I haven’t featured a assessment of Genic’s music since again in April 2020 when the group debuted with the superior Solar Comes Up. However over the previous few months, I’ve revisited their discography and develop into a little bit of a Genic fanatic. I like a co-ed group, and these self-producing superstars have the chops to again up their polished music. Like company seniors AAA, Genic are a “dance and vocal” group moderately than idol performers. Every member seems like a most important vocal and most important dancer. The expertise runs deep.
Talking of expertise, new single Taste consists by members Joe and Ryuki — even when its NCT-esque “noise music” parts don’t play to their strengths. These two have a present for melody and their work is at its greatest when it absolutely embraces this. However, Taste is a roadmap for making this quote-unquote ‘noise music’ thrilling by fusing it to a superb refrain and swoops of big main key vitality.
If you happen to’ve heard any male Ok-pop observe of the previous few years, the opening moments of Taste will really feel acquainted. On this case, the shouty schtick is pulled off effectively because of an genuinely fascinating palette of results. Ditto for the pre-chorus, which maintains curiosity by injecting some cool electro distortion. I’m much less enthused by the selection to repeat this intro rather than a second refrain, however that’s solely as a result of…
…The refrain is so good! Significantly, I’ve had this hook lodged in my mind because it was first teased per week in the past. That’s the signal of a permanent centerpiece, and I want we might get a tune organized solely on this type. The members are unbelievable vocalists and it’s so satisfying to listen to them seize maintain of a sturdy melody and ship it with aplomb (I’m taking a look at you, Ryuki). Because it stands, Taste is extra scattershot than many of the group’s perfect work. However, I’m intrigued by its musical mash-up and the panache with which it’s pulled off.
