Formed in Shenzhen over a year ago, Pokemon Dad's members were forged in indie rock scenes from all corners of the U.S. Importing the underground basement scene aesthetic to the orient, their music dabbles between dynamic syncopation of trippy mathematical rhythms, with emotionally evocative, nostalgic melodies. Pokemon Dad has been exploring the ethereal auditory landscapes of the accessibly odd. Whether it be struggling to accept the new norms and implications of a digital era, a grandmother who loses her ability to communicate, or a South African friend who's baijiu infused blood causes him to swim in toxic environments, Pokemon Dad's songs are lyrically rich with darkly comical statements about the human condition.
Pokemon Dad （宠物小精灵爸爸)创始于一年前，深圳。它是一只不拘一格的乐队，以后摇滚，数学摇滚，和迷幻摇滚为主要风格（Kevin Daniel Pinner - 鼓手； John Howland - 贝司；Paul Wade - 主唱和吉他；Greg Merrell - 主唱和吉他）他们从美国西雅图，澳四顶，塔拉哈西，和波士顿带了独立摇滚原味。他们的每首歌唯一的共同点就是能够带起听者high得要命。 玩儿着迷幻数学的韵律切分音，弹起怀旧情绪的旋律，Pokemon Dad 探索熟悉而奇特的空灵听觉领域。无论是一位难于接受新一代的数字化音乐的人，一位失去了沟通能力老奶奶，还是一个不幸因白酒沁入血液，酒精中毒而迫使他到有毒环境中游泳的南非朋友，Pokemon Dad的歌曲富含了不同的寓意，并总带着点儿黑色幽默，反应着人们不同的生活常态。
