A category we picked for the editor’s/writers’ choice was our choice on which indie or rock group we thought was the best of 2015. Since I’m not an avid K-indie listener, I chose to pick a rock group instead.
My choice for the best rock group of 2015 is Royal Pirates!
RP almost didn’t even have a comeback this year due to member James‘ horrific wrist injury earlier in the year when a door fell on his wrist. His injury was so severe, they weren’t sure if they would have to amputate his wrist or not, but luckily, he has recovered well, although he is still not back to playing the bass just yet, which we can see from their latest music video ‘Run Away‘ where he is behind the keyboard instead of jamming next to Moonchul in the front.
I was so happy for their return this year! And man, was I blown away! ‘Run Away’ is so different from what I’m used to hearing from them. The beginning of the song gets your adrenaline pumping and puts you on the edge of your seat. The entire song, however, is a complete eargasm in itself.
Don’t believe me? Listen to ‘Run Away’ in the video below and judge for yourself. Come on, you know you want to. Don’t deny your ears this masterpiece of a song.
Also another one of my personal favorites is ‘Love Toxic‘, which is the song that really got me into RP.
