No More Tear is a female-fronted pop-rock band from Thailand and it is currently made up of FukFang the vocalist, Chay the guitarist, Ice the drummer, and Tae the bassist. Not quite a band that wants to be pigeon-holed into a particular music genre, band leader FukFang hence defined one for her band, Power Pop. According to the pint-sized dynamo, it is a kind of rock that is super energetic, upbeat, and one that just wants to make everyone get up and dance.
