LIKE: Joker Xue's song "演員"

Updated: Oct 3, 2021

A friend turned me on to the magic of mandopop (Mandarin pop music) and this incredible song. Though I don't speak the language, the music is fantastic: slickly produced, intimate pop that recalls ABBA; with this song (which translates to "Actors"), you'll get some serious "Winner Takes It All" vibes.

But also, the video is a stunner: violent and unsettling, yet beautifully composed, with striking color usage. In honor of my birthday, here's one of Joker Xue's masterful mandopop compositions.
