I’ve never heard of 백작, but I thought I would give the EP a listen.
001 is a mixture of folk-ish rock and dense indie mixing the two types over the seven songs. The distinct styles make listening to the EP peculiar.
There is a definite theme over the songs, an almost longing in the vocal delivery in conjunction with the sparse instrumentals.
I’m not sure how most people would react to the music because it is a little different even for Korean music. I think indie fans will enjoy the release the most, but listeners looking for something a little different will find it here.
