[Indie Pick] Gwac

We’re back with a new Indie Pick and this time we’re taking a closer look at singer-songwriter Gwac.

Gwac debuted as a soloist in 2021 with the single ‘Dogs’. This was in collaboration with Honnip.

A year later, in 2022 Gwac came back with the mini-album ‘MOHO’. The opening track ‘Freudian Slip’ is literally so pretty!

The album description is as follows: “My first EP ‘MOHO’ narrates the themes in order of loss, denial, regret, and letting it be.
The songs might sound a bit abstract and personal, and the themes might sound a bit sad,
but throughout the making of this EP and digging through my past experiences, I learned that sadness has a lot of dimensions for me. Some of the saddest memories are sometimes the most beautiful things I know. There’s no need to try and erase them, nor do I need to run away from them.
It’s not like I’m healed or I’m over my past, but mere trying of letting it be.
By just letting it be, I see a little bit of light in my unsettling mind.”

His following single album ‘Same Old‘ came with two lyric videos. I’ve had ‘Addict’ on repeat since it came out. It’s such a stunning track.

Apart from building a stunning discography Gwac also creates beautiful covers.
