各位音樂人 – 常渴望當你在台上傾情演唱,演奏到手快要軟時,能讓觀眾全心投入你的表演中? 觀眾們 – 可有想過真正放開懷抱,讓自己沈醉在樂曲旋律中?

社交網絡迷們 – 每次參與活動都忙著更新Twitter、Foursquare、Facebook或Instagram,想抽身了吧?”抗上線Underground”或許幫到你。

Underground舉辦的”抗上線Underground”為你治好無時無刻需要”在線”的癮。這裡有要現場細心欣賞才能真正了解的樂隊,和需要你完全投入才能切身體會的音樂。讓我們先來一劑Innisfallen的搖滾快感,配上Dr Eggs的龐克能量,最後由來至澳門的Forgot The G完成此療程吧!

快來與我們一起,用最原始的方法去欣賞音樂!

Innisfallen
2007 年8月發過第一張專輯 “REALlusion” 後,innisfallen 不再死忠英倫搖滾路線,而決定把一路走來所得的經驗,創造出更細緻,更絲絲入扣的音樂。他們捨棄了千篇一律的節拍和編曲,換來的是曲中計算好,但不穩定的拍子,歌曲的層次更為疏落有致。

innisfallen 曾參與不同位單位主辦的演出,包括獨立廠牌89268、OFTEN 2010 有機公平貿易音樂節和各大學的周年表演,亦曾外訪澳門、廣州和北京,更在跨地域合輯T(h)ree 裡和葡萄牙勁旅 Olga 合作。還有以專輯主打 “Butterfly Effect” 及 “Hair Stings” 製作的音樂錄像,獲得甚高評價。以完全獨立自資的樂隊來說,innisfallen 這幾年可算是獲得豐收。

2012 年innisfallen 的成員有所變動,現時的陣容為 Erik Piece (主音/結他/鍵琴/電腦編曲),Mike (貝斯/和音),Johan (結他) 及 Jon(鼓及敲擊)。

經過一整年的休息和重組後,innisfallen 將於2013 重新出發,目標是製作新專輯,以及參與更多大型的音樂節,以求在有限的時間裡做出最好的成績。他們希望會在之後的大小演出見到大家,也推動一下他們快快發專輯。
