Sunset Rollercoaster are a romantic pop band from Taipei, made up of Tseng Kuo-Heng (vocals/guitar), Chen Hung-Li (bass), Lo Tsun-Lung (drums), Wang Shao-Hsuan (keyboard), and Huang Hao-Ting (Saxophone). Their music immediately announces that the band comes from a humid, extremely relaxed island, synthesizing influences that have lapped up against Taiwan's sub-tropical shores: soul, R&B, and rock from America, the neon-lit textures and jazz funk musicianship of Japanese city pop, and the earworm melodies and eternal melancholy of Mandarin pop. Added to this is a DIY spirit and garage-punk energy that could only come from years spent playing together in their hometown's fertile underground scene. From these humble beginnings, Sunset Rollercoaster have risen to become bona-fide stars, topping festival bills from China to Japan, and headlining tours in North America and Europe.
