Right off the bat, IU wastes no time in opening Love Poem and just gets to it. A second in, the first verse has begun. The EP itself is more subdued, laidback and refined even by her standards. The first half is somewhat midtempo, with 'Lullaby' being a quite bluesy soul-pop tune and the hybrid pop-rock/future bass sound of 'Blueming' sandwiching 'The Visitors', which is more restrained in comparison. The second half is on the slower side, but there is enough room for variety. 'Above the Time' ... read more

If someone claims he's a nIcE gUy, he's obviously trying to get into your pants. He's just that good at hiding his intentions. That's the moral I got from 'Nice Guys'. Now on to the review.

Beach Bunny kick off the year with Blame Game, a 4-song EP that knows how to keep it simple, stupid. It's a fun, little piece of 21st century indie pop, with a bit of pop punk and 90s alt-rock thrown in. Well, the music is. The lyrics are a giant middle finger to fuckboys, self-proclaimed 'nice guys' who ... read more

(G)I-dle aren't exactly renowned for their uptempo bangers like your average K-pop group, so it's no surprise the opener for their latest EP is a ballad. If the title is any indication, 'Hann' is a sequel of sorts for their eponymous 2018 single. More downtempo, more melancholic. 'Hwaa' somehow updates the moombahton sound without going all tropical on it, but it's nothing to write home about. It's just an underwhelming title track. 'Moon' is actually quite funky, taking cues from any and every ... read more

What lyrics would you write for your debut single? A ditty about driving down the street that you fucking hate, but you love? That's exactly the approach Olivia Rodrigo takes here. While everyone's talking about how they get blatant Lorde vibes from this one, I actually think this isn't a Lorde type song as much as it is a slight Billie Eilish type song. For all the hype this song was getting, I was expecting a lot more from this one. More power in the music. I guess I was underwhelmed and ... read more

It would be easy to shrug Wasteland off as just another post post-punk album, but I consider it the end of a promising start from a band who could go far. The originality may not be there, but when a debut album grabs your attention from the start and provides some memorable songs here and there, the only thing that matters in the end is flair. Lice has their own flair, and you can notice it here on Wasteland.
