BRAVE GIRLS -- HIGH HEELS


Tracklist:

1. High Heels
2. Help Me
3. Whatever
4. Seeing the End of the Road
5. Deepened



Brave Girls are back, kicking up their 'High Heels' with their third mini-album. They had a comeback in February, after a two and a half year hiatus. Since the hiatus they've added five new members, alongside original members Hyeran and Yoojin. This album contains the earlier tune, as well as four fresh ones. This EP is the first album in more than four years and the first with the new line-up.

We leap right in with "High Heels." The title track is high energy, high fun. The nice thing is they have enough girls to give the chorus some punch. I like this, and I don't enjoy it less on repeated listens. It's super catchy, and just gives you a good feeling when you listen to it.



One song in particular that I like is "Seeing the End of the Road." It's soft pop, but that's not notable in and of itself. What is happens to be the chorus. Minyoung kills it here, and I love what she does with her voice. The whole package is very soothing.

"Deepened" is probably the best song on the album. This is despite it being a previous release. It's got that dance floor swagger that I love, and the chorus is just golden. When Hyeran comes in with her raps, that's when this gets seriously lit. She seems to have that nailed, and spits her words in machine gun fashion. It has an epic feel to it, even if the lyrics are downbeat.

The other songs are pretty good tunes, even if they don't pop as much as the ones I covered. Overall it's a good comeback album, and there are some playful touches that keep it from being just another girl band. Welcome back, Brave Girls -- the wait was more than worth it.

MV REVIEW



Okay, I have to say this is the cutest MV I've seen in awhile. Not only were there pretty girls but also girls in fun situations (in a bunny suit at children's party or as a baseball player swinging at high heels). They definitely took the song literally with so many high heels available at once, but at least they made it fun.

And it was for fun. I don't there was much you could take seriously, even if you were crushing hard on any of these lovely ladies, it would be hard not to laugh. They were hamming it up for the cameras, and no amount of barely there outfits can change that.



The dancing was okay, but it was pretty obvious the focus wasn't their slick dance moves -- there weren't any. Likewise, while most of the wardrobe was what you'd find during Halloween (like 'sexy nurse'), at least the kids' party scenes had respectable clothes.

All in all, massively enjoyable, and definitely one for the summer.

I was so happy with this album that I decided to buy it right away. Glad I didn't stop waiting for Brave Girls to come back.

There is not a single song I do not like on this mini! They need to get more attention this was a solid album!

The MV is so cute and the album is lit

This is a solid mini. The two title tracks are catchy on their own, but I'm loving the b-sides too. It's been on replay for me for the last week or so.

THEIR SONG "WHATEVER" SAVED KPOP

I really like this comeback, it is nice that they finally had their comeback! Hyeran is really talented, my bias in this group! Btw could you do also do an album review for Astro's Summer Vibes??

Variable Monday, July 4, 2016

Wow 8.7! I really like Deepened and High Heels surprised me so I'll have to listen to the rest!

IGOTBUDDIES Monday, July 4, 2016

I'm not a bias of this group, but i really-really like their new song. I think people aren't paying attention to it cuz brave girls aren't a trending group. if they were SNSD/Miss A/Gfriend, Twice/EXID/Sistar etc i bet people would be flipping over this song.. I'm a fan of most groups mentioned, but i've learned to NOT be biased of a good song.

The End
