Press Text
“Rookie of the Year & Best Rock Song of the Year” – Korean Music Awards 2018 “There Is No Such Thing As A Perfect Band!” Clash Meets Se So Neon” – Clash Magazine “Se So Neon are the new faces of Korean indie rock” – i-D Magazine “New Wave of New Wave” “Sound of Tomorrow, SE SO NEON” SE SO NEON is a Korean band formed in Seoul in 2016.

The band consists of Soyoon (vocals/guitar), U Su (drums) and Park Hyunjin (bass). They have explored their own brand of lo-fi and vintage sound ever since, with a wide spectrum of musical influences varying from blues, psychedelic rock to new wave and synth pop.
Their live performances, incorporating enchanting vocals and impassioned guitar playing of Soyoon, sophisticated and groovy basslines of Hyunjin as well as unique drumming of USu, attracted a great amount of attention.
They released their debut single [A Long Dream] in June 2017, quickly followed by the 6-song EP [Summer Plumage] in October to critical and popular acclaim. Their 1st headlining show in November 2017 after releasing debut EP was an instant sold-out.
In 2018, Se So Neon was awarded ‘Rookie of The Year’ and ‘Best Rock Song of The Year’ of Korean Music Awards. And they were invited by several international festivals including Reeperbahn Festival (Germany), Modern Sky Festival (US & Canada), Shimokitazawa Sound Cruising (Japan), Megaport Festival (Taiwan), Ear Hub (Hong Kong) and etc..
In 2019, after finishing “Hello, World!” tour across Tokyo, Taipei, Singapore and Bangkok, they will release their new single [go back] in September. and SE SO NEON kicked off the year 2020 with nomination as the member of the 2020 class of Fender’s Next artist development program. The band was also invited to perform at global showcase festivals including SXSW and The Great Escape. This year the band released their second EP, [Nonadaption] this February, followed by the re-release of their single [NAN CHUN] in May. SE SO NEON plans to carry out several exciting projects during the second half of this year. SE SO NEON took its name from an old Korean children’s magazine of the same name, which Soyoon accidentally found in a book about 1980s design at a local independent book store in Seoul. ‘Se’ stands for both the adjective ‘new’ and the noun ‘bird’, while ‘So Neon’ stands for the noun ‘boy’.
