SINO HEARTS -LIGHTNING THE DARKNESS (Chinese late '70s oriented pop) LPTOPSY-TURVY
After their debut album 'Leave The World Behind' and their second album 'Mandarin A Go-Go,' the Chinese trio now releases their third studio album 'Lightening The Darkness.'
It follows their craze of retro power pop like their two previous releases, yet it also continues to explore the depths of late '70s oriented pop music and approaches musicality and instrumentality differently from the band's previous efforts.
This album marks a musical departure from previous efforts, infusing '80s synth pop like The Style Council, The Cure, post-punk like Bauhaus and '90s indie pop as the Muffs and Weezer.
