Se So Neon
成立於2016年的Se So Neon，平均年齡只有22歲。最初是由主唱兼吉他手So-Yoon（黃昭允）及鼓手Gang-To（林江土）組成的雙人組合進行音樂計畫；加入貝斯手Fancy Moon（文栽萖）後便確立為一三人編制樂團。樂風融合藍調、爵士、迷幻搖滾、new wave和synth-pop；獨特的聲響散發超齡復古成熟感，主唱柔軟沙啞的聲線、極富律動感的Bass Line和靈巧獨特的鼓，讓他們甫推出作品就橫掃獨立音樂界。Having developed from an earlier project of singer/guitarist So-Yoon and drummer Gang-To, Se So Neon were formed in early 2016, completing the current 3-piece line-up in September of the same year with bassist Fancy Moon joining the fold. They have explored their own brand of lo-fi and vintage sound ever since, with a wide spectrum of musical influences varying from blues, jazz, psychedelic rock to new wave and synth pop. Their live performances, incorporating enchanting vocals and impassioned guitar playing of So-Yoon, sophisticated and groovy basslines of Fancy Moon as well as unique drumming of Gang-To, attracted a great amount of attention, which led them to sign to local indie powerhouse BGBG Records. They released their debut single “A Long Dream” in June 2017, quickly followed by the 6-song EP “Summer Plumage” in October to critical and popular acclaim. Their EP release show at Sangsang Madang Live Hall in November 2017 was an instant sold-out and included a surprise guest appearance by Hyukoh, Asian indie sensation and avid supporters of Se So Neon, without prior announcement. Se So Neon took its name from an old Korean children’s magazine of the same name, which So-Yoon accidentally found in a book about 1980s design at a local independent book store in Seoul. ‘Se’ stands for both the adjective ‘new’ and the noun ‘bird’, while ‘So Neon’ stands for the noun ‘boy’.
