LOONA – PTT (Paint The Town) + WOW
The group is complete once again, HaSeul is back, after two years! An eternity in this business. I like the track, but damn, Digipedi outdone themselves here: the MV is stunning, the girls are shining, and I hope they’ll get some WINS in charts & music shows with this one. HaSeul, HeeJin, HyunJin, YeoJin, ViVi, Kim Lip, JinSoul, Choerry, Yves, Chuu, GoWon and Olivia Hye deserve MOAR!
C/C of the YT description after the videos. A LOT of information in it.
LOONA became one after going through the round of faith, coincidence, and destiny.
LOONA has shown the effect of plus plus so far, gaining courage with the butterfly effect and finding their inner self. What’s more, is that LOONA created a bigger wave of change with their passion to make a world where not even a single girl is oppressed.
[&] album is about why LOONA had no choice but to break the fixed rules and become one with all LOOΠΔs around the world, after making bigger waves of change.
LOONA holds a variety of symbolic objects that symbolize their dignity. Among those, the symbolic color has a significant connection with the message that LOONA wishes to convey through this album.
“And all LOOΠΔs are one”, all LOONAs in the world paint the world with their own colors and conveys the message that they will shout out “Paint The Town” in one voice after they found their own colors.
Finally conquering the LOONAversewith their own strengths, LOONA then discovers a bigger world that they have never known about.
The intro ‘&’ holds a story about you, me, and us together (&) becoming one after breaking the fixed, conventional symbols.
The title track ‘PTT (Paint The Town)’ is a hip-hop dance genre with the most intense and explosive energy of LOONA that they have released so far.
‘PTT (Paint The Town)’ combines all the essential elements from chart-topping Bollywood songs, with a massive Indian drums and tablas combined with aggressive dubstep and 808 bass sounds, a hypnotic Indian flute playing the signature melody of the song and a massive chorus. The minimalist verses and building prechorus parts all lead to haunting chorus parts with a melody line you will never get out of your head.
This title track aims to establish and redefine themselves after breaking the rules without being trapped in taboos or being wary of others to “Paint The Town” in LOONA’s colors.
‘WOW’ is a song with a bouncy, up-tempo and infectious beat. LOONA celebrates with the world all the women out there and encourages every girl to be strong and confident through this empowering song.
‘Be Honest’ is a refreshing song with an upbeat tempo, telling you to be confident about your feelings and be honest just like the name of the song.
‘Dance On My Own’ is an emotional but high-paced energetic song that mixes the organic strums of affected acoustic guitar with hip hop drums. This song will both make you feel things as much as it will make you want to dance.
‘Different Night’ is a story of the girls who spend different nights at the same time. It’s an emotional ballad song with a signature melody of a dreamy and sentimental pad and pluck sound.
The last track ‘U R’ is a Lofi R&B song with a sentimental piano and gentle electric guitar combined with LOONA’s voice. It’s about expressing love to the loved one who approached you like a heart-warming star and shined upon you.
After being one, a hero comes into the world by LOONA.
