Love X Stereo

If we had to describe the music of Korean duo  LOVE X STEREO in one word… dance-y! Since going electric in 2011, the once punk band has been working to create their own sound, transcending the bounds of standard K-Pop. After releasing EP Glow in 2013, the group started to gain international recognition. They caught our eye last year at CMJ and we cant wait to get them back this year.
