K-pop is rising to great new heights of success here in the U.S. with BTS leading the charge, but let’s not forget how swooning EXO can be, too. Los Angeles based St. Louis progressive soul talent Brandyn Burnette showcases his creamy chops on a demo of EXO’s Been Through, reminding us how much of a heartthrob this hard working, incredibly gifted artist is. Girlfriend and Cosmos & Creature partner Molly Moore lends her co-writing skills and backing vocals to the amazing rendition of Been Through, which is quickly racking up streams since its release earlier today, while Rice N Peas is on impeccable production duty. As it turns out, Brandyn and Molly are responsible for writing Been Through, which EXO picked up and used a translator to modify into his Korean hit. Stream his version via Spotify, here.

They made be named Bad Channels, but I’m loving everything that this Toronto band is channeling on their latest single Exo. Darkwave, dream pop, synthpop, post-punk, shoegaze, electro… this one has it all. This nebulous tidal wave of whirring synths, billowing vocals, and crashing drums is heavily steeped with 80′s nostalgia. Its Chromatics meets John Hughes, Au Revoir Simone meets TR/ST resplendence makes Exo the perfect Twin Peaks accompaniment. I can totally picture Bad Channels playing this song in the Bang Bang Bar. Exo is the lead single from Bad Channels’ Lost Time I EP, due out June 9th. Head to Bandcamp to pre-order or snag the single.
