Thank god for good friends, eh? I came across this band just in time for Zandari Festa thanks to the subtle guidance of Rock ’n’ Seoul’s very own headmistress, Jenna Rowe. Biuret is the answer to so many prayers for me: a female-led band reminiscent of one of my all-time faves, Heart, with a Space Oddity bent. It’s everything glam rock is made of, including the powerful set of pipes on lead singer and guitarist Mun Hyewon.
“The End of the World” is a galactic rock anthem that’s brash, bold, and made of as many stars as dance around the cosmos. Hyewon is looking ever the Twilight Princess, her beaded crown gracing her delicate brow as she pounds out the chords on her ax and lays down some exceptionally gorgeous vocals.
The MV comes a day before their new album release and just in time to grace fans with their presence at this year’s Zandari Festa (which begins September 30th). Biuret is definitely a band to look forward to, no doubt their show is every bit as grandiose as their music suggests. Man, I love my job! When I come across music like this, how could I not?
