As COVID-19 cases surge in South Korea, there were comparatively fewer releases in September. However without quantity, there was solid quality. Find out our favourite songs from K-Pop artists of the last month down below!
PURPLE KISS – ZOMBIE
If you are looking for a song which makes you glued to the screen and hit that replay button it is this one for sure. The colorful MV with some freaky scenes makes a good combo, add in the catchy melody and lyrics and you are hooked! We are adding this song to our Halloween playlist and off we are to learn some choreo moves as well.
MONSTA X – ONE DAY
This song provided us with emotional lyrics about getting through a heartbreak which was just that right thing we needed to push us through the rainy Autumn days. The song is in English, targeting overseas audience and hinting on the upcoming English album of the group.
E’LAST – DARK DREAM
Just making the cutoff returning at the end of September, the barely 1-year old boy group E’LAST made a comeback worthy of great praise. Taking on classical instruments, ‘DARK DREAM’ sounds dramatic and unique when looking the current trends of hip hop and trap beats used by many groups nowadays. Its theatrical feel also reflects in the performance with the boys using red ribbons to tie each other, creating an elegant and impactful choreography. It is nice to see even young groups willing to experiment and mould their own sound, which although may be a risky decision business wise, when pulled off perfectly like this, really pays in attention. If you haven’t checked this out, you best do!
LEE HI – SAVIOR FEAT. B.I
Although LEE HI doesn’t make frequent comebacks, every time she does, she knows how to deliver. Giving us a soft modern tune, all listeners can focus on the singer’s one of a kind vocal tone. It is not a bombastic song, and it never was made to be, but this relaxed, slightly jazzy instrumental works wonders with her dry vocals. A bonus is the featuring by B.I. Working together from her YG Entertainment 2019 single, ‘No One’, it’s cool that even though both have left the company that they came out with a brilliant sequel. B.I‘s raps are minimal but he does contrast well with the female vocalist to create a memorable, if not pleasant jam.
