Go vote for Gate Flowers as MTV Iggy’s artist of the week. Says MTV Iggy:
One of the bands we have our eye on is Gate Flowers, winners of both the “Rookie of the Year” and “Best Rock Song” awards in the 2011 Korean Music Awards. Their throwback sound takes the dense guitars of Nirvana-era grunge, with occasional forays into Red Hot Chile Pepper-esque funk-rock and riffy metal. They are tight, but not so polished that they lose their edge.
They were the only band of the four groups coming to the Korea Rocks gigs that I hadn’t heard of before. But having listened to their “Times” album, they’re the one I’m now looking forward to the most of all. Tour dates can be found here.
