During 2012 Hyundai Card Music launched an initiative to promote Korean indie music, through high quality videos as well as live performances in its then Hongdae popup store location. Now Hyundai Card Music is taking things to the next level by bringing a bunch of bands over to the UK. No official announcements have been made yet, but the Tunbridge Wells Forum in Kent has already listed one of the shows publicly.
The bands playing in Tunbridge Wells on April 24th will be Galaxy Express, Apollo 18, Goonam/Goonamguayeoridingstella and Gate Flowers. As hinted by Galaxy Express in an interview with Chincha earlier this month, we can expect a total of five dates on this tour. We’ll be sharing more details here as soon as we have any.
Galaxy Express recorded a music video for “너와 나” in collaboration with Hyundai Card Music last year:
