South Korean surf-rockers Say Sue Me have been on rather a roll the previous two years. Final year, they released their sophomore album Exactly where We Have been With each other, and just a week later followed it up with an exclusive Record Retailer Day covers EP called It is Just A Brief Stroll! This year, the Busan-primarily based band were nominated for 5 Korean Music Awards and took dwelling two — which produced them the second most nominated act of the year just right after K-Pop sensation BTS. We heard from them this previous February with the release of the gentle sway known as “At The Finish Of The Road.”
Now Say Sue Me are back, and currently we’re premiering their new song known as “Your Book,” the A-side from an upcoming double single release. The B-side, “Good People today,” will be out there in two weeks. “Your Book” has a souped-up Yo La Tengo vibe, but transforms into an outright noise blaster on the second half. In between the layers of distortion and melodically perfected lyrics, there’s an element of nostalgia that ventures into shoegaze territory.
Here’s what Sumi Choi, who supplies vocals and rhythm guitar, had to say about the track:
Everybody has their personal books, and stories develop day by day. Some create a quite thin book of poetry and some create a quite thick and complicated philosophical book, and I believed of them placed on a shelf. These stories comfort us and nourish our souls, but in some cases we are overwhelmed by also lots of stories. I believed we really should let other people study our books, not just secret books. If somebody else reads sad or fearful stories, we may possibly overlook them and turn out to be a small lighter. I know it is not the very best issue to overlook, but if you take the burden off your thoughts, every little thing will be absolutely free. In verse a single, we show our challenge and I complain about it and in verse two, I was hurt by it, but in the finish, we’ll be in a position to resolve it with each other. It is a quite uncomplicated construct.
