Hopscotch



Hopscotch has been a personal favorite of mine for about a year now. Another gem from China's (mainland) largest indie label Modern Sky, Hopscoth makes mellow & haunting indie/trip hop music. There is something mysterious and dark about Tian Yuan's (lead singer) voice and the overall feel of every song. I love it. All of Hopscoth's songs are in English, I'm guessing it's because Tian Yuan is majoring in English in Wuhan University (my hometown!). I must admit that Tian Yuan's English is a little hard to understand, but if you actually read Hopscotch's lyrics, they're quite different, dark, and awesome.

You should check out "Butterfly", Tian Yuan's acting debut. The film isn't that great, but she steals all the scenes she's in.

I did watch that movie ^_^ A person (noodz-shi!) was looking for hopscotch music after watching this movie and I became interested also. And after listening to Hopscotch I just had to see the movie. It was different, and I like its boldness. For a newcomer, Tian Yuan's acting is awesome. She can do...anything :o)

And I guess she was in another movie recently, but it's horror - so I skipped *_^
