SoundTube於2014 年尾成立,兩位成員Iris Liu及 DipsyHA均畢業於香港演藝學院作曲系。他們組成的實驗流行音樂樂隊以「將聲音放進試管,研發新的音樂」為使命,音樂風格嚴肅、爵士及電子兼備,他們喜歡在樂曲中加入新鮮有趣的元素,如新穎的聲效、重新編曲,又或加入電子音樂元素。曲種有三文兩語的流行曲及經典爵士樂曲。2015 年,SoundTube以一曲《灣仔幽靈》奪得文藝復興基金會主辦之「潑墨泡樂—【他們在島嶼寫作II】歌曲徵集」優異獎。同年底,他們發佈首張專輯《TOCONNET》及舉行歌曲發佈音樂會。2017年,他們入圍搶耳音樂廠牌計劃最後六強,並參與於麥花臣場館舉行的搶耳音樂節。其後更獲邀到美國三藩市《Noise Pop Music Festival 2018》演出。歌手黃耀明先生曾在Facebook專頁說SoundTube的音樂是「Very interesting Canto Music」。

SoundTube was formed in 2014, by core members Iris Liu and Dipsy Ha who are both graduates from HKAPA with composition as their major. This experimental pop duet shoulders the mission to “blend different sounds into test tube and create innovative music”, and equipped themselves with sound backgrounds on serious, jazz and electronic music, which then became the signatures of their works.  SoundTube won their first kudos in 2015, when their song "Apparition of Wanchai" won the "A Song Worths A Thousand Words – The Inspired Island II Music Collection" music composition contest organized by Renaissance foundation. At the end of 2015, they released their first album To Connect> and held their solo concert.
