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.
