Tune Overview: Kwon Eunbi – Underwater

Rate this post

Kwon Eunbi - UnderwaterSay what you’ll about Woollim Leisure’s dicey promotion, however their crew positive is aware of their approach round an excellent tune. The company’s output this 12 months has ranged from ‘excellent’ to ‘glorious,’ with a refreshing unbiased streak that doesn’t at all times kowtow to tendencies. Soloist Kwon Eunbi appeared to seek out her area of interest with this spring’s Glitch – an icy dance observe that reveled in its personal artificiality. New single Underwater feels hotter in tone and texture, however no much less beguiling.

Proper from the beginning, Underwater teases its huge refrain. A catchy (vaguely acquainted?) synthline launches the instrumental and drives each verse and pre-chorus. It modulates barely because the tune goes on, however the melodic roadmap is evident throughout. This has the potential to develop into overly repetitive, and I fear about that in the long term. However, the counter melodies within the verses are robust sufficient to compete. And, when the refrain ultimately comes round, the manufacturing is given a lift that helps it stand out.

Underwater is the sort of observe that makes a big effect the primary time by means of. You’ll be buzzing the melody after one hear. Once more, I believe this may be to the tune’s detriment in the long term. It’s not what I’d name melodically numerous. However, Eunbi’s efficiency goes a great distance in promoting the depth of that hook. And when Underwater veers towards home piano for its bridge, we get a peek on the various sonic texture she’s able to exploring.
