Profile
Hualun (花伦) is a Chinese band that started in Wuhan as a Britpop influenced band in 2004 and has undergone several changes. The band's interest slowly changed to the howling wall of Post-Rock noise and melody and thus settled on this very sound in late 2006. Since, then they have extensively toured eastern China and have received widespread attention and public recognition. They finally released their highly-anticipated debut album, Silver Daydream in early 2008 and have been regarded as the pioneers of the new wave of Post-Rock bands in China. For their second album, Asian River (2010), they moved to the Modern Sky label.
