Youtube Youku: Gala
A little over a year ago I saw Beijing band Gala play live at Yuyintang. Revisit the review here. The surprise was how popular they were and that YYT was packed with student fans who you wouldn't normally see at a rock club. After a bit of research I discovered it was because they had the underground equivalent of a hit single with their song Young For You, which you can check out at their page here if you want to know what interests the local kids who are not necessarily actively into indie music.
Well, I was looking them up today and saw a post from the band on their Douban group dated March 2009. They basically apologize to fans for having done basically nothing in the five years since their Young For You CD. You can read it here but it's Chinese langauge only.
Fittingly, there's also this nostalgic sounding video available there:
