British Songwriting Duo "Ooberfuse" to Be in Seoul on Sept. 17-21, 2017
British songwriting duo "Ooberfuse"

British songwriting duo, "Ooberfuse," will be in Seoul from Sept. 17-21, 2017. They will be performing a special show for Sofar Sounds and Amnesty International Korea with Korea's YB band.

Never Give Up was written by London band Ooberfuse after several inspirational meetings with Shin Dong-Hyuk in the summer of 2016 during the British band's first trip to Korea.

Leaving your home and motherland in flight from inconceivable state brutality is perhaps the hardest and most dangerous decision a person can make.

Hard because you leave loved ones behind to face the aftermath and dangerous because you can be shot if caught attempting an escape.

Shin Dong-Hyuk made the decision to escape the relentless torture inside one of North Korea's most notorious Labor camps.

Now a citizen of the free world he can never forget the loved ones left behind and will never give up agitating for their freedom.

Ooberfuse will be returning to Korea in September 2017 to help raise awareness and show solidarity with refugees.

They will perform the song live in Sofar Sounds Seoul, Korea on Sept. 20, 2017 as part of Amnesty International's Give a Home global concert series.

Taking place in cities all over the world on Sept. 20, 2017, Ooberfuse have been invited to perform in Korea to join the global line up which includes Ed Sheeran, Rudimental, Jake Garratt, Lianne La Havas and Jessie Ware.

Ooberfuse bio:

Ooberfuse are a songwriting duo composed of Hal St John and Cherrie Anderson from Woolwich, London. They are unafraid to deep-sea dive into the deepest oceans of human emotions to colour-up drab contemporary life. Their songs are audio footprints left behind by people impelled towards invisible things.

On what sets Ooberfuse apart from their peers, an influential UK music critic says: “Ethereal electronic pop with the complex beauty that Ooberfuse has will endure.” Well-crafted songs delivered through powerful, emotional and heartfelt vocals combined with east-meets-west electronic music are Ooberfuse’s trademarks.

One of Ooberfuse’s strengths is their live performance, having played hundreds of gigs all over the world. They are equally at home performing to an audience of 2 million in Madrid, to hundreds in one of Rio de Janeiro’s notorious favelas, or in front of the House of Lords in the UK.

They recently toured the UK, Italy, Spain, Romania, Portugal, Brazil, Canada, the Philippines and Iraq. They have graced the stage of some of Britain’s most prestigious venues – including the O2 in Greenwich, Leicester Square Theatre, Bush Hall and Trafalgar Square.

They embarked on their first music tour in China which includes MTA Festival supporting Example and Rudimental. They also toured South Korea in October 2016 which includes showcase sets in Sofar Sounds Seoul, Zandari Festa and Jeju World Music Festival.

Support for Ooberfuse has come from various credible music tastemakers such as Paul Oakenfold, Sister Bliss (Faithless), Ministry of Sound, BBC Introducing’s Tom Robinson, BBC Radio 1's Huw Stephens, Amazing Radio’s Jim Gellatly, Music Week and DJ Mag.
