Today, I've got a couple music videos to review for you guys. This is a quick review and I have a feeling I'm going to have a couple of these because there is a flood of comebacks right around the corner. So for today I'm going to be reviewing "The Closer" by Vixx and "Make It Rain" by Bastarz.
The music video for "The Closer" by Vixx was a bit confusing. I understood that some tragic event happened and the one person was reevaluating the situation, but I'm not 100% sure of what happened. The camerawork was a bit uneasy and too shaky for me but the song and the dance were very good. The song reminded me more of an EXO song than a Vixx song but I still liked it.
Bastarz never fail to impress me. Again with this music video for "Make It Rain" which looked like a cross between "Come Back Home" from 2NE1 and "It G Ma" from Keith Ape. However it seemed like the music video was just about money. The song was hard hitting and aggressive as shit. I really enjoy this style of music from Bastarz. I think it suits them very well.
Thanks for reading through this quick review. I'll keep you guys updated. Please like, comment, and share this post.
Here I am again to do a couple quick reviews on music videos that have come out recently. First up we have Davichi with another music video for "Love Is". Davichi killed it last time with "Beside Me", so I'm excited to see what they have in store for this release. Also, I'll be reviewing "Very Very Very" by I.O.I.
Davichi releases another powerful ballad. This video features Lee Jong Suk from such dramas as Pinocchio and W - Two Worlds. The story in the video is about a boy mourning the death of his father. The entire video you are wondering what he's missing and then the last scene, he lights a cigarette and puts it in a vase next to his father's picture. It was a very touching video and song. The song was powerful as expected.
"Very Very Very" by I.O.I was very very very addictive. The song was an upbeat song with a fast tempo and high synth energy. It reminded me of something that Lovelyz would do. The music video was something in between a Red Velvet, Oh My Girl (Liar Liar), and Orange Caramel video. However, this didn't detract from the song because the song was still awesome and super poppy.
It has been over a month since I did a Quick Review, so I decided to make my October 12th edition of Quick Review featuring Davichi and Ladies Code. I'm not super familiar with either group. I do know that Davichi is a ballad duo and that Ladies Code was originally 5 members but 2 of the members died due to a car crash. The 2 members names were EunB and RiSe. Forever EunB. Forever RiSe.
Oh my heck! "Beside Me" by Davichi was incredibly powerful. I felt myself longing for that person to be beside me. The music video was essentially the two girls searching and longing for their lover to come home and be beside them. The search was unsuccessful, I'm assuming, due to the fact that the music video ends with a girl carrying a lantern in the dark, still searching. Not only was the music video phenomenal, but the song took my breath away. This is by far the most emotional and powerfully driven song Davichi has put out to date. Incredible.
"The Rain" by Ladies Code was a chill song with a ton of symbolism within the music video such as falling marbles, fish out of water, and umbrellas. However, I'm not going to get into that. The music video was weird enough but caught my attention throughout the entire thing. There was enough uniqueness while still having its figurative feet on the ground. The song wasn't my favorite song they've put out. "Chaconne" is a great tune. Check it out. But this song really didn't impress me. It was just meh.
Thanks for reading through this. Thank you for the support. Thank you for putting up with my shit. Please like, comment, and share this post.
My Quick Reviews are conglomerates of music video reviews. For instance, if there are several releases in a single day that are all related or somewhat related, I will do a Quick Review segment.
