On March 31st, rookie boy group T1419 released their first comeback MV to ‘Exit’. The track comes off from the 2nd single album, ‘Before Sunrise : Part 2’. Assumingly, this single continues on from nonet’s debut single album ‘Before Sunrise : Part 1’ which was dropped only three months ago in January. Check out the new music video down below!
The lyrics to the hip hop track describe the troubles found in school such as bullying along with the annoyed and defeated emotions the bullied feel towards their oppressors. Wanting to find simple happiness, they wish to run away from this hell and search for the exit. A flat bass permeates throughout the majority of the song’s instrumental to plainly put the message at the forefront and makes for an easy following head bopping of a tune. Assisting, the subdued complexity allows the longer rap verses by various members to shine through with different intensities of timbres and rapping speeds. A pounding dance break before the bridge increases its power before reverting back for its final refrain to close.
Examining the music video, we see the members hanging out in areas around a school. The class room set features overwhelming overhead cameras recording everyone’s movements, representing the view of a restrictive nature of school. A chalked blackboard with trashed chairs and desks piled into the corners and graffiti sprayed without care on the walls creates the impression of a post-violence scene after school. Finally we also see the boys confident in the locker room, dressed to play baseball, finding their true selves. Elsewhere, shots of the choreography in these settings show the group’s hip swagger charms as they smash through the routine to the beat with hardened expressions.
Debuting in January, this quick comeback album includes the instrumental version of ‘Exit’ but also the MLD Entertainment group’s pre-debut 2020 track, ‘Dracula’. Garnering 3.7 million views within the first 24 hours, this return marks their highest views in any video they have released so far, reaching new audiences and gaining more fans in the process.
