Hyukoh is finally back with their latest album, ‘23‘. This album is special since there is two title tracks, ‘Tomboy‘ and ‘Leather Jacket‘. Thus, the boys have dropped two music video! They have also dropped the music video for ‘Wanli‘. So, check it out below!
The first music video is ‘Tomboy’. The whole album is the idea that youth has two sides: a side that is bright and beautiful while the other is the feeling of insecure and feeling lost. For ‘Tomboy’, it is a track that showed the depressing side of youth. The music video itself fits amazingly well with the idea of feeling lost yet still wanting to succeed. Especially since the video is in black and white, they have done an incredible job in showing the beauty of youth but also the downfall of it all. On top of that, the animation is done by Park Gwang Soo. He had shown his artistic and creative side to convey what Hyukoh wants.
Their second title track was ‘Leather Jacket’. In this music video, it is filmed in the United States where the children are seen riding around on their motorbikes. The track is oddly very boppy, with a jazz feel. Their voices fits amazingly well with this upbeat track and the electric guitar helps set the mood of the track. The ‘Leather Jacket’ explains about the youth who is going through some ups and downs in his life and viewers get to follow his life.
Lastly, the music video is dropped for one of their tracks, ‘Wanli’. This track has a rock style mixed with a folk style. It oddly matches nicely with one another to bring a very upbeat track between the bass and the electric guitar. Unlike the two other tracks, it has a more traditional oriental vocal sound where it is like the boys are humming a beautiful nature sound. On top of that, they did a great job singing in Chinese.
So, be sure to check out the three music video above! Which track did you like the most? Let us know in the comments below!
