~Under the Music Radar~ [LED Apple]

[MV] I accidentally ran into you by LED Apple

In fairness to this ‘idol’ band, I really LOVE all the songs they released. I can say I’m a fan of their music no matter how TYPICAL Kpop it is. Although when it comes to their appearances, charisma & live performances, I’m not THAT amused. ^__^;;

This group met a lot of BAD incidents and accidents earlier into their career. I didn’t keep track of how many times they changed members, but from what I saw in this MV– the two vocalists and the bassists are NEW. ๐Ÿ˜€ They’re kinda cute… in their own way. Haha. The LED Apple that I came to know didn’t have any cute members before. ๐Ÿ˜€

So I stumbled upon them way back when I saw a pic of them over at soompi

I liked how they arranged Baek Jiyoung‘s hit ballad ‘DASH’ and made it sound cool and rock-ish. ๐Ÿ˜€ It was pretty cool. The vocals are NOT that amazing or breath-taking but it’s enough to keep me listening. Their second single “Who do you think you are” met criticisms due to the fact that it sounded like a CNBLUE song… and yeah, it DID… in some ways. But I still LOVED that song. It was catchy and the melody was easy to recall. ^^

Now they’re back with “I accidentally ran into you“. The intro sounded a bit like INFINITE’s DASI DORAWA. Hahaha. But well, well, well, the song is pretty good. I’m glad they didn’t lose their ‘touch’. I first watched the DRAMA VERSION of the MV starring the pretty, doll-like actress Nam Gyuri and I was really touched by the story… T__T Such beautiful tragedy. The guy in the MV was kinda cute, I think he’s the bassist — Kwangyeon. ^__^

Moving on… ๐Ÿ˜€

Probably the only thing that made me say ‘WTF?!’ when I first saw them perform was the fact that they were… DANCING. Yes. As in DANCING with a capital D. -.- They’re supposed to be a band but I dunno… I thought they’re trying to be different or something. Well, I was half-right. Their company, Story Ent., stated:

โ€œLed Apple is unlike any other idol group that reveals their members before their actual debut. The group has been kept highly secretive in order to make sure their success is entirely dependent on their skills. Theyโ€™ll become an idol group that can dance, sing ballad, rock, ballad, and play instruments all at once.โ€

OH… kay. ‘Nuff said. ๐Ÿ˜€ Let them be. As long as they make good music, music I can actually listen to and put onloop in my mp3 player, then so be it. Dance all you want boys. Haha.

Hope to hear more great music from these supposedly ‘idol-rock-bandย > ^__^ <

~Music Radar: Dance to the beat of N.Sonic~

Okay. Since I love music and I just like listening to all sorts of music (well, except jazz and classical XD) I will start this music-recommendation-thingy which I call the “MUSIC RADAR”. I’ll be recommending not just the popular songs and albums…

TO BE FAIR, I’ll tryย to listen to some indie, upcoming, underground artists and groups as well. I promise NOT to focus on KPOP. AND… I solemnly swear that I will give my honest opinion and will not be so biased. Unless… my biases REALLY deserve to be in my MUSIC RADAR. ๐Ÿ˜€

I’ll start off with this Kpop boy group N.Sonic. I just saw their album at KPOP7.com where I usually download the latest KPOP albums… and I thought they’re like a hip-hop duo or trio… I listened to their songs and instantly LOVE all four of them due to the smooth and relaxing melody and groovy beats.

Track 1 – N. Sonic is sort of like a combination of urban, pop and ย hip-hop. It’s my fave track. Track 2 – Super Boy, this one I can dance to. It’s more upbeat and less hip-hop than Track 1 and it kinda reminds me of a Billy Crawford song. They kinda mellowed down with Track 3, something you’d dance to with your special someone in a club, while Track 4 – Never Stop is something that I can bob my head and raise my hands up to. ๐Ÿ˜€

I don’t know anything about this group coz I didn’t Google them AND I’d like to keep it that way. ^^ I dunno but I like them for their music and I have no intention of getting to know them na. ๐Ÿ˜€ Just strictly music.

Check em out~ย
