New Pants At Coachella

Peng Lei and his merry band of music-makers, New Pants, came to Coachella from China to prove to the crowds that their country "is a unique and special place."

Their multi-hyphenate music style brings new wave, post-punk, indie rock, and synthesizers to the festival grounds, all in the space of one powerful set. Peng Lei told us in February how much Coachella would mean for the band, as it was New Pants' first stateside performance. Here they reflect on the art installations at Coachella, experiment with new material, and let us know what's coming next for the band.
