Le Tigre have a huge following, but never quite made it into the mainstream.
Maybe Nova Heart will succeed where Le Tigre fell short.
Nova Heart is the brain child of lead vocalist and former MTV VJ, Helen Feng. Being pushed as the ‘Blondie of China’, we couldn’t resist checking out her new track ‘Lackluster No.’.
The track doesn’t disappoint with its cool bass line and beats, and psychedelic guitar riffs that climax in exploding electronica half way through, not to mention Feng’s luring vocals.
Describing the dance teaser video, Feng says; “A teaser for the upcoming video from Lackluster No This is 4 minutes of improvisation from Beijing based Modern Dance artist Cui Jian. We didn’t do anything just said roll camera and watched mesmerized until I yelled cut. I turned around and the studio was full. That’s how you know you have a great performer, when the show pulls people out of the corners and worlds to become part of something outside of themselves.”
