Indie band ‘small o’ releases first full album
Folk band small o has returned with a full album. The band released its first full album Temper of water on May 13.
The band tried various different techniques for this new album. Using the acoustic guitar as its basic instrument, the band members also added the accordion, flute, mandolin and psychedelic sounds to create the best folk sound.
The lyrics to the songs were written with small o‘s philosophy about the nature of human and society. Into The Wild(마의 산) is a song which expresses a man’s feelings when he is standing in front of nature. The members use subjects like a cotton field and an angry bear to express their eagerness to have freedom. These lyrics are what makes the band unique.
small o was formed in 2011, then debuted as the members released their first EP album in 2013. The band showed its potential as it was pointed out as one of the top 4 bands by Hyundai Card Music and selected as one of the top 2 bands by Korea Creative Contents Agency (KOCCA).
The band will be holding its first concert at Veloso (벨로주), a club in Hong-dae, on June 13.
