Today sees the release of The Magnificent Eleven, a new EP by the British/Korean duo WOOZE. It is out via Young Poet.
With 4 tracks, clocking in at just 12 minutes, the album is an unstoppable collection of hits, shaping between avant-garde pop and eccentric psychedelic grooves. An ideal mini-album to get immersed in during the last hot days of the year.
The last track from it, “Huge Axeman”, got a truly amazing animated video. It was hand-drawn frame-by-frame over a period of months by Jamie She from the band. The hilarious visuals take inspiration from 80s cartoons such as He-Man.
Watch it below and buy the release (also on vinyl) here.
British/Korean duo WOOZE (named after a phonetic translation of ‘space’ in Korean — 우주) share a brilliant new single “Cowardly Custard”.
Speaking of it, the band describes the song as, “a rallying cry for all the home slices and shy ones”.
An anthemic and expressive new track follows the previously released songs “Birthday” and “Bittersweet Timpani” from their upcoming and highly anticipated new EP The Magnificent Eleven (which is out September 9 via Young Poet and available as a limited edition vinyl).
Alongside the release, the group has also announced a set of some extra dates for later this year in the UK (find more information about the tickets on the band’s website). Make sure to catch them performing if you have a chance, WOOZE are absolutely brilliant live!
