On August 23rd, popular girl group BRAVE GIRLS returned with the title track MV for ‘After ‘We Ride”. The song comes off the quartet’s identically named 5th mini album repackage. The album contains a total of four tracks including this title. The three other tracks, ‘Chi Mat Ba Ram’, ‘FEVER’ and ‘Summer By Myself’ were all featured in the act’s previous resurgent June comeback album, ‘Summer Queen’. However within this album, the trio tunes have been given the remix treatment with acoustic and piano versions for the respective tracks.
The lyrics of ‘After ‘We Ride” describe the hardships faced with a relationship and complicated feeling felt after a breakup. The track acts as a successor to the publicly loved group’s 2020 single, ‘We Ride’. But rather than return to its City pop roots, this comeback sounds more straight synth pop combined a rock driven melody. The members’ vocals glide over the calming instrumental bringing its cruising energy along.

BRAVE GIRLS ‘AFTER ‘WE RIDE” MV:
The music video opens with member Yujeong exiting her car parked in an empty night carpark. Reflecting sadly, we see all the members dealing with their own issues. From drinking their stresses away, and waiting for their phone ring to hear back from someone, it all seems relatable yet hopeless. The outfits here all show the girls are ready for a retro night in the town despite their struggles. It could be seen in a way that although all looks well on the outside, that everyone has days and parts of their lives where things don’t got the way intended. Events take a hopeful turn as the girls overcome their struggles, deciding to live for themselves instead of others. The MV thus ends with the car windshield reading ‘You are brave’ drawn on with red lipstick.
Sales from the Brave Entertainment group’s aforementioned previous comeback album skyrocketed, selling over 60,000 copies to date due to the shock rise in popularity from the group’s 2017 title track ‘Rollin”. Saved from disbandment, the album’s sales allowed the girls to finally receive their first paycheck and pay back all their debts. With this repackage, although the majority of the songs aren’t complete originals, they have definitely showed their willingness to become an act with consistent and strong releases.
