9와 숫자들 – Self-Titled Review

9The self-titled release by 9와 숫자들 is difficult to pinpoint in how the songs are catchy even with their simplistic design. Over the thirteen songs of the album, which has what sounds like lounge music influence, the mood is always light and somehow doesn’t get tedious.

I don’t know if I would classify 9와 숫자들 even in the rock genre, though the indie genre as well doesn’t fit. The songs sound like a mixture of older rock with some Latin influences in the polyrhythms that sit in the background. Include the sparse use of synth keyboards and the music becomes even more strange in its catchy ways.

Honestly, I shouldn’t like the album as much as I do because the way the album presents itself is difficult to process even on multiple listens, but it is something to listen to.
