NCT 127 came out with a new mini album “We Are Super Human” on May 24 2019.
The album is comprised of six tracks:
- Highway to Heaven
- Jet Lag
- Paper Plane
- 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’ is spearheading the album and is in the spotlight with its own music video.
‘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.
Enter Candace and your brilliant musical knowledge
