    This song is honestly jarring as heck. When I first heard it I'm like wtf is this? It reminds me of Natalia Kills. It's definitely a grower. Anyways if you don't know already, this is Bling Bling and they debuted on November 17th 2020 with G.B.B. La La La is their b-side track.

    The only group that ever does songs this experimental is NCT. Even RV isn't on this level and they have some experimental bops (reference Zimzalabim) :sweatr:

    Natalia Kills? So she hasn't faded completely into obscurity?

    That b*tch had some bops, shame about her messy personality and killing her own career. I still got problem on my playlist.

    This sounds like a weak Brazilian funk.
    I hated it. If they want in they should go all in with the sound

    In my opinion, it's actually a pretty good song! It initially sounds like shit because it's almost as if the brain can't comprehend it.

    She really did have good music. LaLaLa reminds me of her song Controversy in a way? Which is pretty ironic lol.

    Kudos to them for trying something different. The more (variety), the merrier.

    Just to set the record straight though, I think it’s mostly 127 that has the “jarring” music. All my faves are there but I personally like their songs the least out of all the other nct groups lol. Like, when I think of

    Dream, their music exudes a cool and youthful vibe and is kinda easy listening.

    At the most, something edgier like


    For WayV, their songs seem to be a mix of exo and classic boybands.



    And the U concepts are a mix but other than make a wish being slightly “noise”-ish, it seems like an eclectic mix. (Maybe a person who’s more knowledgeable can find a common trend, but to me they’re all different).

    i like chunks of the song, the chorus and the second part of the verse (if we can call it a verse tbh). i think if they removed the pre chorus percussion and eased out on the ear piercing cymbals, the song would have been pretty good.

    but yeah NCT's experimental music is more purposeful organized chaos.

    this is just chaos for the sake of chaos.

    I don't mind it, but I grew up playing some modern classical music...which is waaaaay out there at times.

    As @Multi_Smile notes, Loona is also a good group for experimental sounds, particularly in their b-sides. Bling Bling stands out for investing an MV though.

    The Classical Musicians React channel is pretty good about looking at the more "interesting" k-pop and nerding out on it. I think this is probably a good candidate for them.

    I sort of hope these groups do well to evolve the paths that k-pop can take.

    I may like their main song better.

    Their label seem to have spent some money on both their videos.

    I still can't believe how all their predebut stuff sounds better than everything they're releasing now... :angryr:

    Also OP that track was jarring as heck. I need to go cleanse my ears with Yerin Baek's new album.
