Gong Gong Gong (工工工) is a transnational duo from Beijing, China, tapping into the spirit of Bo Diddley, the Monks, and psychedelic blues from West Africa to Southeast Asia. The group explores the concept of “phantom rhythm”: between Tom Ng’s percussive guitar and Joshua Frank’s melodic, charging bass, an aura of ghostly snare hits emerges over a thumping low-end pulse. Atop this framework, Ng recounts Cantonese tales of absurdity, love and lust with fragmented, wry vision.

Since their first performances in 2015, Gong Gong Gong has played across Asia and toured America with Parquet Courts. They’ve self-released numerous EPs including the President Piano Co. Tape 總統 琴行錄音 and Rhythm n’ Drone 節奏與嗡鳴 I and II. Their first US 7” single, Siren 追逐劇, was released on Wharf Cat Records in November 2018.
