ARTLOVER Releases Video for Her Debut Single “Want U Back”

Standing enchantingly in a field of flowers wearing a hot pink suit and black gloves, platinum-haired ARTLOVER could be ready for a Vogue photo shoot. But in actuality, she’s fiercely pioneering her debut MV. The track, “Want U Back”, is the first single from her EP to be released later this year, and a great sample of what is to come from this London-based artist.

It’s about time more female k-rappers take center stage, and ARTLOVER is blazing through with a fresh take. Rather than the aggressive beats that can be heard often in the female rap space (think Hyuna and Jessi), “Want U Back” provides a lighter, 80’s synth-pop sound – just perfect for a spring jam. With a hook brimful in melody, ARTLOVER’s pleasant vocals are showcased; but where she really shines is in the rap verses, where her deep register expertly brings everything together.

Furthermore, the atmosphere of the MV fits the song perfectly, with an overall brooding theme with shots of the countryside.

This electric single has us excited to hear more from ARTLOVER. Keep an ear out for her forthcoming EP, and watch the aesthetically captivating MV for “Want U Back” below!

SUNRISE consists of all Every Day6 monthly releases from this year, including new songs “I Smile” and “오늘은 내게”. The album also includes a rebooted version of “Letting Go” and the final version of “Congratulations”.


Album Review

  1. 오늘은 내게

오늘은 내게 starts off with their signature sharp guitar riff found in their harder rock music selection. The songs envelopes into parts of a tranquilizing echo before picking up again. Notably, the drummer of DAY6, Dowoon, happens to sing a bit for the first time in the song as well.

2. I Smile

The track is a bit more unique than their previous tracks. In this track, Sungjin finally sings a verse, changing up the arrangement; the synthesizer was definitely more powerful to about have its own solo. Remarkably, the vocals unified in a way that will stir one’s heart. The colors of DAY6 have surely shown even brighter through their evolving music.

3. Man in a Movie

Have you ever imagined one of those old flicks with the sweet slow dances? My first impression of this delightful song was that it ought to be featured in an old film, particularly in the scene where couples slow dance at the high school dance and the band is going all out to lighten the mood. This song surely has another spin in the type of music DAY6 can do.

4. I Wait

My reaction, along with many fans, was that this song has strong enough power to be featured as an anime intro! Nevertheless, DAY6 gives a pleasing rise to the feelings building in the song “I Wait”, pulsing with bursts of energy.

5. How Can I Say

Another head-banger song! The track starts off with rising vocals, all members harmonizing to hit the high notes together. It’s a pleasant sound to hear! Some of the things that noticeably stood out to me were the keen guitar riffs and smooth transitions between each member’s parts. The abrupt finish at the end totally wrapped up the euphoria of the song.

6. Letting Go (Rebooted Ver.)

Letting Go” was the title track of their past album Daydream. I was quite curious about how different “Letting Go” would sound in this new album. My curiosity was piqued when hearing the album spoiler earlier today. With a quicker start and more raw to the vocals, the rebooted version was quite satisfying to hear. The additive cool beats set as a transition was a different take along with a new snippet of delicate ad-libs.

7. I Would

Such a calm song; it’s serene and and quite peaceful upon listening to it. A blissful sound that could lead you on the brink of tears—at least for me!

8. Goodbye Winter

Released as part of the first single Every DAY6 January, the song says a beautiful goodbye to the cool season of winter. The track has such a chilling and mellow sound, that I was swept away by the season.

9. I’m Serious

Contrary to the previous track, DAY6 showcases a lighthearted sound and shines with such vibrancy. This is definitely a fun song to listen to while on a road trip. Although upbeat, they express the desire to be paid attention to because their feelings are “serious”.

10. Say Wow

What an uplifting song! They made me “say wow” upon first listen. Full of high spirits, you can’t help but join in their bursting energy!

11. DANCE DANCE

This song marks as one of the first songs that Dowoon has a vocal part in. Starting with his count, the band takes you in for a ride as they invite to dance with them. The lovely melody that’s perfect for the summer vibes.

12. My Day

A lot of fans and I could easily recognize the potential this song has a title track. It’s like a wonderful voyage that DAY6 takes you on, calling you “my day”. The beginning was certainly a nice start, reminding me of a wintry aura when they released it in Every DAY6 February.

13. You Were Beautiful

As we’re nearing the close of the album, we come across the melancholic song “You Were Beautiful”. The song picked up from the story in their debut track “Congratulations”, reminiscing both happy and sad memories. DAY6 reminds us that they have come to a closure since “Congratulations”, now coming to terms with the past.

14. Congratulations (Final Ver.)

The closure of their 1st full album SUNRISE. Since the departure of Junhyeok, the band experimented with different ways of fulfilling his part in “Congratulations“. Almost a year and a half later, the final version of “Congratulations”, their debut song, is released on SUNRISE. The song is extraordinary just as before; I can’t deny the bittersweet feeling I felt listening to this multiple times. Even then, DAY6 has started “letting go” and is ready to start anew—and we’re ready for that as well.


 

The stage has become grand and beautifully lit up for DAY6. You can tell in their music how much they’ve evolved and grown—from weekly buskings to full house concerts, they’ve truly paved their own path to success and recognition. We can’t wait what it’s in store for them in their next monthly releases for their year long project Every Day6.
