On March 8th, Brand New Music’s trio BDC (Boys Da Capo) returned with their 2nd mini album, ‘The Intersection: Discovery’ along with the MV for their accompanying title track, ‘Moon Rider’. Check it out down below!
Following their 2020 EP, ‘The Intersection: Belief’, this marks the group’s continuation in their ‘Intersection’ album series. The title track features a deep guitar bass introduction that pulsates throughout the song to give the song a sophisticated pop soundscape. Combined with minimal but dramatic strings in the chorus, they pump the track to a pleasant high to its listening end. Its lyrics compare the feelings of young passionate love to running into the darkness together, with the group representing the moon rider to lead people down into the unknown. If you liked their previous title track, ‘Shoot The Moon’ (coincidentally also utilizing the motif of a moon), ‘Moon Rider’ will surely ride right into your alley.
Beginning with the song’s choreography formation (which is the ending pose of the group’s previous ‘Shot The Moon’ routine), the MV shows the members in a white and black aesthetic. Adorning an assortment of crisp white shirts, with shiny black jackets, the overall look is futuristic yet clean. The smooth dance routine complete with backup dancers in the dark outdoors make sure of the group’s performing abilities and reaffirm the slight sci-fi feel the concept conveys. Story wise, we see the trio in separate scenes before white flashes interrupt their dark sets, leading the boys to convene together and chase after, what we know by the end of the video, to be a white light shining out of a box on a building’s rooftop.
Debuting in October 2019, all three members participated in Mnet’s idol survival show, ‘Produce X 101’. However with none of the members ending up in the final lineup for that year (now disbanded boy group X1), the trio together debuted with their single album, ‘Boys Da Capo’, selling over 11,000 copies of the album. Their follow-up, 1 year later with the aforementioned EP, ‘The Intersection: Belief’ improved in sales selling over 14,000 records. It seems with this comeback, the group has continued and found their sound within the K-Pop industry and we hope this album will have continuing commercial success.
‘The Intersection: Discovery’, alongside the title track, ‘Moon Rider’ features six tracks and is available now on all major music platforms. How do you feel about BDC’s comeback? Let us know in the comments below!
