South Korean dream pop quartet Say Sue Me are releasing a new album, The Last Thing Left, this Friday via Damnably. Now they have shared its third single, “No Real Place,” via a split screen video. Watch it below, followed by the band’s upcoming tour dates.
Lead vocalist Sumi Choi had this to say about the video in a press release: “There’s been a lot of parting ways over the years. Spent a long time missing someone. And I usually walk… I gained courage as I walked, and now I think I can overcome the sadness and fear of someone leaving. The illustration is a cat, which the video director uses as an allegory for the four band member drawn and coming together in the end.”
Choi had this to say about The Last Thing Left in a previous press release: “This album has the theme of some realization, eventually the realization of love. Love in relationships, love for oneself, and the ultimate love gained after realizing those two things!”
The band self-produced and self-recorded The Last Thing Left. Previously the band shared a video for the album’s “Around You.” Then they shared “To Dream,” which is the album’s only Korean language song and was shared via a black & white video featuring a human in a dog costume with a surf board. “To Dream” was one of our Songs of the Week.
The band’s last album, Where We Were Together, came out in 2018.
