ADOY is a four-member electronic rock band from South Korea, and officially made their mark in the scene with the release of their first EP “CATNIP” in 2017. The team consists of members Oh Juhwan (Vocalist/Guitarist), Zee (Synthesizer), Jung Dayoung (Bassist) and Park Geunchang (Drums). The members were previously from prominent indie bands (such as Eastern Sidekick, From The Airport, donawhale), and here’s a fun fact! The group name ADOY as well as the group’s music were inspired by the cat living in member Juhwan’s house, named Yoda!
ADOY released their single YOUNG in May 2018 and subsequently released their second EP “LOVE” in June. They gained recognition for their unique dreamy and upbeat synth-pop sound, with the track “Wonder” (from “LOVE” EP) topping the Korean Apple Music Electronic Chart in the same month of release. They also received a nomination at the national Korean Music Awards for Best Modern Rock Song in early 2018.
Dubbed by Buzzfeed UK as one of the “10 Korean Indie Bands That Should Be On Your Playlist”, ADOY scored opportunities to perform at numerous music festivals in South Korea, and they are now going global as well. Following their successful club tour in the England, the band will be heading to more overseas stops to perform in Bangkok (October), Singapore (November) and Taiwan (December).
Since ADOY’s songs are all sung in English, it is not difficult for English-speaking listeners to understand the message behind each song. Give ADOY’s music a listen and we hope you have a dreamy magical time with the group this November!
