I know you all must be sick of me posting things titled “update” and “it’s been a terrible two weeks” but for those who know me or follow me on any kind of platform, you’ll know this year has been by far the worst one in all 28 years of my life.
After finally listening to “Siren” my excitement for Warning has grown exponentially. Since the release of “Gashina” I’ve been wanting an album. When “Heroine” was released I wanted an album. Now, we finally get one, albeit only small. I’m not too sure how the album’s going to relate to those two earlier releases – I’m assuming they’ll be cohesive considering they’re both on this album. Oh, I’m just so excited to listen to it!
The amount of excite I’m feeling right now is palpable. I’m so excited to finally listen to what these girls can do as a collective. I do really like the odd unit songs that were released prior to this so I’m hoping I stumble across some other songs that really tickle my fancy.
I have never reviewed LOONA on this blog before so I’m very excited for both this MV but also the album. I’m not going to lie and say I know the members names or their entire back catalogue but there have been some really good releases I’ve been able to catch from their units pre-debut. I also really enjoy their concept as a group and how the members have all slowly been drip-fed to us.
Due to the sound of “Power Up”, I’m automatically assuming this album is going to be based on their more pop-based sound. I don’t really have a problem with it considering the bonus track is “Bad Boy – english ver” which must be a gift sent from my own personal Jesus – this song is my jam! I’m interested to see what their songs will be like as a collective as well with the seemingly totally different vibes of “Power Up” to “Bad Boy”, I’m interested in how they’re going to make them relate.
I’m a little all over the place when it comes to RED VELVET. On one hand, I love some of their stuff but on the other I have no opinion to the rest of it – mostly their B-sides. In saying that, I’m a ‘new to girl groups’ kinda girl. I come from a history of only following boy groups to broadening my K-Pop intake by paying attention to girl group releases. But RV tends to be one of the groups I really pay attention to due to their more R&B releases (Bad Boy, PeekABoo, Dumb Dumb and Automatic are some of my favourites). This doesn’t take away from their lighter more pop-sounding songs (Rookie, Russian Roulette and Red Flavour) which tend to be bangers that grow on me in a massive way.
So my last video for April was posted a couple days ago which I feel extremely proud about – I’m notoriously know for being SUPER late on my end of month videos but I’m happy I was actually on schedule for these.
