120121 Woolim Ent says Nell is "coming soon"

On January 19, Woolim Entertainment announced that indie rock band Nell will break its 4-year hiatus and return with a full-length album around March.

Mentored by Korea’s guitar hero and cultural icon Seo Taeji, Nell is well-known for producing music that blends emotional lyrics, sedative melodies and mellow vocals for an overall, sentimental sound. The group noticeably draws influences from British bands such as Radiohead, Placebo and Muse.

Nell took time off from the music scene when members joined Korea’s mandatory military service after releasing their 6th album, Separation Anxiety.

Grand Mint Festival 2011, which was held in October, marked Nell’s first stage appearance since their break.  The band gave a subsequent performance in November.

Nell also contributed to the OST for the ongoing KBS2 series, Ojakyo Brothers, and on January 9, vocalist Kim Jong-wan appeared as a guest judge for MBC’s Star Audition: The Great Birth.
