The video/concept reminds me a tad of that opening of Up.  I tried to find a YT vid with English subs but failed.  Only web lyrics I found were very broken English.  So I copied the lyric subs from Netflix.  I can't vouch for their total translation accuracy but they get the point across.  (the concert+video skits film "Mayday Life" is on Netflix, this is the closing song).  I think I like this Taiwan band, apparently been around many years (early 90's?) so they're now all mid to late 40's, still performing/touring. Sorta garage/rock/pop ballad mixture genres.

Edit: those lyrics are long, added a spoiler tag.



It's the final chapter, of the autobiography
Seen all the glamour in the destiny
Blurry pupils, dried skins
That had once been so flourishing

Pick one of your favorite photos
Who was beside you, during those millions of moments
I was like you in that year, flying

Unsettling and unable to forget
But still, I have to open my palms
Whose warmth did I hold onto? It's getting cold.

Is there someone somewhere, waiting for me to go back to what I was?
When my cheeks were smooth and the nights were cool
The world was crazy and love was blooming
Is there someone by my side, listening to me talking about the long life ahead
In your eyes I seem to be forgetful
It's because in my mind I already have the one
The one who is the haredest to forget

In my times there were still record stores, like a museum filled with hope
The Beatles and Guns n Roses, love and sorrow, always singing with pride
Success is like a sand castle, and life is a wave
The waves would flush away all the illusions
Savings and houses, struggles and desires
Becoming empty

Memories are like windows, cold tears in the eyes
The scenery is blurred as if I'm in heaven
The lonely big bed, who comes near my face
Is someone recalling the past with a smile too?
Fumbling and reckless, looking so foolish
The most common days, the most humble dreams
When do we find out, whats worth cherishing
Is there someone there to tell me the truth
Time is the biggest lie
What seems to be usual is impermanent
the actualization of life is only, illusions

This is the final chapter, of my autobiography
Spending a lifetime to write this long poem
The body is freed of pills and empty room
I walk back to the light from the crib
Is someone there who knows the place
I can go back and be with my love
Kids are all busy just let them be
When I'm gone just pretend I'm flying
Flying in freedom

Why has elegance found so little following? Elegance has the disadvantage that hard work is needed to achieve it and a good education to appreciate it. - Edsger Wybe Dijkstra

Might be the single best track Daft Punk ever made, and not just because it's a tribute to one of the true legends & pioneers of electronica.

I wonder if there is beer on the sun

is it tho


too bad I don't like the vocalist

I feel like in this newest incarnation of the band, Gira does feel like he's in the "Jim Morrison" position a fair bit - he seems like the weakest aspect of a lot of his tracks, and yet the music is undoubtedly his vision too. It's a bit of an "unfortunate compromise" perhaps (not a terrible one by any means), but I do find that instrumentally few acts out there pack the punch and pick the kind of momentum Swans do, and with as much colour and texture as they do either.
