April is making a double comeback with “Mayday” and “Lovesick”. April is one of those girl groups that I love but pay very little attention to. Well hopefully these two songs will change that and make me pay more attention to this very talented girl group.
I was a bit distracted by the sound of the song, but I'll get into that in a second. The music video for “Mayday” was really unique. From what I understand, it was 6 separate ordinary Korean girls going about their normal lives but at the end of the day dancing and jamming to music. I think this song or at least the video is about how music ties us together as a society.
Now, about the song. It was a fine song. I actually liked it because of the dissonance that was present in the verses, but the thing that bothered me was the fact that the instrumentation was almost louder than the vocals. That's a rock element, not a pop one. Pop music is supposed to present the vocals upfront. The vocals in this track seemed drowned out by the backing track though.
“Lovesick” was a very simple dance performance video that fit more into their original style. The girls were at a tennis court dancing on the court with tennis balls scattered out in front of them. The dance was cute and simple enough.
The song was more along the lines of what I expected when opening these videos. It was calmer and had an electronic orchestral backing track that is familiar to Gfriend, Lovelyz and April. While the song wasn't rather exciting, I almost preferred this track to the previous one because the mixing was done a lot better on this track although it still wasn't perfect. I enjoyed it overall.
