57 to embark on European Tour


In May, 57 (pronounced Oh-Chill) will begin their twenty-four show European tour. This two-piece rock duo from Jeonju features male guitarist Junhong Yun (Jun) and female drummer Seol Kim (Snow). 57 blend influences from alternative, garage and punk rock band to share their own electrifying sound.

Live, the band hit you with a wall of sound you may not expect from a duo, and it does not disappoint. With each track they perform their worth is proven, and the ante is upped. Jun and Snow have an intense energy in their performance, Jun flying around the stage as he plays guitar, Snow head-banging and hair-whipping as she drums. Off-stage they play the role of cool-nonchalant rockers convincingly, but the depth of their music proves they are anything but indifferent.

This tour will mark the second run of UK shows for 57, last year the duo played at Liverpool Sound City. This year their tour will begin at the FOCUS Wales showcase festival on May 11th. Their tour looks set to be the proving ground for material from their upcoming, first full-length album, and should not disappoint.
