Korean musician Pal Hwang Dan has announced the release of his new album, ‘2023-2021 Seoul’ with Chinabot. It will be his third release on the label, having released his first two albums - ‘Saneopseonjip’ and ‘A Length of Line’ on the label too, in 2018 and 2020 respectively.
Dan moved to Seoul in 2013 - hence the name of this third album. The tracks display his vision, with the opening ‘Usadan-ro’ providing off-kilter pop alongside a music video which shows Dan simply dancing around his small city apartment.
Other tracks involve melancholic spoken-word and harmonicas, as well as exploratory vocals and melodies.
On the album, Dan says: “I grew up in Anyang City. After I became an adult, I lived in Seoul for a long time. But Seoul always felt foreign to me”, hinting further at his intentions and meanings behind the latest release.
