Eastern Sidekick Short Info

Korea's garage rock representatives are back with a more powerful and aggressive sound.

Eastern Sidekick is made up of vocalist Juhwan Oh, bassist Sanghwan Bae, Drummer Geunchang Park, guitarists Han Kyul Ko and Inhyuk Ryu. After releasing their first single ‘Monochrome Cartoon City' in 2010, Eastern Sidekick were the indie dark horses in Seoul's live club scene. Winning some of Korea’s most prestigious rookie awards like Olleh’s “Monthly Rookie” Indie Music Award and EBS’s Space GongGam “Hello Rookie" Popular Award, they captivated their fans with charismatic and daring performances.

At international music festivals like Music Matters Live 2013 in Singapore, Summer Sonic 2013 in Japan, and SXSW 2015 in Austin Texas, Eastern Sidekick did not fail to impress by willing the bodies of the audience to move and jump around to their fierce performance.

Now, this past October 2015, Eastern Sidekick finally unveiled their second full length album, [Total Reflection] and it was well worth the wait. The band played to a packed house for the albums first live performance, and if the mosh pit was any indication of how good this album is, it is definitely a powerful experience.
