Are you Monday’s gray and gloomy?
Let’s get some color going!
So, What exactly is “Kpop Monday”? It will be that day of the week, where I put my Kpop playlist on shuffle, get one song and introduce it to you guys! Remember, some songs might be party, sad, happy, chill, new, old and yeah you know all of that~
the 22nd song to go is…
Like Ooh-Ahh by TWICE
Ah I look forward for this song to get stuck in all of your heads until the next Kpop Monday!
Twice is a newly debuted girl-group and Like Ooh-Ahh is actually their debut song!
So let’s talk about this incredibly catchy song.
I actually got interested, right from the first second; there’s a flute! It’s a small detail that is really obvious in the beginning and the end, but the flute sound was so different, it makes the song incredibly unique. Something else that stands out a lot to me is the style changes, the instrumental takes you on a crazy ride and gives you a taste of many different kind of styles… but in a really nice and catchy way.
Shout out to the bridge because the beat is heavy and cool.
Vocally, I’m really impressed.
I love the way they sing the verses, it’s incredibly charming and makes the verses stand out and be as rememberable as the rest of the song.
These girls are young (I had to look it up) and there moments in the song where they sound like experienced singers, like their voices are well developed, but then there are moments where they sound extremely young… and I guess cute.
For example the group singing right before the choruses… sound so young and inexperienced.
But then again, the experienced vocals come back for example in the bridge build up.
I like to think that they actually have developed voices, but to not lose the newly debuted girl group feel they go back and forth in their singing technics.
Overall this is a incredibly catchy song, it does stand out, specially if you compare it to other newly debuted girl group’s debut song.
I like that they have the typical newly debuted cutesy style, but I enjoy the more mature sound we get to hear a little hear and there.
I do think Twice have a lot of potential, and I will be looking forward to their future releases.
Do you think this song will be stuck in your head?
