For the month of September we have many great new releases between August 27 through September 30.
Hidden OST genius, Su Hyeok, who sang the ending theme song for the movie “Holly” starring Girls’ Day Minah, releases his first single “Speak.”The title song “Speak” was written by rapper PK Heman and is a mellow ballad track. The two rappers and producer that make up the trio Vincent shares their debut song “Ghost Girl.” It is an indie fused with hip hop track that sounds great in their acoustic version of the song. On the other hand, Blue Story’s track “Baobab,” with vocals by Lee Hae Moon, is just an absolutely breathtaking piece of music. It is fast paced yet soothing to the heart.
Illy J returned this month with a new single. Compared to his previous track “Stained” released in July, Illy J shows more colors of his music with an electronica track “Sad Electro.” It expresses a sad dreamlike feel followed by the pumping sensation. “Sad Electro” has a perfect balance of sick beats and rap as well.
Enchanted Night is a global project rock band that consists of vocalist Hwi, bassist Jin, guitarist Depp, and drummer Sen. Hwi was a previous member of D.Caprio, an R&B group that debuted in 2007 but has since disappeared from the music scene. Depp and Sen were featured in Super Star K’s Jung Joon Young’s music video “Spotless Mind.” Their title track “Dear Teruteru,” released in both Korean and Japanese, is inspired by the Japanese doll “teru teru bozu” that Japanese people hang outside their windows wishing to prevent rain. The song, however, puts a twist to the original meaning in a new perspective that what the overcast might really wish is rain. The uplifting, modern rock song is about the hope that we can overcome our harsh realities and rise from them.
Please tune in next month for more underrated music. If you missed last month’s releases you can check it out here. Also, if you are interested in one of these artists and would love more information about them you can make a request via comment, Soompi Facebook or Twitter and a profile of any underrated artist will be posted up in the Kpop forum section by yours truly.
