Don’t wanna disrupt the flow of the world
The more we go through in life, the more we seem to be “cultured”, conforming to the norm, and there will be times where we feel like backing down and compromising.
But then there’s this bunch of people who looks at things in seemingly different lenses, deriving humour from the mundane everyday life and blending it into their music. Rather than worrying about the inevitable and the unavoidable, what better way to make fun out of it rather than dwelling on it.
They are Eggplant Egg.
Eggplant Egg’s first album, ‘Cartoon’ was a highly anticipated album that was released in 2017 and it quickly captured attention, being nominated for “Album of The Year”, “Best Taiwanese Album”, “Best New Artist” and “Best Band Award” in the 2018 Golden Melody Awards. Bagging “Best New Artist” and “Best Taiwanese Album”.
Recently the band has toured Taiwan, Singapore and Malaysia, performing for sold-out crowds.
But this was no overnight success, in an interview after the awards, the band has had their fair share of ups-and-downs. At their lowest point, they had to share a loaf and a jar of jam, and getting by with a monthful of dumplings.
The journey started in 2012 with 5 students from Songsan High, after going through several changes in their line-up, with the remaining core being the vocalist and keyboardist, they strive to spread the spirit in their music to the world.
You will catch contagious emotions from their vocals, rhythmic guitar solos and the beat of the drum at the heart of their songs.
Most importantly, in the coming Tian Kong Music Festival, Eggplant Egg will be bringing along something fresh for Tian Kong audiences! Looking forward to experience Eggplant Egg live? Wait no more and come join us at the venue closest to the sky!
