Positioned somewhere between electronic, techno, rock, and heavy metal, IDIOTAPE’s unique musical identity is a harmonious blend of influences the members received in their childhood. Also, the sentiments influenced by 60’s and 70’s Korean rock music add to the melody lines, differentiating IDIOTAPE’s music from the rest. Only using synthesizers, rather than a guitar, is unique of this team. Nonetheless, IDIOTAPE is recognized as “an electronic band that is more band-like than a typical rock band.”
Reinterpreting rock and electronic music to their color, IDIOTAPE may have its roots in Korea, but is not regarded K-Pop. Rather, they are considered to be creating a genre of their own.
