SPICA is back with their new music video “Ghost” and it is everything I wanted from them. In my opinion there are just some groups in Korean music that have a niche and they just own it every time they release some new music. For me SPICA is one of those groups, don’t get me wrong I like their faster stuff like “I Did It” but ballads are their real “bread and butter.” So when I saw the their teaser for “Ghost” I was so excited In case you missed them you can check the first one here and the second one here. But I knew they were going to have to go big and bring their “A” game, due to the fact there has been so many ballads already this season and many of them are pretty good.
The concept is a fashion show just as it was shown in the earlier teaser, but there is a story line or two that you follow through the music video. I don’t want to go into it to much detail because I want you the viewers to watch the music video for yourself and tell me what you think. Make sure you pay attention during the music video because all is not what it appears.
As for the song it is top notch, the vocals are excellent. But it what one can expect from this group. They really do have some of the best voices in K-Pop hands down and this song show cases that fact beautifully. The song is about how it feels when you reach that point in at the end of a relationship and you are just done here is just a sample:
“Are my tears funny.”
“Do you think my feelings are easy.“
“Yea yea, one , two, three.“
“Be gone before I open my eyes.”
I felt so bad for the poor girls in the music video. so much so that if we were friends in real life I would bring them a collection of movies and a couple of pints of ice cream. It really is that kind of emotional journey. The rap section by Juhyun , I just kept waiting for her to breakdown and cry. Her tone and meter matched the emotion of the song, and I appreciate it. Often in K-Pop, the rap section feels forced or like they just stuck in into the middle of the song just so they could have a rap section. So when it matches the song as well as it does here, I think it should be noted.
