Borrowing their name from an overcrowded, lawless and rat-infested slum, Kowloon Walled City’s music perfectly embodies such bleakness and negativity with their hypnotic intertwining of sludge, noise rock and post-hardcore. Opressive but intimate and introspective, and with a thick, palpable tension dripping from each word, each note and each drum hit, Kowloon Walled City have in their latest offering, Grievances, their strongest album to date, which granted them a place in Neurot Recordings’ roster. On their first time ever in Europe, Kowloon Walled City will appear at Amplifest on Saturday, August 20th.

Retirando o nome de uma sobrepopulada e anárquica favela asiática, os Kowloon Walled City encarnam perfeitamente a desolação e a negatividade com o seu hipnótico entrelaçado de sludge, noise rock e post-hardcore. Opressivos, mas intimistas e introspectivos, e com uma tensão palpável a escorrer de cada palavra, cada nota e cada pancada, os Kowloon Walled City têm no seu último trabalho Grievances o seu álbum mais forte até à data, e que lhes valeu um lugar no roster da Neurot Recordings. Pela primeira vez na Europa, os Kowloon Walled City sobem ao palco do Amplifest 2016 no Sábado, 20 de Agosto.
