Listen To Imugi 이무기's 'Memories' + 'Swimming' Feat. Hans.

Annabel Kean / Monday 22nd February, 2021 12:28PM

Imugi 이무기 have made my heart grow double the size with two new singles in one go, just a few short months after dropping their gold-standard Dragonfruit EP in 2020. The Tāmaki duo of songwriter Yery Cho and producer Carl Ruwhiu have created a couple of killer tracks, with dream collaborator Hans. in the mix for 'Swimming', a song that grew from the three friends jamming, and developed into a fully fledged electronic-pop cut about challenging your own coping mechanisms. The pair returned to their bedroom roots to create 'Swimming' and 'Memories', having started recordings at Redbull Studios before lockdown struck. Not ones to be thrown off by losing the fancy equipment, Imugi 이무기 completed the project from home.

The second single 'Memories' explores the unhealthy effects of music industry hype and "the toxic ways in which it affects the psyche of young artists". It's a high energy response to feeling pigeon-holed and controlled to fit an expectation, Cho singing "I do whatever I please, fuck what you mean, it's all make-believe". Catch Imugi 이무기 performing these tracks and more at Splore next month...
