Rainbow Chan hails from Sydney, Australia. I love her cover of The Cardigans' "Lovefool."
While classically trained in saxophone, piano and choral music from an early age, Chan's fondest memories of music are those of family day-trips in a squishy car, singing along to mix-tapes sent from her grandmother in Hong Kong. From Chinese folksongs to 1950's ballads, Grandma's hodge-podge tapes would have a lasting impression on Chan's music.
An eclectic mix of electronic and acoustic textures, Chan's songs are delicately-crafted gems. Live loops are created with music-boxes, thumb-pianos and vintage toys. Lilting guitar is matched with 8-bit keyboards, distorted beats and glockenspiels. Experimentation is interlaced with the other-worldly charm of her voice.
