7 K-Indie Songs (That Aren't Cherry Blossom Ending) To Get You in the Mood for Spring!

Since it is now officially spring (at least in the northern hemisphere) I figured a spring listening post would be appropriate! Not all of the songs on this list are new, but all have great, fresh sounds to get you into the mood for having a great spring!


1. Springirls - Sunwoo Jung-A



In addition to having the word "spring" straight up in the title, the song has a great tangy guitar effect and beautiful vocals and backing vocals to make the song lighthearted and fun. The music video is also beautiful, boosting an assortment of colors and lovely looking ladies! The track was completely written by Sunwoo Jung-A (with the exception of the bass) and was released as a single in 2015.
