TV Yellow – Strange Ears Review

tv yellowThe Korean electronica rock genre is something that appears to be growing steadily and from bands like The Ratios to Oriental Lucy, it’s becoming more impressive. TV Yellow’s album Strange Ears takes a slightly different approach by channeling more of the 1980s electronica scene in their music.

Strange Ears is still a fun listen, but with the album feeling a bit like a throwback, it’s a little disappointing at the same time. I do think that the potential of the band is pretty huge because Strange Ears is a good album, they just need to leave the 80s music and enter a different level for electronic rock.

Sometimes even Kpop/Jpop appear and that’s just amusing. The latter half of the album shows where TV Yellow should have made their album not the throwback music from the first half.
