Some of you may know that I’m a big fan of Big Bang but the truth is that I love and listen more to indie pop compared to the popular pop. Big Bang is in a separate category since the boys are sooo talented and awesome 😀
Anyway indie bands are undervalued and most people, including Koreans, don’t really know about them. So here’s some of my all time favs and also some new finds ^^
1. Biuret (뷰렛)
Biuret is a all girls indie band and also the my first exposure to Korean indie music. The girls have powerful vocals and the their lyrics are inspiring.
2. Fatdoo (팟두)
The epitome of good music + entertainment. The songs have some common qualities: weird/cute narratives, sound effects, entertaining lyrics and a story behind each song. You get quite a bit of course language here too, but I love it!
3. Bye Bye Sea (안녕바다)
All boys indie band. Their concept reminds me a little of Taiwan’s Sodagreen, which I absolutely adore. I can’t decide whether I love Qingfeng’s or Namu’s voice more. They have been around for quite a few years but recently gained more attention to their cameo in Playful Kiss (장난스러운 키스)
A recent discovery! Totally my kind of music. I dunno why, but I love narratives in songs ^^
