Chinese Football – “Continue?” 12″ EP
An math-rock/indie-pop band from Wuhan, China. Chinese Football released the 5 track EP Continue? in 2019, as the second part of the “Game Trilogy”. The idea of a band applying a bit of word play and naming themselves after American Football doesn’t look too good on paper, I admit. Thankfully, their extraordinary music far, far exceeds expectations. Yes, an American Football influence is present, but a cultural exchange highlights both similarities and differences, with an end result that is easily defined within the math/post-hardcore/indie classification, (the one that American Football helped pioneer), but that is also clearly indentifiable as their own individual style and sound.
