With a sound characterized by reverb-soaked interludes and abrupt tempo changes that quickly lock into muscular hook-filled grooves, these 19-year-olds have already been pegged as one of Beijing’s most exciting new bands by scene guru Michael Pettis, who said that the trio gives him the same gut instinct as Carsick Cars did when they shifted into first gear in early-2005. - We Live in Beijing
"Unassuming" may be a strange word for a noisy punk band, but that's what Birdstriking brings to mind. A new player on the scene, Birdstriking is a typical group of university punk rockers brimming with enthusiasm and passion. Given some time and a little fine-tuning, who knows what they could turn into. - Beijing Gig Guide

On August 26th, Chui Wan, Acoelomate Goat, and Birdstriking performed at the D-22. According to Pangbianr: Finally, Birdstriking went nuts and Lo, It Was Good. I’ve never seen Birdstriking so confident — He Fan and the gang were sweating profusely and appeared to be having a blast. They kept the core solid, the contours fluid, and the beats coming steady, fast, and sharp. The set was energized and energizing and I marveled at how a place like D22 allows bands and audience members to, in effect, grow up together. 
June 10th, 2011, they performed at the Yugong Yishan, as support to Rustic for their record release show. According to Beijing Gig Guide: I definitely came away with a better impression of them than the other week at D-22, but that could have been because I only saw half of their set, and for the last song they invited on stage the experimental violinist Yan Yulong. I have been itching to see Yan for a while now, and while this obviously didn’t display his strengths (he was more drowned out than a useful addition to the music), it did remind me to keep an eye on what he’s doing. On July 16th, they performed at the Hot Cat Club. According to Beijing Gig Guide: I definitely liked them more than at Die! Die! Die!‘s show, but I think the smaller venue suits them; they seemed as though they were swimming on stage at Rustic’s gig. However, as my astute friend Ami pointed out, they are sounding more and more like Carsick Cars as time passes. Which is understandable, of course, since He Fan joined the lineup last year, but still a little disappointing. I figure if you’re going to be a part of different groups, they should serve different purposes for the artists involved: Migratory Bird and Nucleus couldn’t be more different, and The B-Side Lovers is the experimental counterpoint to Hedgehog. But Birdstriking is seeming more and more like a clone of Carsick Cars, which He Fan just inherited. Which, admittedly, isn’t a bad thing — I like both bands — but I can’t help wondering if it must bore him.
