DAY6 - Congratulations

When I first heard Congratulations, I brushed it off as a pleasant-enough piece of pop/rock, if slightly middle-of-the-road. In fact, I thought the band sounded kind of like the Korean equivalent of 5 Seconds Of Summer (with the addition of a rapper). A few days later, I kept returning to the track. The melody and vocals had thoroughly hooked me. Better yet, I discovered that the accompanying EP was sonically diverse, incorporating elements of rock, pop, hip hop and synth. I'm not sure if Congratulations is my favorite track by the group, but it definitely stands out as the obvious single. Lyrically, we're not talking about a happy "congratulations" situation here. This is a total, bitter break-up song -- though luckily it's much more anthemic than depressing.

(If you decide to buy K-Pop physical album releases -- and my god you should, because they're awesomely presented -- try catchopcd for some of the best prices out there. Use this link to get 5% off your first order!)

This is my favorite track by the group so far. I always request this song to my favorite radio station in my country. :)

I'm surprised at how much I like the album as a whole, though this is definitely the right single choice.
