Solo artist Holland has released his comeback track ‘I’m Not Afraid‘ which is the first release from his album ‘Holland Twin Single Project‘.
‘I’m Not Afraid’ is considered to be an autobiographical track with lyrics about how he’s not afraid to truly be himself.
The song has a retro, disco-pop feel to it and draws influence from artists such as Robyn and Troye Sivan. It’s a fresh and innovative sound in the world of K-pop which is currently full of RnB and tropical house beats.
Holland‘s vocal is supported and surrounded by layers of synth, and it feels more composed than his earlier release ‘Neverland‘. The nature and beauty of the track is the way it languidly and smoothly reveals itself. It creates a feeling of strength and defiance in its repetition – there are no hooks to drag you in, nevertheless, you will be dragged in because the production on this track is outstanding.
In the music video it looks as if he is throwing a birthday party with all his friends around, but the party doesn’t really get started until his partner arrives. The mood and message in the song are perfectly translated by the video.
