SHINee have released the second part of their ‘Story of Light‘ 10th anniversary trilogy, ‘The Story of Light Ep 2‘ and the title track ‘I Want You‘.
With the release of the first EP and the title track ‘Good Evening’ living up to the hype and expectations of fans, a lot was expected from ‘I Want You‘. We’re happy to say that the group delivered – yet again!
‘I Want You‘ is an energetic, tropical house track, but given that nearly every K-pop release lately is on the ‘tropical’ bandwagon, this song is so much more! SHINee injects the song with their own unique musical feel and style to ensure that it’s not lost in the tropical house trend.
It’s the fresh and vibrant blending of free-flowing synths, plinking beats and the polished, exuberant vocals from the members that sets this song apart. There’s a beautiful piano moment that frames the pre-chorus ‘Oh Na Na‘ which builds into an earworm that will be playing over and over in your head for days.
Their powerful vocals blend together to create a joyous and fun song which is sleek at the same time, and as we heard on ‘Good Evening‘ the vocal layering is a thing of pure beauty.
The song and the accompanying music video both have a fresh, summery vibe to them that sits well with the concept they have adopted.
