Hong Kong Deput for German Indie Group the Notwist

Date: 19 Apr 2018 (Thu)
Time: 19:30 - 22:00
Venue: TTN This Town Needs

Presented by YourMum

Attention all fans of German indie music! The Notwist is coming to Hong Kong!

Presented by YourMum, the German indie group will make their Hong Kong debut on April 19th at TTN! Tickets are on sale now and are selling fast!

Formed in Munich in 1989, The Notwist’s musical spectrum has spanned grunge-metal, indie rock and electronica. The theme throughout, their uncanny ability to craft a series of personal and impeccable records that warmly thread together the far corners of independent music. It’s part majestic, cinematic pop, part kraut-infused jazz and impossible to tie down to just one movement. Across a career which has spanned nine albums, and nearly three decades, The Notwist charm has always been to create music ripe with authenticity and mood, which sounds at once romantic and melancholic. Story telling songs which feel both intimately personal as well as broadly accessible. Soundtracks for the movie going on inside you, which we all can relate. Just listen to “Consequence’ from the 2002 LP ‘Neon Golden’ and you’ll know what we mean.

More events will be coming up soon. Stay tuned!
