Bursting into the Hong Kong indie music scene in 2005, The Yours have quickly established themselves with a reputation for their stunning live performances, which threatens to overshadow the superb production of their debut album, Abraham.
Variously described as a mixture of post-punk and shoegazing, their music is punctuated by walls of fuzzed out guitar riffs and a steady, almost drum-machine like rhythm section, all reminiscent and worthy of their self-confessed influences, My Bloody Valentine and The Telescopes.
Lead vocalist, Jack's deadpan voice provides a perfect compliment to such tracks as 'Tasteless', with its eerie evocation of the mind numbing vicissitudes of modern life/love.Â Similarly, it is such unimposing but totally catchy vocal/instrumental layerings in the epic 'Missed Call', or 'Abraham' that have secured The Yours' place in 2006 Rockit music festival in HK.

Alok's second album.
Alok's third album. 'One of Hong Kong's leading independent musicians will be celebrating his world-class new album at a revolutionary show at the end of May (2005). He is known as Alok, and his new work 29 Minutes from the End sets his standing in stone – as one of the most remarkable songwriters and creative talents of the Hong Kong band scene. This is a continuation of his former work 31 Minutes to Midnight . The album shows the artist is really coming into his own with an engaging, hypnotic and rocking journey into the consciousness of Hong Kong. Through the work we are introduced to a cast of some of Hong Kong's most inspired musicians. In 29 Minutes from The End no less than five of Hong Kong's most exciting vocalists collaborate on the work. These include the likes of rapper Ghoststyle, Lawwaiyip, Sean@UNiXX and Mable@在草地上 (Joytrendysound).'
