ONEUS’s pre-release Unforgettable has been a stealth assault on my playlist. It’s not one among their showier tracks, however its melodic through-line offers it excessive replay worth. That is price noting when writing about new title observe Erase Me. The track has many strengths, however a through-line is just not one among them.
I don’t imply to name Erase Me piecemeal or jarring. Its numerous segments match collectively properly sufficient. However, the fixed shifts in power make the track really feel prefer it’s resetting itself a number of occasions. Simply once you suppose you’re in for a sonic explosion, Erase Me pulls again. It is a very trendy Okay-pop track construction, possible necessitated by the business’s elevated emphasis on dance efficiency. However, it makes a observe like Erase Me really feel a bit halfhearted.
With this stated, many of the track’s particular person items are satisfying on their very own. I like the symphonic stabs throughout the pre-chorus, and the massive EDM drop is enjoyable in a nostalgic method. The vocal efficiency is improbable as all the time, even when Erase Me lacks an appropriate climax or sense of payoff.
It is a little off subject, however given Infinite’s current announcement of a gaggle reunion, I’ve been fascinated by this publish I wrote in 2019 outlining the weather that make songs like The Chaser so efficient. Erase Me may benefit from each level I made again then.
