POW will not be debuting for an additional month, however they’re following a current Ok-pop development by pre-releasing a observe to familiarize audiences with their model. This tactic might muddy the waters a bit, nevertheless it seems like a great way to announce your self with comparatively low threat and begin constructing a fan base earlier than that all-important debut.
I don’t know a lot about POW, however I’m amazed by how shortly the emotional rock sound of Favourite has turn out to be an enormous Ok-pop touchstone. I assume we will partially credit score TXT for that? To my ear, a music like this performs in the identical sandbox as different rookie teams like BOYNEXTDOOR. It’s excessive on sonic angst, emotive vocals and singalong melodies. Favourite is nowhere close to the top of this sound, nevertheless it’s an attention-grabbing style of the place POW might go sooner or later.
I just like the grittiness of this instrumental, whilst I lengthy for a extra dynamic set of melodies. The refrain has a sing-song high quality that compliments the vitality Favourite is attempting to specific, however my favourite idol rock songs are usually extra cathartic than this. I’m lacking a way of climax and launch, although which will arrive with the eventual title observe.
