Catching Up With Recent Comebacks – Part 2

A-Lin – Passenger:img_3366 If you’ve been following my blog since it started, you’ll know that I LOVE A-Lin. “Passenger” was released as a single late last year, but she just dropped the music video yesterday. This is such a beautiful song. She always manages to make me feel the emotions even without any understanding of the song. I love how stripped down this track is. It almost sounds acoustic because the only instruments you can actually hear are the guitar and soft drums. So it gives a lot of space for A-Lin’s voice to soar. I also like the aesthetics of the music video, A-Lin is stunning.

 

TREASURE – Going Crazy (Performance Film):img_3362 This is my first time checking out anything for this newly formed group. I didn’t watch the survival show, and the only member I know is Bang Yedam. I wasn’t expecting their sound to be this pop-ish. Apart from WINNER and AKMU, almost all the artists in YG gravitate towards classic hip hop. I guess they went for this sound because of the age range in the group. Also, this is my first time seeing a YG group with so many members. All the same, I think TREASURE did great. They are young and talented, so even if this song is not my style, I am excited to see what they will bring to the Kpop community.

 

Lee Hae-Ri – from h:img_3076 On the 29th of January, Lee Hae-Ri from Davichi released her second mini-album titled from h. It has six songs with “Just Cry” as its title track. Lee Hae-Ri is the queen of ballads. She has a lovely voice and never fails to convey the right emotions when she sings. With these new set of songs, she showcased a variety of ballad styles. So if you enjoy slow songs, this is for you. My favourite song from this album is “Where the love goes”. I tried to add all the official music videos I could find. 

 

SUPER JUNIOR – 2YA2YAO!:img_3364 I love Super Junior, and this song is a BOP. The beat is so good, and the melody for the chorus is catchy. Plus, all the handsomeness going on in the music video, who could resist? Their voices still remain as good as ever. “2YA2YA0!” is three minutes and thirty seconds long, but I still needed more time. It felt too short for me. I already added it to my playlist because I need more groovy songs to relieve stress.

 

Poetic Narrator EP – Poetic License: img_3079This is a newly formed duo. The members are Juniel and Doko, and this release is their official debut. The EP has five songs. Three tracks have music videos, and the rest can be heard on this album sampler 👇🏼 They have a really soothing sound. I genuinely enjoyed every song on this album, it was like a mix between neo-soul and R&B. Their voices are beautiful. They complement each other really well. I love the lady’s soft tone. I cannot wait to learn more about them. I added the entire EP to my playlist. It was too good, so I couldn’t select a favourite. Here are the music videos –

 

Kim Jae Joong EP – Love song: img_3365 This EP has four songs with “Tender love” as its title track. I can see myself on the balcony of a beach house staring at the ocean while this album plays in the background. Although I know who Kim Jae Joong is, I hardly listen to his songs. So this album is an introduction to his music for me, and I truly enjoyed every minute. He has a powerful and genuine voice. My favourite song from the album is the title track. Here is a sample of the remaining songs –
