The Lovesong exploded upon the Hong Kong scene in 2004 with their unique blend of punk rock, hardcore, soul and noise, which often features unusual and dissonant chords and progressions, whilst adhering to strong melodies and intricate timings.
Following the demise of seminal indie rock band Whence He Came, guitarist Ephraim Bano and bassist Nic Tse teamed up with vocalist/guitarist Ben Tse and drummer Lee Yat Ding, where the four of them turned to, and drew inspiration from, the American punk/hardcore roots of their teenage years.
Over the past years, the band has had the honour of playing an enviable list of shows, the more memorable being: opening up for Nine Inch Nails at AsiaWorld-Expo, playing before The Young Knives at Clockenflap, representing Hong Kong at Le French May festival 2008, being invited to perform at Midi (China’s largest outdoor festival), and opening up for Japanese post-rockers Toe. They also embarked upon a little South East Asia tour in 2007 with good friends Tookoo (Beijing), where they played to more than 2000 people at Singapore’s Baybeats Festival, as well as experiencing their first stage dives in front of a passionate Kuala Lumpur crowd.
