SM has always been a reliable entertainment agency when it comes to awesome k-pop, but for some reason I've never been able to get fully on board with f(x), one of their successful girl groups. Luckily, after hearing such excitement in the build-up to its release, I decided to check out their newest album and it's amazing. When scanning the credits list, I noticed a lot of Scandinavian names. It’s so funny to me when two of my favorite musical regions combine forces, but SM uses quite a few Scandinavian songwriters with their roster of artists. This definitely explains why so many of the melodies on the album have that sugar sheen to them. Dracula
is the standout to me, with a beat that would make Michael Jackson proud. That hook is EVERYTHING. It’s a massive, theatrical wall of aggressive dance beats and cheesy sound effects. I’m in love, and it'll be even better come Halloween-time.
