The Two Koreas new tune, "Midnight Brown", is a frenetic tune bursting at the seams with both energy and instant catchiness.

The Two Koreas jagged, riff-heavy rock samples from the glory decades in music’s recent past, with nods to ‘60s garage beat, ‘70s British punk, ‘80s post-punk, and ‘90s alternative rock, a sound the band labels “glacial garage”. The Toronto band’s 2007 sophomore effort Altruists tore it up on Canadian radio and earned the group some early blog buzz. The haven’t lost a step in the past four years as they are about to unleash their latest, Science Island on 1 March. “Midnight Brown” is a frenetic tune bursting at the seams with both energy and instant catchiness. It reverberates in the head long after the last notes have sounded, creating a lasting impression in a crowded musical world stocked with ephemeral moments.
