B1A4 – Beautiful Target

But just when you think it’s all fun and games, Sandeul opens his mouth. And keeps opening it – man damn near dislocates his jaw like a snake.

B1A4 – What’s Happening?

Wildly boppy hyper-pop with a hippy trippy MV that makes you wonder whether the whole art department were hallucinating – anything that opens with songwriter Jinyoung’s apparently disembodied head singing in a box trips my weird-o-meter. The song’s just a … Continue reading

B1A4 – 10 Times

This is like the perfect video of the perfect holiday. The MV was released on 23rd April 2021, to celebrate the 10-year anniversary since their debut. Production is sensibly subtle – a good strong beat to keep the rhythm but … Continue reading

CNU/Sandeul – Oblique Line

This is a ‘smoky jazz club at 3:00 am’ sort of song, haunting and beautiful. Written by CNU (pronounced Shin-woo), who gave it to Sandeul for his solo album when he asked nicely (see what politeness gets you, kids?). CNU … Continue reading

B1A4 – Water Drop

This has to be the most chill zombie apocalypse in history. The song, written by Sandeul the leek-beater (not a euphemism), is a mellow tune, about being a drop of dew in the mountains. The original video finds the boys … Continue reading
