The Sign of Human is a Taiwanese shoegazing band founded in 2011, Taipei. Inspired by 80’s Manchester and Glasgow, and Iceland music since 2000, their sound is characterized by the genres of experimental rock, shoegazing and noise. The mixture of the psychedelic, ethereal guitar sound, pulsing bass line and the dark, well-rounded drums create a trippy atmosphere like finding yourself in an immense, unexplored uni- verse. Most of their songs depict the solitude and desolation, which over- whelm the listeners’ souls.
In October 2012, The Sign of Human was evaluated as one of the top ten best new bands of the year by StreetVoice, who is known for scouting potential new indie bands in Taiwan. After that, they released their debut EP, O– —(The First Sign). In the same year, their first studio album Note For Time hit the racks.
The Sign of Human has played in many festivals and gigs including SXSW (Austin), Megaport Music Festival (Kaoshiung), Formoz Festival (Taipei), etc. In 2014, the band was invited to be the opening act for White Lies. The next year, they toured New York for their first time building a connection with this exotic city. Sounding like they are letting rip in the instruments, The Sign of Human carves their own signature and distinctive sound that others must fall far behind.
