On October 8th, RSVP Entertainment’s boy group ONLYONEOF dropped the music video for their newest comeback, ‘libidO’. The track comes off their 3rd mini album, ‘Instinct Part: 1’. The album’s naming signifies a start of a new era for the group with their concept and creativity. Check out the MV down below!
The artful title track describes the suppression of emotions such as libido. As a topic infrequently discussed in public, a person’s mind fills with the want for more as those thoughts overwhelm the subconscious mind. Listening carefully, the group states the deep guitar bass featured busting the chorus represents the heavy beating heart of an individual. Elsewhere, the sensual sound of echoes and harmonies, mixed with a surprisingly rough distorted rap verse in the bridge encompass the mysterious and almost dangerous tune.
Examining the music video, it makes for a juxtaposition to the considerably harder hitting track. With a suggestion of a Boys Love theme, there are soft focus effects on the boys as they wander around a forest and lodge, the fantastical visuals shine through giving the video a sense of something peculiar. The innocent t-shirt and shorts combo contrasts with the black and white filtered suits to show either side of feelings towards the subject matter. Watching the expressive choreography, it will likely have everyone talking. The sexy routine is done cunningly and specifically as if it feels like an instinct.
Their latest art pop EP contains 8 new tracks, 4 of which are CD exclusive. Its sixth track in the listing, ‘byredO’, takes the opposite side of its title track. The group puts it that love, whilst being pleasant, can also be cruel; that a scent can smell wonderful but when oversprayed becomes toxic.
Throughout 2020, the sextet released two single albums that collaborated with various popular producers such as GRAY and Groovyroom. In an effort to expand their musical artistry, the albums saw considerable increases in their sales and popularity, with their previous single album, ‘produced by [ ] part 2’ beating their personal record selling over 30,000 copies and reaching #8 on the Gaon Album Chart. With a new mini album and even more tracks, we can only watch to see this group continue to exceed expectations with their creative concepts.
ONLYONEOF’s 3rd mini album, ‘Instinct Part.1’, featuring the title track, ‘libidO’ is available now. How do you feel about the group’s new concept and music video? Let us know in the comments below!
