Music Assessment: aespa – Lengthy Chat (#♥)

aespa - Long ChatYesterday’s Supernova was a incredible return for aespa and hopes are excessive that their upcoming title monitor Armageddon might be even higher. Between these two behemoths, the group has unveiled a shock music video for album b-side Lengthy Chat (#♥). You actually should see this video to consider it. If my overview centered on the visible component of Okay-pop, I’d have lots to say about our new buddy Corn-On-The-Cob oppa.

Alas, I have to give attention to the music alone. Lengthy Chat is a mid-album b-side, so expectations should be set accordingly. Even so, the monitor performs very very similar to filler. Its mid-tempo bounce is amiable and light-weight, however underpins a track that doesn’t have all that a lot occurring. I’m extra intrigued by the synth textures, which inject a welcome ruggedness to the in any other case sugary candy tone. The gurgling electronics that body verse one are notably addictive and make me want the monitor would have pushed additional down this experimental lane.

As an alternative, Lengthy Chat delivers a catchy sing-along — straightforward and breezy and only a bit childlike in execution. I’m unsure if the ultimate album model might be longer than the video edit, however at simply over two minutes this Lengthy Chat is kind of brief — extra like an gratifying interlude than full-on album stunner.
