Music Assessment: Tempest – Dragon

Rate this post

Tempest - DragonTempest’s Can’t Cease Shining shortly grew into one in every of my favourite songs of the 12 months, and after attending to know the group higher I’m satisfied this recent, poppy sound is an ideal match for his or her power. However, Ok-pop companies are obsessive about showcasing versatility over constructing a cohesive discography, and the fellows have already stumbled into their first drastic idea change. Sure, it’s true. Regardless of their promise, Tempest have stopped shining and began shouting.

To placate us Shiners, the group pre-released a music video for opening monitor Style The Feeling on TikTok (no phrase on when/if it should come to YouTube). That music is nothing particular, however I’ll be clutching it with a vice grip as a result of Dragon (飛上) needs to be my greatest disappointment of the 12 months. The truth is, I’m going to must faux it doesn’t exist. In any other case, it taints the discography of an artist I actually like.

To be clear, I feel Tempest are tremendous gifted. They’ve a few of my favourite vocals of this 12 months’s rookies. However, Dragon is an terrible 4th-gen shout-fest with disagreeable manufacturing and a downright ugly hook that’s instantaneous headache materials. It stands out like a sore thumb alongside their different music. And on prime of all that, it’s completely spinoff — the most recent in a protracted line of NCT wannabes. The music’s solely oasis arrives throughout the pre-chorus and bridge, the place the group’s vocals shine and the instrumental removes its most cloying parts. Even so, Dragon is a battle to get via. It’s even worse than I imagined. Yuehua Leisure, don’t do that once more.
