Love X Stereo, the electro-dance-rock duo of Annie Ko and Toby Hwang from Seoul in South Korea have regularly featured over the past couple of years.
It seemed to be time to give an overview of sound of Love X Stereo as they released their latest single Hide And Seek for streaming just over an hour ago. Tracks range from synth-wave dreaminess to harder edged rock driven numbers.
The duo utilise the flexibility of the electronics to generate the space they are aiming to explore, to which the distinctive vocal always captures the mood of the music as guitar delivers sympathetic balance and due to their breadth of travel it is always a refreshing surprise to discover their new pieces. Love X Stereo always provide the listener with a minty wash, that leaves you feeling better for having been showered in the sounds. Easy on the ears as it may be, the duo deliver far from anodyne music as the iterations always contain a twist or two of their unique style.
Established in the local scene, Love X Stereo can also be found performing across the international stage and if they happen to land near you, well worth taking the time to catch one of their shows, where a drummer regularly is added to the line-up.
Hide and Seek – Single – Love X Stereo is available on iTunes.*
