Hometown: Busan, South Korea

Genre: Indie Rock

Why We're Excited: Say Sue Me is a Korean pop band, but don't confuse it with the country's K-Pop juggernauts: The band plays a loose-limbed amalgam of jangly indie-pop, handclap-rich girl-group classics and the lightly rumbling sounds of early surf-rock. At once stylish and timeless, it's a sound that's been called "surfgaze," which... actually isn't too far off, as descriptors go.
