Epik High’s High Cut editorial interview: “The latest album perfect for lonely walks home”

Turtleneck tops and checkered coats, gold-rimmed glasses and knit beanies, vintage accessories. Epik High naturally pulls off this shoot’s warm, effortless fall styling. Complete with Tablo and Tukutz’s handwritten notes and illustrations written on the day of, the latest High Cut pictorial feels like a glimpse into the writers’ thoughts. They event hint that the scribbles contain teasers to their upcoming album.

After shooting, Epik High’s Tablo opened up about the trio’s up and coming ninth full-length album.

 

“The way I see it, there are three types of music in the world right now: music on the way to the club, music at the club and music for your lonely taxi rides home,” he said. “The first two are becoming more and more common, but ‘calm down’ music for the hours of dawn are comparatively rare — that’s what this album is.”

He added that although the album will be relatable for those in their 30s, it’ll likely hit home even harder for fans in their teens and 20s.

“Well first off, Haru confirmed that it was good,” he said. “She’s been extremely strict, from ‘Happen Ending’ and ‘Born Hater,’ to ‘Spoiler.’ All the songs she liked from the last album ended up being successful.”

This album is the first after Mithra Jin became the third and last member to get married. He said that the members always make it a rule to be home on the weekends and normally by about 1 or 2 a.m.

And Tablo and Tukutz even have to take their kids to school early in the morning. Breaking a routine ultimately only makes it harder for them, Tablo said.

“In fact, I have to attend a parent-teacher conference with Haru’s teacher on the morning of the album release,” he laughs. “Tukutz has to attend his kid’s field day on the day of our concert.

 

Epik High plans to hold concerts Nov. 3 and 4 at Seoul’s Hannam-dong Blue Square venue, and their pictorial and interview can be found in High Cut’s 208th edition, released Oct. 19.
