Hyukoh is a juggernaut of the Korean indie rock world. Taking on K-Pop and proving that rock n’ roll and other international sounds are welcome in the pop culture scene best known for sugary sweet pop, they’ve climbed the charts and garnered considerable critical acclaim. While their retro-leaning fashion sense nods to something else, musically they run the gamut from gentle indie rock and folk to hard-hitting punk and rap touches. Extremely versatile musicians, and multi-lingual singers, Hyukoh is set for even further world domination. While in NYC on their first ever North American tour, they stopped by to share their music with us in this session, recorded live at Serious Business Music in DUMBO.
Hyukoh’s 23 is available now.
