Woodz – “Love Me Harder”
This MV is fascinating — it’s the duality of Fight Club layered over a seductive dance club beat. To me, it feels like summer after a long day of work.
Pentagon – “Basquiat”
I never thought I would apply the words “raw” and “powerful” to a Pentagon song, but these boys have stepped up in a major way for Road to Kingdom. Road to Kingdom has been an AMAZING vehicle for strong performances, and I am HERE for it.
Stray Kids – “Blueprint”
I will always love a good Stray Kids summer bop. Nothing will top “Get Cool”, but “Blueprint” makes my heart happy.
Verivery – “Thunder”
I absolutely LOVE how this song captures the dark and unsettled atmosphere right before a thunderstorm. It’s heavy AND delightful and I could listen to it over and over again. OH WAIT. I DID. Check it out!
Zico – “Summer Hate” (feat. Rain)
Zico is an everlovin’ delight. His summer hate anthem speaks to me (ten years spent living in Arizona cured me of loving summer FOREVER), but I will make fun of him for wearing a FREAKIN’ SWEATSHIRT in the summer and complaining about the heat. Nevertheless, this MV with Rain is SO MUCH FUN!
BONUS TRACK: Purple Rain – “Waking Up”
I loved Purple Rain’s “The King Must Die”, so watching “Waking Up” was a must. It’s easy to imagine listening to this song while laying on the beach and looking up at the stars.
