The girls from Weeekly are back with their new mini-album ‘We Play’. I am 100% ready for some new bops, so let’s dive straight in.
We start off with the track ‘Yummy!’. This track feels super groovy with its bouncy bass and brass samples. What a great opening to the mini-album. It’s a hella catchy track that is a shot of serotonin.
‘Lucky’ follows that with Soojin’s vocals opening. There are so many different things happening to this track at once. I had to relisten to it a couple of times just to figure out what was going on. I’m still not sure I get it, but regardless of that, this is a total bop. I thought it’d be more mid-tempo because of the opening, but nope. Ji Yoon wrote the lyrics and helped compose the track.
Next up is the title track ‘After School’ that came accompanied with a brand new music video. Honestly skater girls for the win. The references to their previous title tracks are cute and well integrated in the song. I am in LOVE with that small second of harmonizations. Legit, give me a whole song like that.
We follow that up with ‘Uni’. I don’t think I can unhear ‘It’s like a dumptruck’ but apart from that it is a BOP. It’s a bit softer that ‘After School’ but still has this cheerful energy that I’ve come to associate with Weeekly.
‘Butterfly’ is the last track on the mini-album. JeA from Brown Eyed Girls helped compose this track, which honestly is iconic. This pop-ballad gives them the space to show off their vocal power.
