Tune Evaluation: Wonho – Don’t Remorse

Rate this post

Wonho - Don't RegretAgain in August, Wonho warned us to not hesitate. Now, we’re being informed to not remorse. Actually, I’m into these self-help pointers so long as the music is sweet. And to date, Wonho’s singles run has been tremendous constant. Highlights like Open Thoughts, Lose and Loopy forged him as a dependable purveyor of polished dance pop. This appears to be the realm the place he thrives most, making the alt-rock flip of recent single Don’t Remorse a possible landmine.

When writing about Wonho’s music, I’ve typically talked about how his vocal tone lacks additional grit or energy that may elevate his materials. Nice manufacturing has been a boon to his work, however on a slower observe like Don’t Remorse I crave a extra textured efficiency that meets the angst of the guitar. To be truthful, I’m undecided Wonho is that sort of performer. That doesn’t imply he’s not proficient or bold. All of us have our area of interest, and the truth that he co-writes most of his materials means he’s in all probability effectively conscious of his strengths and the way to leverage them. His vocals are satisfying, particularly when stacked for the cathartic refrain. However quite than the slinky beats we’ve turn into accustomed to, Don’t Remorse takes a extra leaden method.

Sentiment is the star right here, funneled throughout a rock-infused instrumental that offers method to a rousing chorus. The music has anthemic heft, however by no means grows above a boring roar. It wants louder guitars, extra resonant percussion and a vocal association that swings for the rafters. The melody is nice and efficient, however it’s wrapped in a package deal that feels overly cautious.
