China's New Pop Music Group Advocates "Freedom, Not Bounded By Frames"

Rewind to China's "Husband Exhibition" earlier this month and Quartz reports you will watch Acrush, the country's hot new "boy band," perform.

The event, which was held at different Chinese universities to showcase pop talent from artists on Tencent's streaming site, got its name based on the way "China's female fans refer to male pop stars who are so charming they fantasize about marrying them."

Though Acrush was one of the groups to perform at the exhibition, they were different from the others, not necessarily in style or sound, but in sex.

That's right, this hot new "boy band" is actually made up of five androgynous females who are "mostly in their early twenties, who all have edgy short hairstyles and dress like a bunch of boyish hearthrobs."

With over 900,000 followers on their fan page, the group has found its spotlight among the other competing Chinese pop bands, becoming "a group advocating freedom, not bounded by frames."

Stay tuned for the release of an official music video at the end of April.
