i’m too old to be this into kpop’s top 10

bobae onoff

Repetitive motifs and building sound give this indie song by bobae a hypnotic quality that perfect captures the way it feels to be in the haze of your own thoughts, half present through your days.


baekyun get you alone

Let’s pretend for a minute that Baekhyun of EXO would ever have trouble getting somebody alone–the funky old school undertones and seductive vocals of this track would definitely do the trick.


golden child burn it

Powerful vocals and passionate rap combine to give Golden Child‘s title track a triumphant quality that makes it possible to believe you really can leave the past behind.


jeong sewoon in the dark

Jeong Sewoon‘s silky voice combines with the moving bass to paint the picture of walking through the city at night, but we’ve been listening to it all day long.


MCND Crush

Does this song stay stuck in our heads all day? Yes, girl. Do we love that they say oh my gosh? Yes, girl. Are we completely crushing on MCND‘s Crush? YES, GIRL.


epik high acceptance speech

A low profile beats provides just the right backdrop about this track from EPIK HIGH that grapples with the effects of isolation voluntarily and involuntarily in the age of quarantine.


dreamcatcher odd eye

DreamCatcher has always known how to rock but Odd Eye channels their fierce energy in a way we haven’t heard before, one that drives home a powerful message about separating truth from fantasy.


(G)I-DLE dahlia

Haunting vocals have this track off of (G)I-DLE‘s i burn unfolding like a flower, and then Soyeon‘s rap kicks in and conveys the determination one feels when determined to hold onto a relationship in the face of criticism.


Hoppipolla – the love

Samples of news footage, I’ll and Hyunsang‘s gorgeous voices, Youngso‘s virtuoso finger-style guitar playing and the soaring sounds of Jinho‘s cello create layers as complex and moving as love itself.


youha – abittipsy

We’ve been getting drunk on Youha‘s 80s pop meets vaporwave masterpiece all month long. Too many people are sleeping on this song–don’t be one of them!
