Hong Kong Tatler - - Inbox -

usi­cal star­dom is seem­ingly within reach of An­drew Clifford Pong, who re­leases his de­but sin­gle and mu­sic video, Tonight, this month. The son of en­vi­ron­men­tal­ist Sharon Kwok-pong and her hus­band, Stan­ley Pong, he splits his time be­tween Los An­ge­les, South Korea and Hong Kong. He worked with K-pop star Kahi on the track, which draws in­spi­ra­tion from Pong’s di­verse taste in mu­sic, in­clud­ing Asian pop, Bri­tish rock and elec­tronic dance mu­sic. His first tune has quite a retro sound com­pared to other Asian pop songs, with a lot of bass guitar and drums. “It’s some­thing a lit­tle more edgy, and that’s what I wanted,” says Pong. The mu­sic video was filmed in Hong Kong and is inspired by his love of movies. “I wanted to cre­ate a cin­e­matic story,” he says. The pop star is fol­low­ing in his fa­ther’s foot­steps in the pur­suit of mu­si­cal prow­ess—his fa­ther is a keen gui­tarist.
