Chinese Football tries to keep the original tension of punk music and operating with a DIY attitude. inspired by late 1990s emo pioneers like Jimmy Eat World, Get Up Kids and American Football, Chinese Football specializes in a potent guitar bass driven wistful indie rock sound. Mixing with brain washed guitar riffs with Mandarin lyrics, Chinese Football is devoted to expressing the fantasy of youth and its frustration.
The band joined American Football as a perfectly-matched support on tour.
