The music of the South Korean duo KIM SAWOL x KIM HAEWON, KIM x KIM covers a tapestry of emotions. Kim Sawol's dark and cold voice combines with sad and smooth underlying melodies. Kim Haewon, composer and arranger, expresses feelings ranging from serenity to anxiety or an existential void. Their styles and references stretch from the seventies to the present. Some say that their sounds are modern, others that they are sexy. With few instruments KIM x KIM create a dark and damp atmosphere, songs of love with irony and bitterness and a sense of decay, but also transparency.
