From Music-China Wiki
Five fingers hold together is a strong fist. Formed in the late autumn of 2008 as a Beijing student band, melodic pop punk band Finger Family not only found their own sound, they als have become one of the most fast developing and most active acts on China's rock stages. Countless indoor gigs, festival appearance and tours forged them into strong and skillful musicians within 2 short years.
Even though their music style (J-Pop meets Punk) may be compared to other similar girl pop punk bands such as Joker and Caffe-In which basically comprised out of a cute girly voice and dreamy, drifting pop punk music, but maybe because of the influence of their idols such as Overload, Tang Dynasty, Twisted Machine etc, Finger Family's approach is way heavier and more powerful than what you'd recoken to be called "pop punks" among Chinese rockers. Front girl is sure pretty cute but she also knows how to rock the house, no matter if the audience is a few hundred or several thousands and what is more important, there is a strong and potential voice behind the school girl image, it want be a surprise if we hear more from her in near or far future on other levels.
Signed now to the hopeful Chinese labe Pilot Records certainly will boost their career, their selftitled debut EP which came out in 2009 was nice but there are a lot more to be expected of this incredible fast growing band.
Within the last few year it seems there is a new wave of new and fresh young Chinese rock bands starting out, acting both confident and convincing. Even though formed in 2008, Finger Family definately is one of the best representative of this new wave of Chinese rock. Just like front girl Jojo's natural appearance, they all are cute and naive and yet powerful, i saw them once live on Yixian Festival and they played very tight, they sure know how to rock! Off-stage their are just a lovely bench of humble and shy young kids but on-stage they are a hord of unleashed wild animals. I wonder how come such a young band can have such professional songwriting and playing skills. If i do a festival all my fave Chinese bands, Finger Family would be on top of my wish list and i would grant them the extra play time they deserve to fully expose their energy. So far they already made it to play on all the most important festivals and even appeared on TV serveral times. Unbelievable they still are an unsigned band but no need to worry, just like power girl Jojo said, five fingers hold together is a strong fist that can crush through any difficualties and hindernesses. If they dont come out big time within foreseeable time there must be something wrong with the Chinese rock scene. Respect and all the best! – Yang
taken from beijinggigguide.com:
Formerly W.ING, the newly-named Finger Family (指人儿) is a diverse indie rock band with many varying influences. With a little bit of j-rock, strains of pop-punk, dashes of emo, the rhythm is lively and the melody firmly rooted in rock and roll. They give off a youthful feeling, unrestrained in their enthusiasm, and the lead singer's voice is sensuous and would move even the coolest heart.
On May 1st, 2010, they performed at the Midi Music Festival 2010.
