'NewJeans' self titled EP debut is probably one of the most innovative k-pop projects of all time, not only musically but aesthetically. With four tracks that pour out everything we need to know about this new rookie girlgroup, the project flows in the most natural way possible; Chill productions mixed with futuristic pop tendencies such as UK Bass, Hyperpop, Contemporary R&B and others, makes it all so delicious to hear.

Preliminary Thoughts

Solid production, good vocals, some decent hooks, just a generally strong debut EP from a group showing a lot of promise!

There's certainly room for refinement with tracks like Cookie, but the overall quality is still good and this group has the potential to see a lot of success based on how catchy and groovy this is!
