WHOwho (후후) : Oh Yeah

WHOwho (후후) : Oh Yeah

The last I heard of WHOwho was from their 2013 single. Now in 2015, the band released Oh Yeah a 12 song full length. It reminds me a lot of Rock’N’Roll Radio and MAAN because it’s upbeat dance rock music. “Sincerely Yours” is a...
Cumeo Project : Promised Land

Cumeo Project : Promised Land

Electronic duo Cumeo Project recently released their first EP through the American label, Shoeboxx Recordings. The group describes their music as a mix between experimental-acoustic, downtempo, and chill wave. Promised Land is intelligent as much as it is sleek, with...
