FUCK SAD SONGS AND SLOW JAMS, THIS IS GO CHIC. Go Chic has played with such notable acts as Peaches(CA), Vicarious Bliss(ED BANGER FR), Dandi Wind(CA), Shitdisco(DIM MAK UK), Death is Not My Aim(JP), etc. 2010: SXSW in Austin TX, USA. Fuji Rock in Japan. TAIWANfest in Vancouver/Toronto. Nominated for "Best Pop Song", "Best Electro/Dance Song", "Most Mind-blowing Music Video" by AVIMA 2010(Asia Pacific VOICE Independent Music Video Awards). Won "Best Genre-Bending Act" and the "Tipped 2 Be The Next Big Thing" award by AVIMA 2010. Biography: Go Chic describes their music as “Electro-Hyphy-Chicks, Hybridized Punk-Blues-Rock” or “sound like Peaches, CSS, Le Tigre”. However, it is far too simple to depict them as merely an electro punk band after listening to their debut album- I am Confused. “2010”, puts together electro punk/electro-garage-rock elements that sound like the spark of when Soulwax meets Garbage. 8-Bit inspired tunes reminds people of the 8-Bit Thrash craze led by Crystal Castles. Striding on the steps of Disco-Funk is “Dance With Her”, a perfect tribute to the Disco Punk spirit of DFA. Not to mention “We’re All Lovers & Runners”, where they have a sniff of 80’s New Wave, which is the “happiest” track in this album. I am Confused, takes us through a delightful experience back in the 90’s indie scene, where vocalist Ariel raps like Princess Superstar and at the same time captivates us with a voice that wonderfully parodies Shirley Manson’s(Garbage). The amazing energy that comes out of every song reminds me of the “New Wave of New Wave” Elastica that emerged from the Pre-Britpop days and has every ability to rise as the leading Riot Girrrlz of today.
