Band History: Being made now.
With "Listen To Your Left Brain", the Chinese Stars declare a new cold
war. Formed in 2003, the band’s pedigree reaches back to legendary acts

Here The Chinese Stars set in motion a tsunami of new waves, crafting
an atmosphere of propulsive sonic escapism - fueled by noodle-stringed
guitar riffs, seat of your pants lyrics and hallucinatory synths. This
is a fast, forward audio movement, taking music back to the base pleasures.

lascivious lyrics." - CMJ

a karaoke bar." - Sound The Sirens
