Track: The Ocean Of Yours | Artist: J_ust | Album: T_wo, Second

Kotaku EastEast is your slice of Asian internet culture, bringing you the latest talking points from Japan, Korea, China and beyond. Tune in every morning from 4am to 8am.  

We’ve barreled through a few straight days’ worth of mainstream K-Pop idol music, which means it’s time to take things down a few notches. Back to Korean indie we go.

This song is subtitled The Song Good For Nighttime Listening, which is very to the point—and also 100% true, as I can attest while finishing this draft at (checks watch) 2:40 in the morning. Everything about this track is chill: the instrumentals are chill, the tempo is chill, J_ust’s vocals are chill. The Ocean Of Yours is the aural equivalent of Arnold Schwarzenegger in Batman And Robin.

There isn’t a lot of information behind J_ust, whose real name is Seo Seok Woo. The earliest release under his name I can find is a 2015 song called Thinking Of Mother, and it’s a wonderful, low-key acoustic track much like this one, if a little less polished.
