Jen and I will tell you from firsthand experience that taking on two rock responsibilities at once (i.e. playing Rock Band guitar while singing into a microphone that is duct taped to your chest) is difficult, if not damn near impossible. Perhaps this is why we’re so mystified by the fact that Chicago duet Sanawon (which apparently, is Korean for “fierce”) makes melodious music happen with only two members. Frontwoman Jenny Choi rocks vox, keys, and a saucy haircut all at once–which, quite frankly, might speak more to an upbringing of “be good at everything” than a desire to overextend.
We love their anti-folk-indie-pop vibe so much, we’d even be inclined to brave the winds of Chi-town to see them. How often is a person and her partner, as stated, actually as “fierce” as promised?
