Summer vibes come along in ‘BAHAMA‘, this single is super sweet and cheerful, it definitely feels like a lighter version of ‘Better Things’, but with an even dreamier vibe to it and a lot of charm.

This album take a more experimental pop turn in ‘Long Chat (#♥)‘, the energy, melody and flawless ad-libs are fantastic, as it predecessor this single moves on the lighter and sweeter side of aespa’s music but keeps their vocal power.

Rhythmic synth open up ‘Prologue‘ and develops into a pop single with a great vocal flow and lyrics that are pure comfort for the listeners. ‘Live My Life‘ adds the pop-punk twist to this album with amazing instrumental and solid singing.

We reach the end of this album with ‘Melody‘, the piano instrumentals and soft core in this single are stunning to listen song, with a very delicate tone to it and a lot of soul. The perfect end for this album.
