Probably weekly there are bands that I discover that I should have known about a long time before. 잠 or Zzzaam is definitely one of those bands.
The 2004 album 거울놀이 is simply amazing. With an emphasis on shoegaze, the eleven songs blend into an incredible backdrop of sound. It’s easy to get lost inside the music of the album.
It takes on an even more complex listen to realize that there is a lot more to the music than just what is heard through simple background music.
The slow tempos of the song don’t drag and it feels sad when songs are over because the feeling that envelops the listener is astounding.
