Chinese Finger Trap


It's a sorry scene that will label a band 'metrosexual pansycore'. But, aside from casual homophobia, it's an example of everything Chinese Finger Trap see as being wrong with the state of music at the moment. "It has just become about ticking boxes, really" the band explain. "There are bands that simply fulfil what they expect an audience wants to see, which is why some hardcore bands of the moment can become so successful.

It's a sorry scene that will label a band 'metrosexual pansycore'.

They're just a personality-less blank canvas giving out all the right noises so the audience can throw shapes. They might as well be DJs". So, in this predictable, hyper-masculine environment, Chinese Finger Trap's mix of camp Blood Brothers vocals, Dillinger Escape Plan guitars and At The Drive-In intensity tend to stand out. "We try to portray that as a good thing.

Instead, CFT are creating a sound that's both intense and intelligent, adding Youthmovies-style clean guitars and Refused-esque electronics to their already vicious knife-slash hardcore. And with their forthcoming March tour alongside Enter Shikari - a band who have proved it's possible to do things your own way - and yourcodenameis:milo - perpetrators of the intense-yet-clever sound the band themselves are partial to - Chinese Finger Trap might just yet be proved right. chinese finger trap: Play Dead, We're Handcuffed To The Bed/Pianos Burn In The TV's Flames available on the March tour w/ Enter Shikari & yourcodenameis:milo.
