about

“We as human beings are the thinking and feeling part of the universe,” Kim emphasizes, and it’s up to us to carve out our own legroom within it. This sentiment resounds within the fuzzed-out, shoegazey textures of “HeatDeath,” side by side the emotive soundscapes hidden in between quiet keystrokes and abstract confessionals of “Heart On Your Sleeve.” It’s this search for something greater that propels Kim’s songwriting in the painstakingly diary-esque “Dreams of Losing Teeth” (“caught up in the circumstance / it hurts to love with disconnect”), and within the steadfast reverb of the track there’s an underlying hopefulness that perseveres. “Echoes of lonely times / but for now I ride,” he resolves on the title track of the record, and it’s this steadfast conviction through the shimmery web of guitar lines that point to something more transcendent: that there is a light at the end of the tunnel, it’s just your responsibility to carve out an independent path. Even within the delicate interludes and candid voice notes (“Heart On Your Sleeve”), these carefully constructed details are part of the experience: the layers that make up Suave Punk and Kim himself, the soundtrack of an indie film that is as cinematic as real life. When writing, Kim begins every song with the instrumentals, setting the stage for what he has to say before filling in the space, this time with more conviction than ever.
