黑暗與希望永遠保持着共生的關係,後者總是在天際破曉時悄然逝去,又在暗夜裡重生。

METER ROOM是於2016年,在香港成立的另類搖滾樂隊。

樂隊的歌曲是由主唱林敬甯(Alfred Lam)和結他手李浩然(Leo Lee)共同創作而成。

音樂被描述為黑暗中閃爍的光,且由真實的情緒所支配。

在2016年,主唱Alfred在香港成立了樂隊METER ROOM,其目的很純粹,只是想做一場演出,當是實現兒時的夢想。與結他手第一次見面的那天,Leo 告訴他:「我只會給這樂隊一年的時間,如果沒有迴響,我以後就不會再碰音樂。」這些謊言會持續多久,目前尚無定論。

樂隊創立初期並沒有一帆風順。在錄製好音樂後,向香港的演出場地和唱片公司發送樣帶,卻遭到無數次的拒絕。「到底,我們甚麼時候才會有演出?」這成了當時的METER ROOM無法躲避的殘酷現實。

由於其他成員相繼離開,為了讓樂隊能繼續走下去,Alfred和Leo別無選擇,只能默默地對着預先錄製在筆記本電腦上的鼓和低音結他排練,歷時九個月。在這段時間裡,為了致敬「一位你可以信任的對手」的單曲《PING PONG PAL》誕生了。作為樂隊的主要成員,Alfred與Leo在創作時彼此陪伴,共同成長,已成了相互信賴的關係。

這三年並不容易,時刻充滿自我懷疑和沮喪,但同時樂隊也逐漸形成了自己的音樂風格。樣帶《04:33》便是錄製於樂隊的黑暗時期,記錄了主唱遭受失眠和情緒崩潰的那一晚。

2018年底,Alfred在工作場所遇到了樂隊現任低音結他手林嘉權 (Davis Lam)。Alfred一直到看見Davis使用低音結他作為手機的牆紙,才知道他是一個低音結他手。而現在的鼓手羅焯賢(Milo Lo)則是由前樂隊成員介紹。此後,METER ROOM便由以上四名成員,正式啟動。

METER ROOM於2019年春天啟動後,跟隨搶耳音樂在多個城市進行了現場演出和巡迴演出,並受邀在草莓音樂節、東海音樂節等音樂節演出。METER ROOM目前正在完成他們的首張專輯,並計劃於2021年發行。

Darkness and hope are always in a symbiotic relationship, with the latter slipping away at dawn and emerging in the night.

METER ROOM is an alternative rock band founded in Hong Kong in 2016. The band revolves around the songwriting partnership of the frontman, Alfred Lam, and guitarist, Leo Lee. Music was described as a glimmering light in the gloomy night, entirely dominated by emotions.

METER ROOM was formed in 2016 in Hong Kong by Alfred with a pure intention ‘just to play one show’, it will be regarded as the realization of his childhood dream. Leo told him on the day they first met, ‘I would only be dedicating for one year, if it doesn’t work out, I will quit music.’ There is no conclusion as to how long these lies will last. Things were not going well from the early days. The band started recording and sending demos to concert promoters and record labels in Hong Kong and received countless rejections. ‘When on earth is the band going to have a show?’ has been the central theme of METER ROOM.

Meanwhile, due to the leave of other members, and to keep the band going, Alfred and Leo had no choice but to rehearse along with the drum and bass tracks they pre-recorded in the laptop for a long nine months. During the time, the demo ‘Ping Pong Pal’ was written to honor ‘an opponent that you could trust’, referring to the songwriting relationship between the two.

Those three years were not an easy period, which was full of self-doubt and depression, but the band also gradually formed their musical style. The demo ‘04:33’ was recorded to the night when the frontman suffered insomnia and emotional breakdown during the band’s dark period.

METER ROOM is showing a turn for the better, Alfred met the band’s current bassist, Davis Lam at the workplace in late 2018. Alfred didn’t know he was a bass player until he saw him using abass picture as a wallpaper. A former band member introduced the current drummer Milo Lo. The band officially set in motion with four members.

The band kick-started in the spring of 2019, gigging live houses and tour across multiple cities with Ear Up Music, and was invited to perform at Strawberry Music Festival and East Sea Music Festival, etc.

METER ROOM is currently finishing up on their debut album, and planning to release it in 2021.

METER ROOM給予我的第一個印象,那就彷彿是一隊從上世紀80年代乘時光機而來的獨立樂隊。METER ROOM祭出的另類搖滾樂,充斥著濃厚的post-punk、noise rock以至gothic音樂底蘊,他們勾勒出的闇黑美學、高壓張力、噪音騷動、撲朔迷離色彩,以至樂隊四人的低調冷酷造型,皆得以師承自80年代獨立音樂的黑暗風格脈絡。「黑夜中微弱的光,在深淵裡暗藏希望」METER ROOM的歌曲,就是帶出希望與黑暗所存有的共生關係。
