Fringe Underground @ Fringe Club
Formed in 2013, Hong Kong, David Boring is named after the unlikely hero from American cult classic graphic novel David Boring. Musical influences of the band include punk, post-punk, noise, no-wave and industrial. Signatured with their dirty, experimental noise, delicately explosive and occasionally violent live performances, DB explores the murky modernity with a ferocious postmodern skepticism, creating a dark, borderline claustrophobic world that either excites or traumatizes.
Since the release of the album in 2017, DB went from being an under-the-radar local cult favourite, to slowly reaching out to an international audience. They were named by i-D, as well as Dazed and Confused magazine, as one of the top 5 bands from East Asia to watch out for. Fueled by a unique blend of unflinching ferocity and poetic eloquence, the band was also featured in the late Anthony Bourdain’s last episode of Parts Unknown. In 2019, DB became the first Hong Kong band invited to take part in the SXSW festival.
