中国民谣摇滚代表

低苦艾乐队是一支来自内陆腹地——兰州的乐队,1999年成立,风格偏向民谣、迷幻,同时又有较强的实验与民族色彩。几经变动后,乐队于2003年正式更名为“低苦艾”。低苦艾乐队以西北人特有的豪情与胸襟检视自己、打量世界,将一缕黄河上吹来的风,一捧祁连山上的雪,一块黄土高原的泥土,揉和成一道不矫揉造作但痛快淋漓,不苟合但绝不疏离内心的风情,以独立自持的态度做着自己的音乐,真挚自然地表达他们对世界的态度、对生活的体悟。他们是中国西北最具代表性的乐队之一。

他们的音乐像一壶刚烈的西北老酒,甘醇清冽,后劲十足,捕捉着生命脆弱的美态,并以明敏的目光打量世界,细致入微。有一种深邃掩藏在他们诗化的语言和音乐后面,互相密而不宣却又和谐无痕。如果能从他们的音乐中打捞到清洁与美,你就会发现那个从现实的虚幻转向内心真实的拐角处。
