CGTN's Lisa Chiu visited the Chinese band FAZI / 法兹乐队 just moments before their #SXSW premiere at 3TEN Austin City Limits Live. Check out the band in this 360-degree video singing one of their earliest songs "Control" (控制) a capella.

Part of the song reads:
Time, will you still wait for me?
Time, can you still control me?
Control, I control, I control you.
Control, I control, I control myself.

Listen to "Control" with music:

And stay tuned to an upcoming CGTN report by Owen Fairclough featuring Fazi. #sxsw2018 #sxswcgtn
