Upcoming: Winter Pilgrimage – WestByWest, Cod New, Nocturnes (DDC 2018.12.15)

This winter Live Beijing Music has invited two bands – from Xi’an and Wuhan – to make the pilgrimage over to Beijing and light up the scene for one night only. The young Xi’an singer-songwriter WestByWest (named after the famed Hitchcock joint North By Northwest) blew up this year with her sensual trip-hop debut. Utilizing an array of modular synthesizers and vocal sampling in the arrangements, while the aesthetics of WestByWest’s music is digital in a large sense, the emotion is purely organic, evoking a rigid cold serving of haunting beauty and resonating lyricism that lingers long after. Out of Wuhan comes electro rockers Cod New, who have over the last few years become one of the city’s busiest acts – playing everything from festivals to opening for heavyweight groups like Ratatat – their sound finds the ‘balance between electronic samples, musical instruments and all its possibilities only to then restructure that sound into the real world’. Local support comes in the form of Nocturnes, one of the city’s hardest working groups – the indielectronic duo has been on a tear since their dropped their LP last year – full slick downbeat grooves that ripple outwards, ghostly vocals weighed down in emotion, and a keen sense of the bittersweet beauty found in anguish and sorrow.

Cod New (Wuhan 武汉, Electro Rock, Post Rock)

Cod New – Atoms来自LiveBeijingMusic




Structure of the world is cold and precise with humanity shuttling therein. Our band attempts to find a balance between the electronic samples and musical instruments to excavate the sound’s possibilities, and then restructure the sound of the real world.

世界的构造精密冰冷,人性穿梭其中。在电子采样与真实器乐中找寻平衡,挖掘声音的可能,构造声音中世界的模样,It’s Cod New

融合电子、实验与后朋的Cod New是武汉最为活跃的先锋电子乐队。



Nocturnes 曳取 (Beijing 北京, Indie-electronic)

Nocturnes曳取是一支来自中国北京的独立电子乐队。他们的音乐动情迷人,氛围感和沉浸感极强,被乐迷认为兼顾了Foals的情怀力道,Bonobo的灵动迷幻,以及Coldplay的流行张力。 Nocturnes are an Indie-Electronic band based in Beijing, China. 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.

为宣传新专辑,曳取在2018年初进行首次全国巡演,在包括北上广的13个城市中获得了现场乐迷的喜爱。在109日,曳取推出新单《私人情绪》(Any Kind of Mood)。在今年年底,他们将继续6个城市的秋季巡演,并在明年春天进行欧洲的多城巡演。 In support of their album Lines Written in Code, Nocturnes曳取 embarked on their first tour of China in mid-2018, playing over 13 cities including sold-out shows in Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou. Their newest single, Any Kind of Mood, was released on the 9th of September. The band will be launching a 6-city tour in support of the song in late 2018, followed by their first Europe tour early next year.
