Gate To Otherside

Are you stressing out? Are you FREAKING OUT? What you so worried about? Pass through the unexpected door with Gate to Otherside, Beijing’s latest dose of psychedelic brainwave modification therapy. Gate to Otherside is greater than the sum of its parts, but let’s start with those: vocalist/guitarist Sun Heting (aka Monkey), who cut his teeth in the Beijing underground drumming for such luminaries as Carsick Cars and Skip Skip Ben Ben; bassist Alex Turner, who’s also played a turn in Carsick Cars; and drummer Jiang Mengyang, who can otherwise be found shredding the axe in Beijing’s premiere riot grrrl punk unit, Free Sex Shop.

These three twist into stranger shapes here. Gate to Otherside takes the shambolic charisma of early psych pioneers and matches it with the catchy jangle-riffage of Carsick Cars and The Gar, tying their sundry influences together into a tight noise-pop package on par with the current Beijing underground rock’n’roll zeitgeist. Gate to Otherside draws its lineage from the Maybe Mars discography, to which it will add its own debut album in 2017.
