Hidden Herd Presents:


British-Korean duo WOOZE were formed in 2017 by Jamie She and Theo Spark at Brixton art-space Muddy Yard. With their debut EP ‘what’s on your mind?’ and its follow-up ‘Get Me To A Nunnery’, which was produced by The Horrors’ Tom Furse, the band firmly established themselves as one of the most original and exciting new acts in the UK, identifiable by their unique visuals as much as their genre-blending and enigmatic brand of avant-garde pop. Combining 80s pop eccentricity with psychotropic instrumentation, their music is at once anthemic and absurdist, citing an encyclopaedic range of influences from traditional Korean music through to Primus, Japanese funk, ABBA and Led Zeppelin. As a result, the band have received plaudits internationally from Spotify, Apple Music, NME, DIY, Dork, The Line Of Best Fit and CLASH, and have also been consistently championed by BBC Radio 1’s Jack Saunders, KEXP, triple j and Guy Garvey. They’ve also featured in their own video game, supported Metronomy on tour and sold out shows across the UK and South Korea. On their latest four-track collection, ‘The Magnificent Eleven’, the band are at their fuzz-drenched and idiosyncratic best, with their heaviest and most danceable material to date. Merging thick, distorted, groove-heavy riffing with 80s glam-pop vocals, the new tracks see them continue to push the envelope into more anthemic and bizarro territory than ever before.
