One Punch – 아직 나는 꿈을 꿔 Review

noe punchOne Punch reminds me of a mix of The Pillows and Weezer. It’s not too difficult to get The Pillows reference because One Punch has a similar guitar progression that is familiar with listeners of The Pillows. Weezer is a little more difficult to describe because it’s not apparent through the music, it was just the first impression that I had with the band.

Another thing about 아직 나는 꿈을 꿔 is that is carries similar musical themes of other Korean rock and indie bands, one being the lead guitar using the single note progression through most of the songs. That sounds a little obtuse, but once songs are listened to, it is obvious.

아직 나는 꿈을 꿔 is a decently paced album, though it does feel like it loses some of its momentum from the beginning tracks to the slower songs towards the end. It’s not bad, just a little flat.
