Yves' single marks a new (get it?) phase in the Loona pre-debut rollout. 'new' is a bombastic soultronica tune that revels in its wall of sound, 80s stylistic tendencies and 'new you, new life' message. The more downtempo 'D-1' is no slouch either, as it showcases Yves' voice even more, as well as her rapping skills. As others have said before me, this is the best pre-debut single so far, and will most likely stay this way.
Update: new's drop is one of the best things that has ever happened to me. Also, I think I've only grown to appreciate Yves' vocals with time. D-1 meanwhile isn't my very favorite B-side, but it's an amazing song and I really love how unique it is looking at their discography as a whole.

Original (87): new is a serious fucking banger, D-1 is a very different vibe but almost, *almost*, just as good. Hands down the best LOONA single release thus far.
This is still unpredictable for me, since I always thought this would be terrible when I first saw the single cover, but honestly? This is my favorite LOOΠΔ solo. Both "new" and "D-1" are really joyful to me, and always catch me off guard.
