Buzzin'
Demo Album from Love X Stereo
lovexstereo.com


Love X Stereo, formerly known as Skrew Attack (Korea’s very first skate rock band), has marked its reincarnation with stunning new demo album Buzzin'. Buzzin' is an electrifying mixture of Skrew Attack's alternative pop and punk rock styles and a new vein of electronic music, producing novel, experimental sounds. Love X Stereo is not a Skrew Attack side project: it is merely a new name for the band itself as it reveals new sound elements with which it had been experimenting in the days of Skrew Attack.

Skrew Attack's debut album came in the form of 2008's Not Enough Translation, with a strong pop punk flavor. Since then, the band has undergone multiple changes in the course of a long series of live performances. New demo album Buzzin' gives the best illustration yet of what fans can expect from Love X Stereo in future.

Love X Stereo's sound basically consists of electronic music built on foundations of 1990s alternative rock and punk rock. With liberal doses of synthesizing and effects, it is highly danceable. Each of Love X Stereo's sound is a reflection of the combined talents of its three members, each of whom has at least 10 years' experience in the music industry.

What sets Love X Stereo apart from the electronic sounds enjoying a boom in the 21st century is the fact that its sound is created by former rock musicians. This gives it a delicate-yet-powerful, bright-yet-dark, sophisticated-yet-sometimes brutal color.

Opening track “High Road” gives a no-holds-barred glimpse of Love X Stereo's fight to create a new sound. Its title suggests the band's commitment to taking the right path – the path it wants to travel – no matter how hard this may be. The powerful unfolding of its completely rock base, combined with an exciting electronic sound, ushers in an entirely new musical world.

Track 3, “Ocean Breeze,” was the turning point at which Love X Stereo's style underwent a decisive transformation. It emerged from the mind of a bored office worker, stuck in an office and imagining a beautiful beach. The track's highlights are its rattling drums, its mesmerizingly whispering vocoder, its straightforward bassline, its raindrop-like guitar line and its strangely captivating chorus. This track has been tweaked over and over by the band to the point where just listening to it gives a vivid sense of being by the sea, smelling the salty air.

Love X Stereo is totally dedicated to creating the perfect sound, focussing on live performances to the point of obsession. More than anything, it wants audiences to immerse themselves in its music completely and dance, sing and forget themselves.

Watch this space for more material from Love X Stereo's highly experienced members, who do all their own lyric writing, composition, arranging, recording, mixing and producing.

Track Name: High Road
Don’t say, that I ain’t got the hearts for this.

I’m all heart, no need to explain.

Slowly, I’m charging up my batteries.

Time is flying, I see these fools passing me away.



Don’t you say, that I ain’t got the nerves for this.

Well, I know how to play this game.

You got lucky, cuz you got on the freeway,

It’s so easy to give up on your soul.



Hell, I’ve got no fear.

And I won’t shed a tear.

I’m riding without gear.

I’m crashing down, I’m falling over.

Said I’ve got no fear.

And I won’t shed a tear.

Freedom makes me real.

I’m taking down the high road alone.



I know that you’re suffering a lot.

You just need to show us what you’ve got.

Lost in space, you’re wandering so far.

It’s better than not knowing who you are.

I know you want to do it.

I know you want to do it.

I know you want to do it.

I know you want to do it.

I know you want to do it.

I know you want to do it.

I know you want to do it.

I know you want to do it.

I know you want to prove it.

I know you want to do it.

I know you want to do it.

I know you want to do it.



Hell, I’ve got no fear.

And I won’t shed a tear.

I’m riding without gear.

I’m crashing down, I’m falling over.

Said I’ve got no fear.

And I won’t shed a tear.

Freedom makes me real.

I’m taking down the high road alone.
Track Name: Free Ass
Smokey eyes and skinny jeans, red pumps

Dirty moves and swingy black hair, she stands out.

She didn’t need to care what they say about chastity.

She’s on her way to get some white flesh.

She said, “I wanna have sex with Americans, Americans.”

He thinks he’s all over her head.

But all she ever wanted was hot sex instead.

“We don’t need to say it” (whoo)

“They know how we do it” (whoo)

Reading each other’s minds

They’re on their way to get some…. Um um…

She said, “I wanna have sex with Americans, Americans.”
Track Name: Ocean Breeze (ENG ver.)
Come to me, to the open sea

We were swimming by, by the ocean breeze

Come away with me, I can show you why

It’s a fantasy, deep inside your dreams

Come away with me, tell me more

These words will stay beneath the silence

Being away with you is enough

Got so much more to talk about you, baby



Come to me, to the open sea

We were swimming by, by the symphony

Come away with me, I can show you why

It’s a melody, it’s the one you sing

Come away with me, tell me more

Got nothing left to hide about it

Being away with you is enough

Got so much more to talk about you, baby

* What you want is here, just come away with me.
Track Name: Ocean Breeze (KOR ver.)
저 멀리, 저 멀리 가 버린

너의 향기가 나를 달래지

깊은 바다 속, 그 속에 울려진

너의 목소리가 나를 부르지

난 너를 기억해, 하지만

넌 모든 것을 잊길 바래

먼 훗날 언젠가 서로를

정말 원한다면 그 때 우리는…



저 멀리, 저 멀리 가 버린

너의 온기가 나를 감싸지

깊은 수면 속, 그 속에 울려진

너의 목소리가 나를 깨우지

그 때를 기억해, 하지만

넌 모든 것을 찾길 바래

먼 훗날 언젠가 서로를

정말 원한다면 그 때 우리는…

* What you want is here, just come away with me.
