It’s already July and the album was released 3 months ago. But oh well, their songs are still good. It’s been a while since I listen to a whole album. I usually just listen to one or two songs in music albums. But for AKMU, it’s really different because one of the members, Lee Chan-hyuk wrote, composed and produced all 11 tracks. And he is only 18 years old. Not to mention his little sister, Lee Soo-hyun who is only 15 have such an amazing voice. And yes, Akdong Musicians consists of 2 talented siblings. The entire album is so refreshing and funny too.

“The debut album of AKMU, Play (Akdong Musician album) has more 3,326,063 downloads. This album debuted on number two in Billboard’s U.S. World Albums Chart.”

Each one of their songs are really unique and Lee Chan-hyuk is such a great lyricist. The songs have a really deep meaning especially Artificial Grass & On the Subway. Their songs are really cute, refreshing, soothing and just relaxing. Just the type of songs that we can relate to. My favorite would be Little Star.
