South Korean house-pop deconstructionalist Kathy Yaeji Lee — or just Yaeji on the record sleeve — is the latest addition to the Godmode roster. Her self-titled EP is set for release next month, and our first glimpse is a lovely twilight rumination called “Noonside.” With its blacklight glow, subtly jarring rhythmic pulse, and sweetly sighing vocal delivery, it’s like an arthouse K-pop version of a Gold Panda song. “Noonside” is about Yaeji’s travels between New York and Seoul, and it arrives with a self-shot video that chronicles her time in both locations. Watch below.
The Yaeji EP is out 3/31 on Godmode.
