Bitter Party is a Los-Angeles-based ghost pop band inspired by war-era music and the melancholy of life. Immersing ourselves in the rich repertoire of folk, pop, and obscure tunes from Asia, our performance references the music in each of our pasts through dusty tapes, songbooks, vinyls, and YouTube channels. We re-animate these transmigrated sounds with megaphones, sanshin, and post-colonial chiptune aesthetics. Pinball disco, electro enka, postcolonial ethnographic pop.
