Taiwan’s eccentric chicks: Go Chic

August 28, 2012

Known for their exhilarating live performance, Go Chic is quickly gaining world-wide attention with their tongue-in-cheek lyrics, adrenaline-pumping music and sexy attitude.

Their music has been described as “Electro-Hyphy-Chicks-Hybridized punk-Blues-Rock”. They created quite a buzz in 2010 when they won “Best Genre-Bending Act” at the Asian Indie music awards (AVIMA 2010).

They were also nominated in the “Best Pop Song”, “Best Electro/Dance Song”& “Most Mind-blowing Music Video” categories.

Check their songs out here.

If you had a chance to perform any where in the world, where would that be and why?

Brazil. Because I never been to South America before.I want to see the sky waterfall in the next four years! (Sarah)

If you had a chance to collaborate with any musician on the planet, who would it be and why?

We’ve already collaborated with our favourite musician Peaches! If we had another chance I would say Beastie Boys. They are the coolest who influenced us a lot. (Sarah)

Which local musicians in your country do you most admire and why?

There’s a great band in Taiwan called Forests. I just saw their show last week, which was amazing. Listening to their music gets me excited about music again! (Ariel)

You look into the crystal ball and see your future? What does it say?

I’ve always wanted to move to Europe. So I’m sure in the crystal ball, I’ll be chilling at a beach house by Lloret de Mar, Spain. Or somewhere in Berlin. (Ariel)

Money or fame? Why?

Money, cuz money can buy fame, but fame can’t buy money yo! (Ariel)

What is your all time favourite song and movie? Why?

The Beatles-Across the universe. The Sanskrit in the song means that we can resonate with the universe. It gives me a lot of peace, and it’s kind of an important idea when making music. (Sarah)


What are your thoughts on music piracy?Would you give your music away for FREE?

I have mixed feelings towards music piracy. Creativity comes from existing materials, so it’s not entirely yours to start with. Sharing what you’ve “created” actually benefits everyone in the end and will in turn, inspire more people. But I also think it’s important for musicians and people who were involved in the production to get paid properly for their efforts. (Ariel)
