Their single “Psycho Man” fuses the 60’s swing drum loops, fuzzy guitar riffs and a Middle Eastern-inspired chorus which became a hit on popular China music platform Douban. In May 2012, the band released its first EP “The Missing Queen” on both CD and the band’s own digital distribution site. The music video of the single “Hatano’s Dance” shot up the top 10 most-viewed videos on Chinese portal website Sohu with over 260,000 hits.

About Wooozy Sessions:

Wooozy Sessions is a concert series started by Wooozy.cn with the cooperation of Shanghai’s independent livehouses. For the first seven editions of Wooozy Sessions, we worked very happily with one of Shanghai’s premier music venues, Yuyintang. However, following a “summer vacation” and re-evaluation of Wooozy Sessions’ goals, we have some changes to announce. The Wooozy Sessions will be moving from the second Thursday of each month to the third weekend. Instead of one show, there will be two – an evening gig at Live Bar and an afternoon session at 390 Live. Needless to say, the two shows in two different venues give these bands traveling from out of town double the opportunity to play and showcase themselves to a wider audience. The primary goal of Wooozy Sessions remains the same: to invite talented local bands from other parts of China, who have not yet had the opportunity to come to Shanghai, to play here.

Wooozy.cn is an independent music information site, with a finger on the pulse of the latest and greatest music from mainland China and the world.

It is our goal for the Wooozy Sessions to become a platform for music fans in Shanghai to discover new bands and genres, as well as a method of collaboration and exchange between Shanghai and the other cities of China.

We will be donating part of the profits after every showcase to Shiyi Gongyi, a Beijing-based charity organization that works to provide healthcare to underprivileged children.
