A mutation is something different, something special or even odd. Mutations can be grotesque, but with the right combinations and some luck, a mutation can be a thing of beauty. It can be fresh and new and break the status quo. This is what the new Korean String-Pop trio, Odd Eye aims to do: create a hybrid of classical and pop music, and mutate the overly repetitive K-pop industry into a new form of exciting music.
The three ladies of Odd Eye are fresh and excited to break into the music business, but this new group has not come to the industry without experience. Eeum (vocal, cello), Hayule (vocal, violin), and Miki (vocal, violin), have studied classical music for their entire lives and graduated with degrees in classical performance. These ladies are finely cultivated musicians.
However, the multi-talented girls were unsatisfied with exploring only one genre of music and desired to create a new genre where they could play their instruments, sing, dance, rap, and show off all aspects of their performance skills with an attractive image.
Though they are a new group with only two released songs, Odd Eye has garnered much attention from K-pop fans around the world. Their goal is to create a loyal fan base and introduce K-pop lovers to the classical style while simultaneously introducing classical lovers to pop. Much like an odd eyed cat who demands attention with its two beautifully different colored eyes, putting the two musical genres together will interest people who crave something different, strange, and beautiful.
With proper exposure, it is only a matter of time before Odd Eye makes a splash in the music industry and gains a large following of devoted fans. The ladies shine during performance and their new angle on pop music will inspire imitation and adoration.
Lets take a closer look at this group!
