[Review] TWICE – BETWEEN 1&2

The girls from TWICE are back with their new EP ‘BETWEEN 1&2’. Let’s dive right in because ever since the teaser pictures, I’ve been dying to hear this new release.


We start off with the title track ‘Talk That Talk’. This is such a delightful 90s pop track. It’s so much fun to listen to and I thoroughly enjoyed the vocal bounces and differences in pitches. It’s going to be a total ear worm and will undoubtedly be loved by audiences.

After that comes the track ‘Queen of Hearts’. This is a love letter to ONCE. I absolutely adore this pop-punk version of TWICE. Their vocals were insane and I loved the electric guitar shredding in the back. The beat in the chorus is DOPE.

‘Basics’ starts with a beautiful harmonization. This is a track for cool girls. Chaeyoung wrote the lyrics for this one. The pre-chorus begs you to sing along to. It’s so much fun and I love the confidence. We get the harmonizations back in the bridge and it’s awesome.

Next up is ‘Trouble’. Jihyo wrote and co-composed the track. I love the rap verses, the high pitch and the fact that it is a total and utter BOP.

Next up

‘Brave’ brings us back to the 80s with its delightful synthpop. The layering is super dope. Also okay vocal belting!! The vocals are next level and I’m in love!

The following track is ‘Gone’ and just WOW. Dahyun wrote the lyrics. Ella Eyre is listed as a co-composer. This has got to be one of my favorite tracks on the album. The instrumentation is insane and the rap verses are really well done. The energy completely sweeps you off your feet!

The closing track is ‘When We Were Kids’. This gave me a total emotional whiplash from the previous number. The mid-tempo ballad was written by Dahyun as well. She’s a queen of duality. I adore the softness of this track. The message is bound to make you emotional.

Overall ‘BETWEEN 1&2’ by TWICE is a fantastic mini-album that brings back the magic of TWICE.
