Zhaoze is a well-known indie band from China. Their music is regarded as electronic and psychedelic, combined with progressive rock, post rock, and avant-garde electronic music to produce detail, touching, passionate, and boundless tension in the everlasting sadness. With their profound lyrics, Zhaoze provides us a dark and beautiful poetic world.

Unique live performance is also a trademark from Zhaoze. Apart from drums, guitar, bass, and keyboard, Guqin—one of the most traditional music instrument in China, hand sonic, sampler and effects are used in gig frequently. These additions not only bring innovation to the live environment, but also provide the band greater freedom to create.

The name of “Zhaoze” is an analogy of human’s nearby nature until the home of the spirit —- our innermost secret. Both of them are similar in some ways: fed up yet attached to; fixed yet mobile; ruined yet vital. This could be the best explanation to Zhaoze’s music.
