잠비나이 (Jambinai) – 차연 (Differance) Review
Jambinai’s first EP was more post-rock and ambient sounds with the use of traditional Korean instruments.
Their first full-length continues the trend, but moves into post-hardcore sounds. The album is less than an hour, but feels like an entire day’s worth of music.
Differance will also alienate listeners. It’s much different than anything else in the realm of rock and outside the boundaries of Korean music in general. But the direction that Jambinai took with their full-length is incredible.
The music may even sound like a bunch of random sounds and noise, but each note is carefully placed to create an overall statement in each song.
“Grace Kelly” may be the song most will be the most familiar with, but it’s different partially because the added vocals and somewhat insane verses.
Jambinai are reaching farther into noise post-hardcore-rock with Differance, but they have created an album that does amazing things.
Whether you dislike what they’re creating, you have to appreciate their abilities.
Jambinai have created a classic album for Korean rock.
