Korean-American singer and DJ presents debut album: With A Hammer
Korean-American Yaeji has long been the sweetheart of the underground dance scene, but with her debut album "With A Hammer" she aims much further! Underneath what at first glance appear to be upbeat dance tracks lurks a dark underlay of cynical lyrics about prejudice, anger and making the same mistakes as your parents. Let's break the cycle!
“This debut album stands on its own as an artistically daring personal statement.” – Explaim
“Half of rage is confronting the sorrow that births it and watching it metamorphize. Witnessing the chrysalis is With a Hammer’s most generous gift.” – Pitchfork
“It traces Yaeji's emotional development, coming to terms with anger and resentment she had suppressed as a child—a period that she channels into her charged and surprisingly bracing new LP.” – Resident Advisor
