“Losing the absurd, a beautiful haze, the sun and moon as usual, fluctuating into madness”
Since 2008, artists such as Kitchen. Label’s very own ASPIDISTRAFLY (Singapore) and Flica (Malaysia) have ventured successfully to Japan, presented music made in the Asia Pacific to the rest of the world. Following in these footsteps, electronic trio Evade have been honing their repertoire of sounds crafted from within their immediate surroundings of the urban pastoral landscapes of former Portugese colony, Macau. In this much anticipated full-length album entitled “Destroy & Dream”, Evade takes on the view of a distant observer, questioning life, the earth, the universe and the values of its living creatures, yet with the consolation of dreams, seclusion and shelter.
Evade was born in the summer of 2004. Formed by Sonia Ka Ian Lao (vocals), Brandon L (guitar) and Faye Choi (sound), the trio released their first EP “Evade” in September 2009. Despite the fact that it was released on a small Macau-based label, with the help of Kitchen. Label producer Ricks Ang (who also mastered the EP and this album), the band attracted critical notice in Japan for their inventive and original style of electronic music, described by some as a wayward blend of minimalist electronic and dubstep combined with an ethereal pop sensibility. In August 2010, Evade was invited by Japanese independent music label PROGRESSIVE FOrM to perform at their curated event “New Sounds of Tokyo Vol.6″. Evade has also toured Hong Kong, China, Malaysia, and Singapore, and has lent support to Kashiwa Daisuke, ASPIDISTRAFLY and Flica’s Asian tours.
