Ep.263 Say Sue Me

Joining us on this week’s I’m LIVE is Say Sue Me!
Say Sue Me is an indie rock band from Busan, composed of vocalist and guitarist Choi Su-mi, guitarist Kim Byung-kyu, bassist Kim Jae-young, and drummer Lim Sung-wan.
They released their debut album, “We’ve Sobered Up,” in 2014 and still live in their hometown of Busan in the south-east corner of Korea, where their musical inspiration stems from. The four joined the British record label Damnably in 2017 and then performed at various festivals across Europe, including the United Kingdom, Germany, the Netherlands, and France. What’s more, the British pop legend Elton John introduced the band on his personal podcast, fueling their international success.
Interestingly enough, the qurtet’s physical distance from the capital city led them to break away from the mold of Korean indie rock music, where Kim Byung-kyu says “everything is focused.” Inside their own scene and hometown, they have been able to forge their own sound, which has unexpectedly attracted both local and global listeners.
Last month, Say Sue Me released their full-length album, “The Last Thing Left,” and is determined to start afresh after a pandemic-forced break.
In this episode, Say Sue Me performs their new song “Around You,” and “No Real Place,” their biggest hit “Old Town,” and more to show off their artistry.
