Since the mid-90s, Taiwan has had a remarkable and probably disproportionate affinity for postrock, and if you ask around in Taipei about the scene’s defining postrock band, the unanimous answer that will come back is Sugar Plum Ferry. Formed in 1998, the four-piece instrumental group of two guitars, bass, drums and a little bit of synth and electronics has not only been highly influential, their ability to developed a mature sound and perform their songs as a sonic experience is beginning to propel them to distant shores.
In 2009, Sugar Plum Ferry played in the CMJ Music Marathon in New York, and they also made a short tour of China with Japan’s preeminent postrock act, Mono, following it up this year with a solo tour of China. In Taiwan, they’ve opened up for Múm, Macha and Seam. Their music represents a boiling internal intensity which is shared by many Taiwanese youth. The Taipei Times has noted their “slow and deliberate melodic themes played on electric guitar that build into droning rhythms, and dramatic spells of distortion and crashing drums,” adding that “the music can get loud, but ultimately aims to sooth.”
The band has released four albums to date, two of them on small but very accomplished local indie labels, and it has also composed the soundtrack to the independent Taiwanese film Spider Lilies (2007), an arthouse lesbian drama. The first (now out-of-print) album, Missing Something (2001) has taken on a cult status in Taiwan, currently selling for around US$50 on online auction sites. Sugar Plum Ferry released their forth album Hometown of Glitter at the end of Nov in 2013, and has started touring in Taiwan, and in March,2014, they will start touring in Hong Kong, and Mainland China.
