COLDE is a South Korean singer/songwriter who has established his fan-base as an artist duo OFFONOFF under YG Entertainment’s sub-label “HIGHGRND.”
OFFONOFF has proved its unique positioning from the Korean music industry through its first album “boy”, which was nominated as the Best R&B and Soul Album of 2017, and its track with DEAN was awarded with the Best R&B and Soul Track of 2017 from Korean Music Award.
Recently, COLDE has been exploring wider musical spectrum along with experimental visual components that complements his own artistic vision, distinct from that of the duo. His first EP “WAVE” wonderfully delivers COLDE’s signature hazy rap, a relaxing, lo-fi auditory experience.
Striving for perfection in both musical and visual aspects of his works, COLDE and his crew, WAVY, are set to boast their unique vision, bringing “New Wave for a Change”.
