Solar x Kassy – A Song From The Past: Music Review

IT IS FINALLY FRIDAY๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿผ, I AM FREE. I HAVE BEEN SO BUSY THIS WEEK๐Ÿ˜ช๐Ÿ˜ช.

I have a lot to catch up on. I have to complete music and drama reviews, variety show discussions/recaps and a winter playlist. Hopefully, I can get everything done by Sunday. To begin the marathon, let’s check out Solar and Kassy’s latest collaboration. The teaser poster for their new song caught my attention, so I made a note to check it out once I have enough time. I already know Solar from Mamamoo, but I do not know much about Kassy.

I did a little research on her and here is what I found – Kim So Yeon, known by the stage name Kassy is a South Korean singer and rapper. She debuted in 2015 and in 2016, she participated in the hip hop survival reality show – Unpretty Rapstar 3. So far, she has released two extended plays and a good number of singles. She is currently managed by Nextar Entertainment.

Okay, on January 16th, Solar x Kassy released a digital single titled “A song from the past”

(Note – this is a real-time review, meaning I am typing down my exact thoughts while listening to this song.)

Reaction to Live Version Video:

  • I already love the melody.
  • Kassy has a beautiful voice, and I know that Solar is going to sound great.
  • They are both stunning ladies, and I love this hair colour on Solar.
  • Wait, I just got chills. The subtle instrumental switch-up and Kassy’s breathy notes during their entry to the chorus section is so good.
  • The chorus section is my favourite part of this song.
  • Yes, to the heavenly harmonies.
  • Lol Solar cannot be serious for too long, I guess.
  • Love her happy vibes even when singing an emotional ballad.
  • Oooo, more harmonies.๐Ÿ’“๐Ÿ’“
  • I need to check out more of Kassy’s songs because her voice keeps on giving me goosebumps.
  • The high notes in this song are not too climactic, but they are very efficient and stable.
  • Wait a minute… Did they just subtly modulate on me? I was not expecting a modulation at this point, and it was done so quickly.
  • I am enjoying this song.
  • Yes… Solar come in with those chilling high notes.
  • Also, the way she smoothly switches back into her lower register is impressive.
  • Awwww, they ended in harmony… SO BEAUTIFUL.
  • I said it. Solar cannot hold back her happy vibes.
  • Immediately they stopped singing, she started laughing. I can’t deal.๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
  • I am going to have a second listen before giving my rating.
  • Although I do not have the English translation now, this song gives me some sense of peace.
  • I could see myself listening to just the instrumental of this track because it has a very soothing and lovely melody.
  • WOW. Solar and Kassy effortlessly nailed every second of this track.
  • I checked out the English translation, and the lyrics are so comforting.
  • I also watched their actual live performance on Yu Huiyeol’s Sketchbook:
  • Their voices go so well together.
  • I am in love, this is for sure, going on my playlist.
  • So my rating for “A song from the past” by Solar x Kassy is 10/10.
