Say Sue Me are a surf-inspired indie rock quartet from Busan, South Korea. Friends since 5th grade Jae Young (Bass) and Kim Byungkyu (guitar) were introduced to drummer kang Semin and then they heard Sumi’s speaking voice in a cafe and decided she should be the singer. Sumi Choi turned out to be a natural at songwriting.
Formed in 2012, they released their 1st album [We’ve Sobered Up] in 2013 and EP [Big Summer Night] in 2014 on Korean Indie label Electric Muse.
Damnably Records of London, England released a Record Store Day exclusive 7″ EP [Semin] and Compilation album of their 1st album and EP [Say Sue Me] in UK/Europe to coincide with the bands debut UK tour supporting Japan’s Otoboke Beaver that started at a sold out 100 Club in London.
The bands practice room is located in five minutes on foot from Gwangalli Beach in Busan but it’s their love of 60’s surf (The Ventures/Dick Dale) that adds a lust for the aquatic to their sound, tethered with a healthy dose of 90’s US indie rock/pop melancholy (Seam, Yo La Tengo, Pavement).
The band have picked up considerable BBC6Music Radio play from Gideon Coe, Tom Ravenscroft and Don Letts and were included in the BBC introducing Spotify Playlist.
‘Good For Some Reason’ is the bands new single to be released on Damnably as a split 7″ single (w/ Otoboke Beaver) and was premiered in The Fader
Say Sue Me release their second album in the spring of 2018 and have been announced as showcasing at SXSW.
