A soulful indie electronic outfit that incorporates downtempo, trip-hop, jazz and dance-pop influences.
The artists of electronica music from Taipei known as MATELIN was formed in 2012.Their sound is soft, yet complex, profound, yet delicate. Much of their crystalline sound is derived from the endlessly pretty, subtle, almost whispering voice of female lead singer Asha. The other member is synthesizer/music producer Huang Shao-Yong , and guitarist Lin Yi-Chi. Also deserving much credit is their artistic liaison, Mina Shin, who creates fabulous, minimalistic visual art for their music that illustrates the tales and topics dealt with the songs. Since 2013, they have released two albums Animals in the Room and Hi! MATELIN, in addition to two EPs Ancient Mark and The Girl in the Magic Shoes. The group had been nominated for the Golden Indie Music Awards three times, and have won one Best Electronics Album award.
