The Korean-American band formed in 2011 and grew to prominence with the help of massive exposure on the "Jimmy Kimmel Live" show. Recently, the band had a residency at notable L.A. folk venue The Hotel Cafe. Their self-titled debut album is due Feb. 25.

"We get Asian-Mumford because of the acoustic guitars and harmonies and us being pretty Asian," lead singer/guitarist Alex Hwang has said of the band's sound. "... Our only hope is that the music we make is personal enough to stay genuine and honest."

Check out our recent interview with Run River North to learn more about the band.
