N.Flying has been receiving a lot of love lately, especially from label mates FTISLAND, and they’ve now made their comeback with their fourth mini-album ‘How Are You?’ and the title track ‘How R U Today‘.
They’re a busy band having made a comeback earlier this year with ‘Hot Potato‘ and vocalist Hweseung collaborated with FTISLAND‘s Lee Hongki on the power ballad ‘Still Love You‘, and they’ve just finished some concerts in Japan.
With this comeback, N.Flying are giving us a more mature and polished sound. ‘Hot Potato‘ and ‘The Real‘ are great songs, they’re fun and energetic, but ‘How R U Today‘ is a more mature sounding track that allows us to focus on the beautiful vocals that alternate between Seunghyub and Hweseung.
Being able to present a song in such a different genre to the one that we are used to hearing, proves how great this band actually is.
The song is refreshing and refined, the start is gentle and almost fragile it then builds up into more of a rock track that we used to hearing from them. The rap components flow effortlessly into the track and are not harsh or distracting in anyway.
The video that accompanies the track is visually stunning with lots of natural scenery that fits with the fresh and vibrant feel of the song.

In a recent interview the band described their concept for this comeback as ‘sentimental’ and ‘sexy’. They’ve nailed the sentimental concept and while I’m not completely sold on the ‘sexy’ concept, it still works with lots of broody imagery.
