Locomotive (로코모티브) – Beside, Inside Review

Locomotive’s Beside, Inside was a surprise. Labeled as an electronica based album, I was surprised that the album sounds much more like an indie release with electronica accompaniments.

With only five songs, the EP grabs from the first song “Close To You (Feat. 이유진)” is the most indie. The following songs are much more indie electro-pop. But with the light lyrics and strange, but addicting beats Beside, Inside is a great album.

The tone of the album is a little “dated” because the songs sound like an older release even though it’s from 2011. I think there’s a lot of great moments in the music. It’s calming and interesting with an OST influence that didn’t get old.
