It is an thrilling time for GOT7. Not solely has Jackson scored an enormous hit with “100 Methods,” however now they have a spring comeback as effectively. ‘Dye’ is technically a six-track mini-album, nevertheless, the CD model has a handful of solo and unit tracks by JB, Youngjae, and the remainder of the crew.
“AURA” is the primary observe, and it is acquired a distinctly R&B vibe. The synth washes on this track make the track a bit of totally different than the norm for this sort of tune. It is fairly catchy and fairly danceable. “CRAZY” can also be R&B (shock, shock), however is a really totally different beast than the primary observe. As an alternative of synth stabs, it is acquired sluggish, sustained notes. And sounds much more traditional than the fashionable R&B on “AURA.” I just like the bluesy intro to “NOT BY THE MOON.” After that, it turns right into a extra suspenseful observe. There is a seductive urgency to the vocals, in addition to a pounding backing observe and it is right here we uncover the lyrics that specify not solely this track, however the title of the album as effectively. That is positively the form of track that might find yourself on a Halloween playlist.
“LOVE YOU BETTER” may be described as romantic comfortable pop. it is efficient due to the falsetto as a part of the backing vocals and contributes to the general softness of the piece. Positively GOT7 stans will likely be throughout this. With “TRUST MY LOVE” we get into membership bangers. It is acquired a few of the identical suspense as “NOT BY THE MOON,” nevertheless it’s nonetheless totally different. And the pre-chorus is someway even higher than the refrain. “POISON” begins out with whistles earlier than transitioning right into a membership banger. That is the heaviest observe on right here, with exaggerated vocals and a hip-hop vibe. Frankly, that is my favourite observe on right here.
The opposite songs are CD solely, which I haven’t got entry to. However that does not imply I am not acquainted with them. And also you most likely are too. They have been stay mainstays for some time now.
So what do I feel? I feel it appears like a GOT7 album. Their character comes by way of within the type and the vocals, I admire the truth that there are not less than a pair membership bangers for folks like me who’re into the quicker songs. Actually, this assortment of songs has one thing for everybody, whether or not you are into R&B, membership bangers, and even comfortable pop. And if you happen to’re a fan, get this one. It is traditional GOT7.
On this baroque MV, the boys are clad variously in black or white, relying on the scene. At first, we’re launched to the band, wearing white, dancing in a resort foyer. Not less than, that is what it seems like, with the lights, marble statues, and wide-open house.
It is not lengthy earlier than we get to the darker sequence. And the scene adjustments. Jackson is sitting on a throne, a crown adorning his head. On one aspect, there are black-clad folks reaching for him, on the opposite aspect, bare-chested folks. Most likely his topics.
And there are scenes the place they dance in black. These costumes seem extra elaborate than the white ones we see at first. The choreo appears higher throughout the darkish sequences. I am undecided what’s up with that.
They swap these out with particular person pictures. And there are different issues as effectively, such because the boys in black robes and masks, gathered round a raised pedestal, on which a small, ornate bottle rests. There’s a couple of scene of a band member laying on a coffin.
The tip is form of cool, the place the units behind them crumble whereas they’re dancing. I am unable to make heads or tails of this, nevertheless it definitely appears darkish. With cultists, hints of dying, and perhaps even a vampire king. If I believed the track ought to go on a Halloween playlist, perhaps the MV ought to be required viewing that night time as effectively.
