  1. Highway to Heaven
  2. Superhuman
  3. Fool
  4. Jet Lag
  5. Paper Plane
  6. Outro: We Are 127

A New Style

After listening to the album in its entirety, we can’t help but feel surprised- this is not the NCT that we are used to. The songs have a very different vibe. We are used to NCT as bad boys in songs such as “Boss” and “Stop Baby Don’t Stop”, but here we’ve been pleasantly surprised with a more relaxed, and cute repertoire. Click here to listen to “Fool” to get an idea of what we’re talking about.

‘Superhuman’

‘Superhuman’ is spearheading the album and is in the spotlight with its own music video.

Visuals

‘Superhuman’ is a throwback to the 90’s. We can’t help but feel Star treck, Star wars and Spy kids echoing throughout the video.

The costumes are appropriately out of this world as the idols dance, defying gravity. Nods to space suits and moonwalks are scattered throughout, and we can’t help but smile- it feels new yet familiar, new and vintage all at once.

We especially like the close attention to detail, the bubbles floating upwards as well as the subtle and not so subtle silver accents.  AI and lasers paired with familiar ‘robot’ moves completes the song’s feel.

All we can do is nod and say bang on.  Well done.

Stray Kids LIVE! Our first Kpop Concert

Stray-Kids-3

Stray Kids came to America! And we were thrilled to have gotten tickets to the May 16 2019 Performance in Newark (Stray Kids USA Tour 2019: Will You Be There?)

The show was immediately sold out and the band surprised fans by offering a second show for May 15 2019. This was their first ever consecutive performance and the band was so excited to have so much love and support from STAY.

Since we are out in Canada, Candace and I took the long treck to New York to see the concert- and it was worth every minute of the drive!

To get ourselves ready- we listened to their albums over and over…and over and over and over and over.

And so our Journey to New York Began.

New York City

We took the opportunity to vacation in New York City stopping by to see all the famous sights, sounds and tastes.

NYC style Pizza

After a day on the town, we returned to our hotel, only to discover that Stray Kids had visited Times Square within hours of our own sighting of it early that afternoon!

How we envy those lucky bystanders in the background who don’t even know what they missed! We had been keeping an eye out for Stray Kids all day- even though we only half believed that we could ever spot them- but as it turns out, we should have been looking harder!

When we arrived two hours before the concert- our fellow Kpop fans were already there, getting hyped up.

This was our very first kpop concert, so we didn’t quite know what to expect.

It really felt like home- being around other kpop fans and sharing our excitement!

One cannot describe what it was like the moment Stray Kids came onto the stage- it was- just the most amazing thing!

There was this dissonance between being able to actually physically see and be in the presence of people I’ve only ever seen on youtube. My brain told me it wasn’t possible- that they were on the other side of the world- and yet here they stood- right in front of me! Living, breathing, dancing , singing STRAY KIDS!

The screams were unbelievable- and while I never thought I would become a crazy fangirl and start tearing up my vocal chords- but I did, I just couldn’t help it.

The concert was the most phenomenal experience EVER, was worth every penny- and we are already planning our next concert…

To those doubters out there- ITS WORTH IT JUST GO at least once.
