check out our 10 favorite kpop songs released this week
A laid-back beat provides the perfect backdrop for Bobby‘s rap skill to shine and to capture the live-for-today spirit of the lyrics.
Expert production gives this track from Colde‘s new album enough complexity to keep you engaged while his vocals put you in a groovy kind of place.
What does cool sound like? Mix together a funky bass, Y and Joochan‘s powerhouse main vocals, Jangjun’s & Tag‘s mad rap skills and the combined voices of Golcha with those nananas and you have your answer.
The blend of the DreamCatchers’ vocals and passages of heavy distortion evoke the bittersweetness of reliving distant memories in this song that shows these girls do soft and poignant as well as they rock.
Yozoh‘s acoustic guitar and delicate voice take me to a place of calm where I’m ready to accept the lyrics’ invitation to take a break and enjoy the little things in life. This single track marks her first release in four years and was well worth the wait.
Colde‘s beautiful voice gave me frisson within the first few seconds of my initial listen and hasn’t stopped. While you could make a case for every song on idealism to be a contender for a place on this list, this track to me is the museum-worthy masterpiece.
Heartfelt lyrics and IU‘s gorgeous voice make this song the perfect audio pick-me-up for those days when nothing seems right and show why she continues to be a queen of kpop.
Appropriately named–this track is fire. It’s easily the best idol boy group song of the month, and its boldness reminds us that hope is strength. I’ve lost track of how many times I’ve streamed this song but I’m still not at a point where I don’t tear up when Joochan belts out “you’re gonna be fine” in the first chorus. Maybe I never will be.
DreamCatcher seems to come back better and better each time, and with this song they’ve achieved perfection. Seamlessly, it switches from eerie and haunting to straight up bad ass rock, showcasing everything that makes these girls unlike anything else in kpop.
There’s a chance you haven’t heard this song from indie band We Are the Night yet, and I suggest you take steps to correct that immediately. This electronic pop rock single is dreamy, original and just the right thing to have flowing through your earbuds when you’re winding down for the night.
That wraps up our picks for the week. You can hear them all on our Spotify playlist. After you listen, drop me a comment and let me know what your favorite new song of the week is.
