On April 12th, veteran SM Entertainment boy group SHINEE released their follow-up MV for their title track, ‘ATLANTIS’. The track arrives with their repackaged 7th album of the same name. Check out the music video down below!
After years of being in the industry, the group have combated a variety of genres and this funky pop tune goes perfectly into their extensive repertoire. Lyrically, the track likens someone’s love to go as deep as an ocean, willing to travel and go to great lengths, all the way to the lost city of Atlantis to give everything for reciprocation. The guitar and brassy instrumental drive in the background but it’s the group’s signature SM resonant unrestrained vocals and harmonies that carry the song into its own league.
Experiencing the music video, we see them find their way to the fictional land. Going through underwater themed grocery stores and opening blue steel corridors, the video nicely utilizes colors such as teal and red to create the high contrast, almost painted look. The members similarly wear outfits in these colors, however once reaching the final destination, change into a theme of white, blue and purple to match a deep navy surrounds, kilometers under the sea. Eventually, the MV comes to a close as the song ends and the camera pans out back to the grocery store, named Atlantis, on the unassuming street level.
The quartet recently returned after an over two year hiatus due to three of the members enlisting for compulsory military service. With member Taemin being the only that hasn’t served, they dropped their 7th full album, ‘Don’t Call Me’, back in February this year with the identically named title track. Along with the 9 tracks in that release, this repackaged comeback includes 3 new tracks; ‘Atlantis’, ‘Area’, and ‘Days and Years’.
SHINEE’s repackaged 7th album, ‘ATLANTIS’ is available digitally now. The physical copy will arrive starting from April 15th. How do you feel about the group’s swift return and title track? Let us know in the comments below!
