"The patchwork juxtaposition of image, style and movement – confidence – they are energy incarnate… Qi look like they intend to go global: I hope the world embraces them – Hong Kong could do with a world-beating export right about now .. "
"The Qi phenomenon. Ear worms galore. Qi's choicest charms are stadium fodder" - press : release

glam rock fun" - The Underground HK

Vintage Vinyl HK is super excited to announce its third release - a full-length debut album from Hong Kong's gnarly glamsters Qi. Titled Solstice, it captures these five musical provocateurs as they explode onto HK's music scene, providing an antidote to a back-drop of protest and anarchy - from their first live-gig on the Summer solstice of 2019 to laying down these recordings over the Winter solstice they've postured and posed, riffed and seduced their way into the heart of HK's live music scene.
Qi's Zack, Rob, Ant, Manx and Michael recorded "as live" at Hong Kong's Sunset Studio with engineer Paul MacLean; mastering from the ever patient - and masterful - Phil Daryl Emond.
