Jambinai share ‘Sun.Tears.Red’

With the release of their new album ONDA less than two weeks away, Jambinai have debuted yet another enthralling single, titled ‘Sun.Tears.Red’, showcasing their extra-ordinary fusion of metal, post-rock and noise. Of the track, band spokesperson Lee Il-woo explains that, “Most people expect Asian traditional music to make something smooth for yoga or meditation. We wanted to break all of that.”

Early acclaim for Jambinai’s upcoming new album ONDA

“A triumph… Countless bands can switch from quiet to loud effectively; few do it with such overwhelming power as Jambinai.” MOJO – 4 stars ****

“Fusing traditional Korean music with post–rock, ONDA is their heaviest yet… ’Sawtooth’ starts as an ambient wash of dulcimers and oboes that mutates into a piece of grindcore, while ‘Sun.Tears.Red’ is a riot of overlapping zithers and post–punk beats… Clever and thrilling in equal measure.” Uncut – 8/10

“With soaring melody lines, ONDA is a seismic return… Especially striking is Sun Tears Red. Culminating in a cascade of bittersweet, melancholy arpeggios, wailing haegeum, pounding geomungo and screaming vocals that wash over like ocean waves, it’s one of Jambinai’s most emotive tracks to date.” Record Collector – 4 stars ****
