"What do you about think when you are onstage?" asked SOMA Magazine.
"What Gwyneth Paltrow's severed head must have looked like in Se7en."
Sounds like my kinda Chinese pop star. Or at least the kinda girl I'd like to clap my hands to as she vibrates like a Mexican jumping bean around the stage at Rotture on Friday night.
May Ling stirs up home stewed electro-pop with two-thirds of the electro-rockers Reporter in tow: May Ling (Alberta Poon) on voicebox and Dong Ning (Dan Grazzini) playing electrician.
May Ling's cool, hexing voice lulls you under her spell engineering lovely music for when you're slogging through a rainy Portland afternoon but with just the right pinch of pizazz to make you drool and dance.
Hypnotic beats, breathy vocals and luscious synths combine ringside with everything from Lee's Lion Dance Team to fur covered hula hoops. When you're not on the floor shakin' it like a seizure, you can have this much fun at a May Ling show shakin' your ass.
Bring your glow sticks and drinkin' pants because this little bouncing bundle is joined by a slew of PDX party machines including Breakfast Mountain, DJ Copy, DJ E*Rock, DJ BJ.
May Ling's debut effort Threats dropped on August 28th and you can snatch the Threats Remix album for free.
