JUST B, A Pink, BOL4, YOUNITE, DRIPPIN + more – Asian Junkie
Honestly, a lot of boring mainstream stuff aside from one exception, and a couple of solid indie releases I thought deserved some run.
Kind Of Poison – “Behind The Lie”
Pretty simplistic and doesn’t shift gears much, which gets kinda meh on repeat, but pretty nice for a workout playlist.
Kim Bo Na – “Don’t Go”
Not that one, this one. It’s not like mind-blowing or anything, but it has a nice bounce to it and she has a great voice.
A Pink – “I Want You To Be Happy”
I swear to god Naeun leaving better not cause them to release one emo-ass fan song every year.
BOL4 – “Seoul”
She went solo and hasn’t released an interesting song yet.
YOUNITE – “1 Of 9”
The kind of safe debut release that allows fans who already liked them to continue doing so but is almost offensively non-descript.
Kim Sung Kyu – “Savior”
Much better than the typical ballad because the instrumental actually tries to do something, but it just doesn’t have the peak that the best ones do.
DRIPPIN – “SO GOOD”
Generic and annoying at the same time, somehow.
JUST B – “RELOAD”
While this sounds like a typical fourth generation boy group release at times, I honestly enjoy the chorus? It’s melodic and catchy, pleasant even. Of course, there’s a lot of typical tryhard vibes that surround it but the chorus is enough to make it enjoyable for me.
