XXX Releases ‘Second Language’ Album: Listen

41

South Korean rapper-producer duo XXX launched their new album Second Language at this time (Feb. 15).

The 10-track LP follows the group’s November launch of Language as an impactful work that's meant to be seen as “assertion of sonic dissonance from mainstream Korean music.”

The group's sophomore album is constructed round bilingual rapper Kim Ximya’s vitriolic movement, as he expresses discontent with society and the mainstream Korean music trade over producer FRNK’s discordant beats and atmospheric melodies.

Second Language is fronted by the frenetic pounding of “Language,” which exemplifies the album’s title with the distorted repetition of the phrase, “We don't converse the identical language.”    

The album was launched in collaboration with an exhibit of the identical title opening on the One and J. Gallery in Seoul, the place the Second Language tracks had been reimagined as custom-made items of furnishings by Kwangho Lee in an try to mix the boundaries of inventive experiences.

The duo is ready to carry out on the 2019 Korea Spotlight occasion at SXSW on March 13.
