Say Sue Me (South Korea)

Ett av 2018 års stora indie-genombrott, Sydkoreanska surfrockinspirerade bandet Say Sue Me, kommer till västkusten och Oceanen i höst!

År 2014 släppte bandet sitt första album ”We’ve Sobered Up”, tätt följt av EP:n ”Big Summer Night” år 2015. Två år senare hade brittiska labeln Damnably Records korsat bandets vägar och de tidigare given slogs ihop till ett och gavs återigen ut, då som bandets självbetitlade debutalbum – också bandets första release utanför Korea. Efter bandets introduktion till en internationell publik, landade snabbt därefter Say Sue Me’s uppföljare ”Where We Were Together” år 2018, vilket hyllades av stora tastemakers såsom Pitchfork, Paste Magazine, NPR, Billboard, i-D, The Independent, Stereogum, MTV, Uproxx, Fader, Drowned in Sound, DIY, The 405 och många fler.

Bandet har turnerat över hela Europa och Japan och var också en del av lineupen på den första DMZ Peace Train Music Festival i Koreas demilitariserade zon – och har vunnit över storheter som Yo La Tengo, Japanese Breakfast, Snail Mail, The Raveonettes m.fl som fans. I maj 2019 blev Say Sue Me nominerade till fem koreanska musikpris (och vannn två av dem), vilket gjorde dem till Koreas näst mest nominerade musikakt någonsin, hack i häl efter det enorma K-Popbandet BTS.
