Hot Potato‘s Kim C has made quite the name for himself over the last few years, primarily for being part of the popular travel oriented 1 Night 2 Days (1박 2일) variety show. This translated into quite the success for Hot Potato’s ‘imaginary soundtrack’ Seesaw (시소), granting them both Best Band Performance at MAMA 2010 and Song of the Year at KMA2011 for “고백”.
After spending 15 months in Berlin, Kim C picked up his instruments again and presented his first solo release Priority today, March 27th. With a base in dub the sounds on this mini album are on the electronic side.
Although having done most of the work on the album’s five tracks himself, for main track “Love” fellow Hot Potato member Go Bum Jun has composed the music. The digital and CD releases are both out now, but a vinyl edition limited to 300 copies should be released in April. A music video is on the way, but it remains unclear when exactly it’ll be released.
