Artist: Ga In
Album: “Talk About S”
Label: LOEN Entertainment
Let me get started on how awesome iTunes radio is. If it weren’t for iTunes, I would be very behind on the world of KPop and miss potential great songs and artists. That’s how I came across Ga In of Brown Eyed Girls. If it weren’t for iTunes, I would have never discovered her individual work as an artist. What caught my ears was the song “Bloom”. That’s when I decided to buy the entire EP to see if the other songs are any good.
Obviously, I’m going to start with “Bloom” as it’s the lead single. I love the song as it has that Disco pop mixed with general pop and electropop. The song itself just has that fun positive feeling that makes for a fun listen with replay value. Songs like “Catch Me If You Can” and “Tiredness” also share that upbeat sentiment which makes this album much more than a one track wonder.
“The Gaze” was also an underrated song with her having a downtempo R&B track. What made the song was the use of a sample of the American hip-hop artist, Common.
Usually, for EPs that I absolutely love, the only bad parts is that it’s way too short. In this case, I feel the same way. I wish there were ways where she made more songs like the upbeat ones. Maybe, she’ll have more one day, or it could have just been a one time concept.
I liked this album more than anything the Brown Eyed Girls ever did. To some people, she’s the lead female in a PSY music video. To people like me, she wowed me with a single that made me have to check out her music.
Overall rating: 3.5/5
