ABOUT THE RELEASE
cotoba is a math rock/post rock band from Seoul, South Korea that formed in December, 2018. It features Dafne (guitar/producer), DyoN Joo (vocals/guitar), SEI (bass) and Minsuh (drums).
The band sets out to capture the feeling of loss in between intricate and clean guitar tones, powerful and subdued bass lines, and rythmic percussive elements that overall translates to an immersive live experience.
In the past year, cotoba has played a number of sold out shows in Korea, has extensively toured Japan and has participated in major music events such as Busan International Rock Festival and MU:CON 2019 & 2020. Kanda Shokai, the global instruments company from Japan picked cotoba as a Zemaitis/Greco artist.
Originally slated to perform at Glastonbury Festival in the UK (canceled due to COVID19), the math rock ensemble is proving to be a group to watch out for.
