Witterings from an old indie kid
The Betrayed EP is the debut release from 19 year old Seoul based (and self confessed music nerd) Minjun Kang aka Closer Preys. Musically this DIY bedroom project moves between dream, indie and twee pop. There are some interesting ideas and noises here none more so on Distant Friends with it’s hushed vocals and chiming guitar sound. The wonderfully named I Tried To Swim Across The Ocean picks up the pace adding some noise and layers to the aforementioned guitars whilst Dark Room has that echoing, DIY bedroom pop sound. Promising!
