K-Indie rock band Wave To Earth has garnered a decent popularity of their own, with their recent concert at Capitol Theatre selling out in just a day. However, fewer may know about The Poles, another indie rock band closely associated with Wave To Earth. Other than sharing the same music genre, Daniel Kim is also the lead singer and frontman for both bands. Despite so, The Poles’ sound is also distinctively unique. 

The Poles first emerged in the music scene in 2017 and consists of members Daniel Kim (guitar and vocals), Kim Kyungbae (drums) and Lee Hwangje (Bass). Their music captures the essence of nostalgia with their melodic and soft rock elements. Combined with a strong band sound and impactful lyrics, their songs deliver the perfect balance of comfort and vigour.

Just don’t move away from my dream
May we stay here forever

You and me holding hands
You and I living on
