Zhou Ma Deng is a four-piece Hong Kong indie band, which takes its name from a type of Chinese lantern that is known for its moving imagery and festive association. The band hopes their music can have a similar effect, and evoke a scene that transverses imagination and reality. Blending each member’s favorite music genres into a big melting pot, Zhou Ma Deng’s music sees hints of alternative rock, nu metal and opera rock. Originally formed in 2003 as a creative outlet for Virtual and Stanley, the band saw its current form when both drummer and bassist and longtime friends returned to Hong Kong. Taking things seriously from September of 2010, the band hopes to bring listeners along for a ride that they won’t soon forget.
