3RD LINE BUTTERFLY (SOUTH KOREA)
Introspective post-modern rock striped with moody guitars and smoky vocals, 3rd Line Butterfly is a trio that sublimely soars with velvety sounds from the Korean underground. The legendary Korean rock band 3rd Line Butterfly have excelled in the art of reinventing themselves every time they release something. Whatâs particularly thrilling about the bandâs evolution is that you can hear their pure joy of discovery and risk-taking in each of their new releases.
Their debut album Self-Titled Obsession was released in 2000, and they released 2 more albums before their EP Nine Days or A Million in 2009 which drew a lot of love from the critics. In 2010, releasing the Remastered I-III box set they were invited to Monocle Winter Series in London UK.
Having a tour in North America for 40 days in 2012, they released an English album Ice Cube and in 2013 released their 4th album Dreamtalk. Dreamtalk received the warmest applause from respected critics, media, and the publics. The album was chosen as the album of the year in a number of the media and newspapers in Korea. It was no surprise when they were awarded with 3 prizes on Korean Music Award (Album of the Year, Modern Rock Album of the Year, Modern Rock Song of the Year), and Discovery of the Year Award on Gaon Chart K-Pop Award.
