The two heroes of Korean indie rock, Kim C and Ko Beom-joon of Hot Potato, are gearing up for an October comeback. As their first comeback since Kim C took off for 15 months in Berlin, it’s pretty big news for indie fans.
Kim C went electronic on his solo work with March’s Priority, but with the news of Hot Potato’s comeback, we’re wondering what Ko’s got to give to their collective sound. Their classics lit up the stage at the Rainbow Island Music & Camping Festival this past June, but this comeback is going to be the first time we see the two together on an album in well over two years. (Last time Hot Potato cut a record was in March of 2010 with the “imaginary soundtrack” Seesaw. The mini-album’s no. 1 hit “Confession” saw moderate success with a Best Band Performance at the 2010 MAMA awards and a Song of the Year win at 2011′s Korean Music Awards.)
As for that comeback, Kim C’s representatives told Naver that the recent solo artist will be working on Hot Potato’s album all summer just to make the October release date.
