If only there were actually 25 hours in a day, we could get so much more done with our lives. In the meantime, Thai pop-rockers 25 hours are here to give us a break from our busy schedules with a tambourine and some good ol’ la-la-la’s.
Chochukmo have been dialing in on China’s indie scene since ’05, and they’ve definitely got their groove going. We just had to throw in this video so you could check them all decked out in Christmas lights. So rad.
