Location: Seoul Korea
Genre: Alternative Dance (Electro / Rock / Alternative)
Haling from the city of Seoul (Korea that is), Love X Stereo’s brings forth a brand new EP release titled “Glow,” which is set for release on September 26 (2013). The sound on this project is a cross pollination of several genres that can only be summed up as Alternative Dance. It is Love X Stereo’s uniqueness that makes their new 7 track EP such a fun and interesting project.
My favorite song on this project is “Soul City (John Gaska Remix)” because it has a great deal of club potential for U.S. markets. It’s a synth-pop groove that could easily feature Will.I.Am on the track, which could bring a lot of great exposure for this band. Right out of the gate the track grabs you with its awesome pop/electronic beat that is heavily laced with synthesizers to provide the necessary bed of melodies. This particular remix of Soul City will get the party started for just about anybody.
In addition, songs like “Lose To Win” and “Secrets” round the project out very well and I couldn’t help but enjoy the projects rainbow of sounds and styles. For the most part, the project is upbeat with honest melodies and lyrics. I’d recommend Love X Stereo to anyone who has affinity for Alternative Rock and Electronic/Dance music.
Love X Stereo is scheduled to appear at a number of U.S. and Canadian music festivals and venues this fall. Don’t miss them! Visit their website to see when they’ll be in your area.
