Lo-fi tunes take over in the first track ‘ending‘, the piano riff in this song is flawless and makes it such a smooth and calming listen.

away from home‘ is next with some tunes that feel rather melancholic but comforting. This song feels like a tight hug, it’s emotional on its delivery, but I totally dig the vibe. Definitely one of a kind.

With a brighter beat ‘lean on me‘ starts, Kim Jeong_uk’s rapping in this track was super cool and laid back, the mix with the guitar made the lyrical delivery feel effortless and soft.

Enhanced vocals and a lovely acoustic guitar begin ‘write a letter‘, this mix takes over the song along with soft electronic beats, and makes a very chill listen. It’s perfect to listen to on a rainy day. Smooth!

Last on this release is ‘squabble‘, with a relaxing feel that makes it the perfect end for a very much wholesome and very calming EP.


Kim Jeong_uk’s work in ‘l o v e‘ shows that the imperfections of lo-fi music is what makes them the perfect and wholesome listen. The tracks in this EP flow effortlessly and create this small bubble that becomes an experience for its listeners.
