Look At THESE! The Slants Reclaim Their Eyes

TaiwaneseAmerican.org and Turtlistmedia.com present an interview with The Slants, started by their band leader hapa-Taiwanese American Simon Young!

This Oregon-based band combines the sounds of 80’s synth pop with fresh dance-punk melodies and style. Their name reclaims and celebrates the “slanted” eye as beautiful and something to be proud of and they are redefining the unlimited three-dimensionality of the Asian American body with each show they kill. While they are clearly about the music, they also hold social agendas that make this unique band a group to look up to.

Special thanks to special correspondent Vanessa Lee and videographer Randall Ajimine. Video editing by Jason Lee of TurtlistMedia.com.
