3 months ago a Hong Kong group emerged from being an underground rock band (Pinkberry) to a female girl group hitting the mainstream pop music scene in Hong Kong 香港. The band consists of 4 different females – Mel (Lead Vocalist & Guitarist), Cathy (Bass), Nova (Guitarist) & Kiki (Drummer). I actually like the idea of a band and I would love it more with the fact that all band members are female. So when I first read about Choco randomly on the internet just yesterday night, I was instantly interested.
After listening to a few tracks which were uploaded on CHOCO’s YouTube channel, I must say that I kinda like their music and they are definitely not that kinda girl group which just use their appearance to market themselves, these girls do have talents with their own musical instruments. Check out the videos below :
女子唱作樂隊Choco由4位熱愛音樂的「Band女」組成，成分包括：25% Mel + 25% Cathy + 25% Nova + 25% Kiki = 100% CHOCO!
Female bands are really rare and I really hope this band from Hong Kong – CHOCO featuring tracks in Cantonese language can make it BIG in coming years. Their music are quite distinctive if you compare them to the other Hong Kong singers, unique. Hope that somehow they can come to Malaysia to have a music showcase or something in near future. Would love to watch/listen them performing live!!
*CHOCO also did a cover song on Beyond’s Amani.
