Carrying a unique brand of Korean music with an indie-rock character matched to lo-fi beats and jazz elements, Wave to Earth offers a relaxing atmosphere amidst a sea of eccentric K-Pop acts.
"We really want to make people listen to our music in a relaxed, comfortable way," the band shared with Bandwagon Asia.
With its full-length debut LP "0.1 flaws and all" floating across airwaves, relaxing definitely describes Wave to Earth's sonic sensations. The album features their hit singles "dried flower", "nouvelle vague", and "calla". Heading on to its first North American tour, the band is jet-set to make its unique sound, rooted in Seoul, known across the world.
Serving a catalog of English-sung songs, Wave to Earth definitely offers a unique taste of Korean music made for the world. Producing its music entirely themselves, the band consists of singer-songwriter Daniel Kim, bassist John Cha, and drummer Dong Kyu Shin. Together, they generate calm waves of sonic experiences through lo-fi indie-rock tracks that never disappoint.
Hoping to "become the new wave", Wave to Earth hopes that listeners can give their self-made tracks a chance, letting its music speak for itself. "This is a no-skip album — all of the songs are beautiful in their own way," shared Malea Nguyen from The Gauntlet. "This album felt healing in the sense that their music shined a light on how beautiful both joy and hardship can be."
You might think of them as the new kids in the block, but one thing's for sure, Wave to Earth isn't here to impress, they exist to soothe the soul. Driven by their passion for music, the band takes great importance in their artistry. They won't dazzle you with spectrums of light, but they'll definitely send listeners to different dimensions of their gentle waves.
