IU is back with another song. This one “Through the Night” was released just about a day ago, so I'll try to get this uploaded in a reasonable time. IU is a beautiful musician that definitely deserves more recognition, especially from myself. “Through the Night” will be my starting point to get to know this beautiful and talented artist.
The music video was really pleasant. It had a very old timey feel probably due to the fact that the music video had many relics of the past in it such as old tape recorders, ink-dipped pens, and letters to loved ones. The whole video was IU being bored, probably waiting for a letter from her loved one. At the end of the video, we see her writing a letter and sending it off. She stands at the window with lightning bugs filling up the tree outside. The entire atmosphere of the video reminded me of the Korean film The Classic when the main girl and guy are writing letters to each other.
As for the song, it also had an old sound to it. The entire song used a guitar and her voice which is a beautiful, raw expression of sound by IU. The slow finger picked style of the guitar playing was reminiscent of classic music and almost sounded traditional in presence. IU has a uniquely rough, but gentle voice that penetrates the track and takes shelter in the listeners' head. This is one of the things I love most about IU. She is soft and gentle, but powerful in more ways than people tend to think. She is overlooked because she's not a powerhouse vocalist, but she definitely deserves much more attention. Plus, I mean, she's cute.
