Entertainment K-Music


Hope everyone had a great Christmas! As we head towards the end of the year, we at Inspire Me Korea have an introspective track to recommend to our readers! OFFONOFF, are an indie duo consisting of singer-songwriter Colde and producer 0channel. They are releasing music through HIGHGRND, who you may recognise as the YG sub-label that is headed by Tablo. Read on for this week’s K-spotlight on their track ‘Photograph’!

OFFONOFF debuted in late 2016, and were snapped up by HIGHGRND, fast gaining a reputation for spotting up-and-coming groups. Their track ‘photograph’ caught our attention, and we would highly recommend taking a listen. We think that this song is perfect for the end of the year! The lyrics of ‘Photograph’ sing of making and cherishing memories, and wishing that time would slow down so that each moment can be remembered.

This is a slow tempo track, though definitely one to enjoy with your headphones on so that you take in all the subtleties of the melody. The bass pounds along with finger clicks in the background during the verses. However, we think that the beauty lies in the chorus, with the swelling of the electronic keyboard and guitar building to create the feeling of warmth.

The accompanying MV is aesthetically beautiful, capturing moments from day-to-day life in Chicago. It matches the mood of the song very well, so it’s worth a watch! Be sure to listen to ‘Photograph’ by OFFONOFF and let us know if you enjoy it!
