NoSo is the project of singer-songwriter and guitarist Baekhyun Hwong— last week they released their first single in three years and first label release via Partisan Records, the stunning dream pop track “Suburbia”. The single is accompanied by an engaging and visually striking music video directed by Chantel Simpson.
We’ve had “Suburbia” on repeat all weekend, it’s without a doubt one of the best songs you’ll hear this year. Hwong’s alluring vocals flow beautifully over the captivating production— they truly showcase their impressive guitar skills on the self-produced track. Its infectious chorus immediately draws you in and sticks with you for days. There’s emotional undertones and a nostalgic vibe throughout that instantly connects with listeners from all walks of life, especially those who grew up in the suburbs. This is a song that deserves millions of streams.
“This song illustrates the absurdities of that suburban town (moms gossiping about teens) and the simple, lovely moments I didn’t register as my childhood, like eating golden Oreos outside a pharmacy with friends I had since kindergarten” — NoSo.
