+Description

Hedgehog have outdone themselves with their latest, expanding their sound into pop territory like never before all the while maintaining their noisy psychedelic-tinted  rock n’ roll sensibilities. It’s this balance that turns Phantom Pop Star into perhaps the indie rock group’s best work to date. From the electronic backing in ‘DDDDDDreaMMMMMM’, to the dual vocals that propel ‘Phantom Pop Star’, to the subdued cello work on ‘Paintings’ and ‘Star Shine’, every stylistic choice surpasses its mark, as the band utilizes every trick and nuance of their sound to elevate their dreamy pop world. Most notable is the increased presence of Atom on vocal duties, which complements the soft ethereal temperament of the album so perfectly. Might just be 2014’s first true singular pop album. Give it a listen on douban and preorder it over at bandcamp. "

「Sun Fun Gun」 is out . “ what is probably their best album to date, turning back to their original raw sounds and heavy guitar” --- Time Out Beijing 2012.4


we want to create a new sound feeling of Hedgehog. it combine Punk/Pychedilic/Noise with Hedgehog's unique C86 sound.

Gillian Rivers(Yeah Yeah Yeahs) played vilion on "Choose Whatever You Want All The Time"
Yan Yu Long(Chui Wan) played vilion on "The Loneliest Day"

This is the pleasure of sound by a few Chinese youth living in the beginning of 21st Century, after they have re-considered on themselves and living environment, they send out the message of fighting, self-sarcastic and self-comfort.

After the band finished recording of the gloomy “Honeyed and killed”, they have started production of the new album “Sun, fun, Gun”. This is an album after they have run out from their mental haze, it is also the first album after the joining of new bassist, Fun, which he took part in the recording. Moreover, as Hedgehog has always produced independently, it is an achievement to cooperate with foreign producers for the first time (by a young New York producer John Grew, recorded in Warm Record and Rubber Track), the young Hedgehog always like to challenge, their pleasure comes from non-stop challenges to breakthrough the past.

Hedgehog had a lot of different attempts within 2 years, this can be shown in the DEMO “destroy memories 2011” early released in 2011, this album is more unpredictable and innovative. Similar simple melodies and lyrics, similar scary independent expressions, Hedgehog has been exploring continuously in the past 6 years, they are using their own practice, to walk out a road developing Chinese independent bands, a road belongs to them.

The time of rapid change, the metropolis full of time competitions, how many inches of space are left for the real, pure & passionate youth in the new century China? Experiencing valueless values; Believing in faithless faiths, are you already on the way to the money-oriented life? Blind-eyed and clearheaded, getting married and have kids, are you going to spend your life like this?

The boundary of right and wrong is no longer clear, something should really move on, the rebellion and weirdness of youths are the motivations of all these. The young surfing artists who seem to be idle every day, disregard all personal heroism, they have nothing and will gain nothing, love, loneliness, boredom, failure, autism, pain, laughter, they do not care whether to live in the moment or future.

However, please remember: from the moment we have found ourselves, is the moment where no one could stop us, we will create a new century which you will never understand.

2012, Hedgehog’s fifth album “Sun, fun, gun”is out! Are you ready for the shooting scene?

Ready…Aim…Fire!

「Honeyed And Killed」

After “Noise Hit World” and “Blue Daydreaming”, it was time for Hedgehog to say goodbye to youth. The title of the album Honeyed And Killed sums up the album’s concept. All the songs are about love and death, drugs and politics, credibility and integrity, and the lack of value and respect in China. The result is a big contrast between dreams and reality. Covering the meaning of life, youth, love and death. Tracks that really encapsulate the albums feeling and message are "Kill Your Age" "Honeyed And Killed" "Paper Airplane" "Wet White Doll" “Sparklehorse” and " The End"

Blue Daydreaming」

Hedgehog’s second album was released in March 2009. Unlike “Noise Hit World” which had all English lyrics, “Blue Daydreaming” features seven Chinese songs. Covering such themes as puzzled and nervous youth, and looking towards the future. Crystal clear bright guitars and violent stormy drum rhythms make Blue Daydreaming an impressive album. However what makes it really stand out from the crowd is how these elements converge with the actual lyrical meaning and content of the songs. Tracks that embody this songwriting craftsmanship are "Blue Daydreaming" "In Spring" "24 Hours Rock Party" and "Golden Age, Infinite Sadness", which were all big hits and expanded their fan base in China dramatically. The track "Waiting For The Last Bus" is an unexpectedly sweet moment in the album with singer Atom vocals expertly communicating this hymn to love

Hedgehog’s debut album “Noise Hit World” was released in 2007. Primitive hard-driving rock & roll is mixed with synthesizers to create a fresh and original sound. Sweet female and male vocal harmonies complement this mixture of sound perfectly. If you ever went to school in China you could recognize that the album artwork is a replica of a Chinese primary school diploma with Modern Sky’s staff as the pupils and the boss of Modern Sky is like as the teacher.Featured "Toy&61Festival" "Noise Hit World" "Our Last Word" and "love tosh"
