Say Sue Me - "Around You"

Busan, South Korea's Say Sue Me have been around for ten years, but we're just discovering now. The four piece have released "Around You" which is an impossibly sunny indie rock song. It's reminding me a bunch of Go! era Letters to Cleo meets more modern bands like The Beths. There are even sonic references to classics from the 1960's particularly towards the end. The song is along the poppier side of indie rock, but it's definitely more rock than pop. "Around You" is the kind of song it's impossible not to smile while listening to, if only just a little bit.

Vocalist/guitarist Sumi Choi says of the new song:

"In a world where it became difficult to go outside and meet people freely, I felt like time is totally mine, but I still don't know how to control it. My thoughts linger and dwell within me and my youth is slipping away. Perhaps when I go outside something is waiting for me that makes me think better than this!”

You can watch the video for "Around You" below. The Last Thing Left is due out May 13 on Damnably, and can be pre-ordered here. For more on Say Sue Me, check out the band's website.
