Region 4 Winner
Life and Time
Quite possibly the most compelling rock band that entered the competition this year, Seoul’s Life and Time floored the judges with a completely unique, almost prog-influenced postpunk sound that immediately stood out from the pack in a very competitive Asian region. Their signature song, “My Loving City”, is incredibly tight and effortlessly navigates through stops, starts and key changes with a deadpan vocal that results in the freshest-sounding rock ‘n’ roll band we’ve heard in years. One listen leaves no doubt that this is a formidable trio destined for bigger things. Hard Rock is proud to name Life and Time Hard Rock Rising 2017 Asian champions.
