Yesterday AKMU returned with their 3rd single titled “HAPPENING”, and I am so excited!!! It is time to enjoy some beautiful sibling harmonies.
(Please note – this is a real-time review, meaning I am typing down my exact thoughts while listening to this song.)
Reaction to Official MV:
- I love the guitar entry combined with their harmonious vocal runs.
- Chanhyuk’s voice deserves more recognition. I can hear significant growth with each comeback.
- Suhyun looks beautiful as always. Her solo release – “ALIEN”, is the perfect quirky dance anthem.
- Chanhyuk is rocking the mullet. His voice keeps catching off guard because it’s so rich and captivating.
- The music video set is intriguing, especially the lighting for the darker scenes + the transitions.
- “Happening” is a soft rock song, which is right up my alley. So I’m enjoying it a lot.
- The transitions between scenes are so smooth.
- Wow, the synthesized guitar for the bridge is such a sweet touch. Awesome production.
- AKMU’s harmonies are always the highlight of their songs for me, and they never fail to deliver.
- I also love that each new song sounds very different from the previous release. Chanhyuk is killing the songwriting & production game.
- “HAPPENING” is a vibe, and I loved every second of it. I am so happy that AKMU is back, and I can’t wait to get more music from them.
- On that note, this song gets a 10/10 from me.
