I originally wasn't going to review this music video but because I've seen a ton of people hype about this girl group, I decided to give it a listen. I know nothing about Girlkind, but I'm excited for what they have to offer. “Fanci” is their debut song.
Girlkind gives off a retro vibe in their music video for “Fanci”. There are five members in the group. The video was retro not only because of the fashion and style but the black and white aesthetic always pushes it in that direction. I'm not sure what the concept was supposed to be but the visuals were very run down and ruined. The dance was quite good. It looked like a combination of a lot of the dance choreography that have been popular lately but it still felt like a new, fresh take on it. It wasn't too plagiarized.
The song was a bad ass style but strangely enough it had a bit of cuteness thrown in, mixed with the track. It nothing that they are doing with the beat or the flavor of the song, it's more of the way they sing the song or fluctuate their voices. The same style applies to Wa$$up. They have a definite bad ass style but there's a tinge of cuteness in the mix. Like I mentioned earlier, the style of the song is retro hip hop. There was some strange beat patterns in the chorus and honestly, the song almost doesn't sound like Kpop. The quality of this debut isn't as grand as some but it was still good and they used what they could. The only thing I didn't really like was the use of echo vocals in parts of the song. It reminded me of Karaoke echo and that is not a good sound, but I won't judge the entire song based on that one post production studio flaw. The girls were very talented and have the potential to be something big.
