This summer hasn’t been the best in terms of music. While I liked a lot of it, I do feel like it could be a bit more on the exceptional side. Still I am hoping for someone to join 9Muses in bringing something big…obviously APink doesn’t want to be a part of that.
Apink suffer from the same thing Sistar does. They are stuck in an image/sound/concept that has lost all appeal due to excessive use. For APink there was the problem that a lot of people outside of their fanbase did not even remotely care for it anyway (for various reasons). Still at least the songs were nice…or I thought so. And I was hoping for them to move past their cute/safe/boring image that they have had. Hell I thought with this comeback we would finally get past that. Did not happen.
The song doesn’t even make sense. It feels so off and misplaced. Like what about this song actually makes sense? The lyrics are both vague and choppy. Now I know I shouldn’t care about lyrics because they are translated and often times lose a lot in translation. Even the best of translation can never hold a candle to the original meaning. But here…no thank you. Like what the fuck am I supposed to remember? Like girl you just sound bent out of shape over nothing sis. And musically it just feels…like the only parts I am aware of are the verses and the chorus. That’s it. But there is so much to this song. The song starts off with what sounds like something out of a music box, which is actually the best part of this song (plus Eunji, but that’s a given). And then goes into the monstrosity of which I can only assume is based off of something in Japan.
And the part of the song that people should have to remember (the chorus) is not catchy enough to make me forget the rest of this song exist. This is essentially a lazy effort that doesn’t add up well. Even when the beat drops suddenly, which I am assuming was supposed to be some of shit moment, I am still left in a bored stupor waiting for something to actually happen.
The only upside to this is that the video makes them look their age, even though they are doing that let’s
“fake having fun in various places, even though we are completely alone”, and the colors are saturated to make everything look more pleasant than it probably is.
