Playlist - Dead Buttons' South Korean Journey
South Korean art rockers Dead Buttons release their debut album on 1 July. Listen below as they take us on a journey through their favourite South Korean music.
Dead Buttons are comprised of Korean guitarist/vocalist Jihyun Hong and Paraguayan/Korean drummer/vocalist Kanghee Lee.
A veteran of Korea’s indie scene, Hong previously played guitar for the Seoul hardcore band Combative Post as well as punk bands Sweet Guerillaz and Oi! Resolute, along with the psych- and pop-tinged garage rock act The Infamous Orchestra. He met Lee after Lee had finished his mandatory military service and the two decided to make Dead Buttons.
The band’s first full length album 'Some Kind of Youth' is released on 1 July through Baltic Records.
