Music Evaluate: Infinite – Flower

Infinite - FlowerA couple of month in the past, we received phrase of an Infinite comeback. It was obscure, however that mixture of phrases will at all times get my coronary heart racing. Because the weeks went on, it turned clear that this launch can be a “tune for the followers” anniversary single and never a full, promoted title observe. I can’t say I’m shocked, however expectations undoubtedly dulled as extra info got here out.

Flower reunites the group with composer BLSSD — one half of the duo Rphabet who produced classics like Again and Unhealthy. The stakes are decidedly low right here, as they often are for this type of tune. This nice, sentimental mid-tempo provides us ample area to understand Infinite’s vocals, and that’s at all times a deal with. Nevertheless, there’s nothing concerning the tune that will make me select it over some other observe within the group’s discography. It feels extra like a placeholder than a spotlight — a problem I’ve had with most of their music since their long-awaited return final 12 months.

Flower is at its finest when wafting alongside wispy strings and upbeat percussion. Its refrain has an optimistic drive that jogs my memory of a much less bombastic Start Once more from their 2018 album. The melodies are fantastic, however pale compared to the magic they had been in a position to forge with Sweetune. Greater than something, the tune echoes my concern that the group are merely going by way of the musical motions somewhat than pushing ahead with a brand new, thrilling arc of their profession. I ought to in all probability be glad about something they wish to present us, however as a super-fan I can’t assist however be additional crucial and need the best possible for them.
