Go Go Rise – Smartphone Addicts
Go Go Rise (美好前程) — Mei Hao Qian Cheng — is an indie Taiwanese band formed in October 2009 by vocalist/trumpeter Mei and bassist Ah Joe (阿鳩). After a few member stand-ins and switches, Go Go Rise finally got its final line-up with lead guitarist Guang (光), rhythm guitarist Ah Dong (阿洞), and drummer Zack.
The band is interested in and takes its influence from groups as varied as Green Day, Japan’s Asian Kung Fu Generation, and Taiwan’s Tizzy Bac.
The music video for Smartphone Addicts was shot in the greater Taipei area, and was directed by Go Go Rise members Guang and Ah Joe (阿joe) alongside Guang Tou (光頭).
