Monthly Underrated K-Pop New Music Releases – August


August gave us many deep emotional ballads from great artists. New singles and albums featured this month were from July 30th through August 26th.

Duo Baby Sister (consisting of girl group Playa’s A Jeong and Labo) released a fierce ballad track “Liar” while D-Day’s “Shiny Day” is a slower and cheerful pop ballad.

Debuting this month is reggae artist Gome with “Dream Song.” The unique and non mainstream sound of the song brings out the artist and his raw voice is showcased greatly throughout. Singer-songwriter Anna(.cha) also debuts with her single “My Angel.” The beautiful melody of the self-titled track “My Angel” displays her sweet and lovely vocals.

Soum Band’s “A Little Girl’s Prayer” is a medium-tempo indie track with a soothing melody whereas we see 2LSON return with a new single featuring hip hop vocalist Crybaby and Show Me the Money 2’s rapper DinDin. 2LSON plans to release a mini album in October. To end, Ju Bora released her heartwarming track “Hello.” The touching lyrics fused with the acoustic guitar music gives the feeling of a dramatic passionate emotion.
