CLOCKENFLAP 2015 : 10 SMALLER ACTS NOT TO MISS
It's not all about the headliners. Justin Sweeting, Clockenflap's music director, provides his nominations for 10 less heralded acts you absolutely have to make time for.
#1 GLEN CHECK
If you’re looking for me at around 19:45 on Saturday night, I’m going to be (badly) dancing front and centre to Korean synth-rock winners Glen Check. Occupying a musical space somewhere between Two Door Cinema Club, Hot Chip and Justice, it’s a very happy place to be. Come join.
Clockenflap is in its eighth year and this event brought Hong Kong another wild weekend. SCMP was blogging live until Sunday night and we present the full live experience for readers to recap.
Back on the YourMum stage, South Korea's Glen Check put together a jaw dropping celebration of light and sound. With influences from LCD Soundsystem to Daft Punk and Hot Chip, the duo pulled out all the stops to get the crowd moving and prove there's more to their homeland's music scene than factory-farmed k-pop. If you haven't heard of them, get them up on YouTube or Spotify now, because this pair are gonna be big.
