The first step in 2022 is grander than ever.
Red yellow blue…
At first listen, you would wonder if this song is about colors, especially about the three primary colors. Among the colors, the most basic primary colors are red, yellow and blue. As you mix them, they get darker and eventually become black.
Just as each human being cannot be expressed in only one color, although it looks simple, there are complex and subtle insides of us.
A new world where you and I meet, face each other, and get to know each other is like, it seems to be an unknown world in pitch-black darkness.”
“All3” premiered in January 2022 at Saaarang World Fest, a culture festival in India.
The “All3” single project, inspired by the synthesizer Quantum, contains a simple melody, but the sound that seems to explode at any moment in a restrained mood has become more splendid and magnificent than ever. Falling in love with the restrained beauty of the original, the Midnight Cruise remix that immediately follows is reminiscent of a fast-paced midnight drive, just like its title.
This collaboration with producer J-Path, which the band met before working on the single ‘Hide and Seek’ in 2015, was definitely a new attempt to break the way they had been working, and made them look forward to the direction of their music and new albums to be released in the future. A major turning point.

"Sometimes, though," Annie adds, "our lyrics don't mean anything." She is referring to their latest single All3. This atmospheric industrial-inspired track is named after a specific setting on the synth it was made with. By their usual standards, All3 is a subdued song and shows Love X Stereo in a pensive, introspective mood. This is a band looking back on their journey so far, but also looking forward, eager for the next stage of their evolution.
Moody and cool, actually texturally interesting because Love X Stereo are reasonably forward-thinking and aren’t beholden to most of the rest of k-pop’s shitty aesthetic choices.
