New Pants are a band from Beijing turning out jams ranging from anything to spaced-out synthy indie rock, to Ramones injected disco numbers. At times they remind me a lot of other contemporary Asian bands like the pillows, My Little Airport, and (although it makes me cringe a little to say this) Polysics. A sense of playfulness and happy melodies contrasted with sometimes more serious takes on their sound, the band is fairly self-aware and seems to poke fun at themselves often or the genres of music they take on. Surprisingly enough, this band is to appear at this year's Coachella, I wonder what the crowds reaction will be? Personally, tracks like "Being Together" stand out much more to me than their poor Engrish dance numbers, but I believe the band is varied enough that there at least a few songs that everyone can enjoy.
