Biuret to play in Southampton

BiuretGood news for K-rock fans near Southampton. Biuret, the overall SUTASI Pan Asian winner 2009, will be performing at The Brook, Sunday March 14th at 9.20pm. They’ve also been invited to perform at the International Live Music Conference in London on 12 March. After their Southampton gig they’re off to Vietnam to perform in Ho Chi Minh City, where they headline at The Hi-Fi on 19 March.

Here’s a sample of their style:

At present the only English-language information I can provide about the band is the following press release:

Formed in 2002, Biuret, is a high energy, dynamic Rock Pop Band led by the stunning Hye Won Moon (Lead Vocal, Guitar, Songwriter) and supported by Jai Hyun Ahn (Bass Guitar) and Gyo Won Lee (Lead Guitar)

Biuret released their first EP in 2005 and within months sold out the first pressing. Since then the band has been working extremely hard to perfect their performances, original songs and sound, performing in over 600 live shows from Clubs, College Festivals, TV Appearances, Musical Theatre Productions, Rock Festivals to Opening for British Rock Group Oasis.

This energetic, dominate band manages to deliver what we love about rock whilst still keeping elements of pop in the mix, it is no surprise that they are the Sutasi 2009 Overall Winners (A Pan-Asian Music Search to find the Best Contemporary Act across Asia). Since winning the Sutasi title, Biuret have been busy working on a new album as well as performing in Korea, Australia, Japan and London.

The Sutasi Prize will see the band collaborate with major US Songwriters and Producers to create their first International Release scheduled for May 2010.

Biuret are three beautifully stunning, sexy artists who incorporate strong emotional vocals, infectious live performances and superior musicianship.

This, together with their amazing natural talent, energy and charisma delivers a band that you won’t forget and everyone is going to want to know about.

Their first full-length album, Be full of Spirit: Beautiful Violet, was released in 2007, with their second, Dreams Come True, following in 2009. Both are available from YesAsia, and will appeal particularly to fans of Cherry Filter.
