved by Hoo!’s work, Chen Nianying has poured her unfailing decorative style and youthful spirit into the design of the album. The picture of the panda bear Blue in the previously released video clip Blue Blue reappears on the cover of this album: after leaving its room to go outside, it continues exploring the world, yearning for a future in which it can grow up with wanton abandon.

带着亚热带的躁动气息和充沛能量, Hoo! 乐队于 2018 在广州成立,现为罗隽(主唱/吉他),阿哲(吉他),Jaco(贝斯)以及阿臻(鼓)组成的四人阵容。从 plmm 到卫龙,嗜好各不相同,但都是透明杂志爱好者、熬夜组 vvip,也同样是顶着压力寻找意义的青春能量体。
 
Hoo! 的音乐融合了独立摇滚乐的 DIY 精髓和 Z 世代的张扬随性,热血生猛与古灵精怪兼具,凭借炸裂的吉他 riff 和女主唱的大动态声线,在一众 95 后乐队的软萌浪潮中闯出了一条另类之路。在加入美丽唱片之后,乐队经历了勤奋演出的一年,他们的第一张专辑《Hoo!》在 2020 之夏来得顺理成章。
 
直述宣泄的随性冲动,轻松可爱的日常脑洞,隐秘私人的情感记录……百变的自我塑造了专辑中多变的歌曲风格。以 Indie Rock 为主线,8首歌曲中穿插着乐队成员日常中的雀跃、消沉与奇思妙想,就像他们的自制 MV,记录着每秒二十四格的生活。《BAKA》被罗隽称为“日系蒙太奇杀手小说篇章”,是全专生猛粗粝之最,也是百发百中的现场燃点;但杀手们也会在城市里做一次轻松的“漫步”,对着“啤酒泡泡”陷入沉思,会经历《Gill》那样充满未知但又无比确信的爱情……或者向着最终要去的那个地方拼命奔跑,张开双臂发出“世界啊”的呐喊。
 
专辑封面由台湾插画师陈念莹创作,她是主唱罗隽的 ins 好友。为 Hoo! 乐队作品所打动,陈念莹将作品中一贯的装饰感和蓬勃朝气注入此次唱片设计。此前发布的 MV《布鲁布鲁》中的熊猫布鲁的形象也在专辑封面上得以延续,从自己的房间走出去之后,它还在继续探索着这个世界,未来还要肆意生长。
  
正所谓“不要去证明至为真实之事的存在,要去相信。” 在《Hoo!》的30分钟里,他们无所顾忌。
