[Review] Woo!ah! – JOY

The girls from woo!ah! are back with their first mini-album ‘JOY’. Let’s take a closer look to discover more about this release.


We start off with the title track ‘Danger’. We’re falling in love with the track ‘Danger’. It’s a fun, dance track that has some serious chutzpah to it. I really dig this. The beat is crazy and goes hard. The transitions are great and everyone has a chance to shine.

Next up is the track ‘Joyride’. We’re going synth pop with this one. It’s fun, playful and has some really cool brass in the backing track. The rap verse has some crazy samples in the background as well. This track is really well done and well put together. I dig it.

‘Go Away’ feels quite like an ‘American summer track’. It’s an enjoyable listen, with a good beat and nice synths and samples. The vocals are great and I’d really enjoy listening to a stripped version of this.

Next up

After that we get ‘Switch Up’. The vibe feels quite diabolical since it switches up (get it?) so much. It’s really cool and is also catchy to boot. The rap verses have a killer beat whereas the chorus has a more cutesy theme to it.

‘Straight Up’ has a wholesome theme. This is how it is described in the album description: ” the song tells you to raise your head up proudly and cheer up because you will always be by your side and be your strength, even if you are tired, hard, and difficult. A song with a message.” The instrumentals with the drums fit the message and the chanting enhances that feeling.

The closing track is the pre-released ‘Catch The Stars‘ which we wrote about here.

Overall, ‘JOY’ by woo!ah! is a really good mini-album that houses a variety of genres while still feeling like a coherent work. There are some really good B-sides on the mini that will no doubt be loved by fans and casual listeners alike.
