“Spring” is an R&B mid-tempo ballad that’s reminiscent of her hit songs such as “You & I” and “Don’t Cry”. The song isn’t flavored with a lot of musical zest, but it doesn’t remove an ounce of the soul and rawness engraved in every verse of the song. Dara’s delicate tone in a mixed style of vocal and rap adds another layer of a nice hook in the middle part. Overall, the song has its dose of an addictive tune that may not be prescribed for everybody, especially if you’re searching a different kind of flavor in the album. Perhaps, the other songs may satisfy you.
내연인 (My Lover)
Compared to “Spring”, “My Lover” is a song rich with piano lines and other delightful tunes that cohesively work altogether. The track has a nicely made build-up towards the chorus that gives an eargasmic and classic song outburst. It’s also beautiful to hear that Bom gives a singing flair accentuated by her falsetto that’s not often heard. Apart from being a notable contender as the title track, “My Lover” is a song that will make you love every second of it.
The last track walks between the line of spring and summer vibe. “Shameful” has an influence of pop and EDM that’s a traditional combination used to create a catchy song. It gives the listener a shift from heart seizing tunes to cheerful melodies that are suitable on days that you just want to dance around. This kind of song is something you’ll never get tired of playing over and over again.
It’s safe to say that the album is well-made, and none of the songs are worthy of a skip. As Bom’s career continues to flourish, it’s exciting to see what other kinds of songs she’ll release or genres she’ll tap in the coming months. One thing is sure, we all can’t wait for a new song to drop soon!
