Which two bands were chosen as the musicians of August?
The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism has teamed up with Korea Creative Content Agency (KOCCA) in a project to discover competent musicians in the nation. Titled the “Concert Episode Project,” they revealed the musicians chosen for the month of August.
The first band chosen is To Divide the Wind, an ethnic pop band with members previously from Futumayo. Each member already worked in a variety of genres and came together as a four member band. They released their first album, “Live.A(E)nd.Love” on March of 2010 and spent a busy year of concerts and promotions. After being chosen as the musicians of August, the band will go on in October to perform at the Grand Mint Festival concert.
Goodbye Ocean already has many fans in the indie scene for their high quality music and beautiful emotional expression. Also a four member band, they are receiving the passionate support of their fans for their unique performance style and a color and energy of their own.
After releasing their first mini album, “Boy’s Universe,” last year, they’ve gone on to participate in the soundtracks and actually appear in dramas such as SBS’s “I Am Legend” and MBC’s “Playful Kiss.”
Mnet will be airing the two bands’ live performances on the 13th.
