The music video for tfvsjs‘ “Battle from the bottom” is nuts. The latest single from the Hong Kong instrumental math-rock five-piece gets the cinematic treatment as two women talk, laugh, and cry in red and blue rooms. They fall in and out of love as math rock tears them apart. A mime shows up. Everyone plays cards. Everyone goes home alone.
Like most math rock I listen to (I don’t listen to a lot), I try not to get caught up trying to figure out the meaning of the music and just enjoy feeling smart and complex as glitchy guitar riffs bounce off militant drums. I do enjoy tfvsjs a lot for their Canton twist on math rock, and I hope they keep making music for a long time.
Thanks Unite Asia for the first listen.
