Indie Band 10cm

Posted on: May 15, 2011

This week I went out with friends to sing some karaoke only to find packed houses everywhere (prom’s devil children were out in full force).  So while we drove around for two hours in the middle of the night through drug ridden parts of town looking for a place to hang, I was introduced to some new indie music.

10cm is a Korean band consisting of two members that play the jembe (drums) and guitar.  They’re rising stars in the indie world and have been featured on Yoo Hee Yeol’s Sketchbook.  Here’s them doing a medley of Britney Spears’ “Hit Me Baby One More Time”, Chae Yeons “Two of Us” and Shinee’s “Ring Ding Dong.”

If that got your attention, watch them sing an original, called “Americano.”  The first few chords reminds me of an American song and the closest thing I could think of was Rage Against the Machine’s “Guerilla Radio.”  It totally doesn’t sound like either but I swear I’ve heard that rift before.  Anyways, the song is absolutely adorable.
