Unique solo artist OOHYO has released her new track ‘Papercut’ in both Korean and English!
OOHYO is a female solo artist from South Korea, that is currently based in London. She is unique in the fact that much of her music is a mesh of both English and Korean language, and her sound is described as an explosion of synthpop, mixed with k-pop and indie.
The official MV for both versions feature animated keyboards, with human hands controlling them as the song changes. The album cover art for the track was created by famed Japanese art director Kotaro Okusu.
‘Paper Cut’ is a colourful pop song about past injuries. It has an electronic sound, and OOHYO’s charming voice adds a mysterious and dreamy flair. Check out the English version below!
