ARIAZ (아리아즈) – Moonlight Aria: MV Review

As part of helping underrated groups, we will feature Ariaz in their song Moonlight Aria.

As what a reviewer pointed out, the timing for the group was perfect. This was due to lack of girl group performances for October, giving them the chance to stand out for a month. But with the agency being inactive for several years, how would it ensure that ARIAZ will stand out among the rest? Let’s see in this review:

Review as whole

The way how the music video is presented – from outfits to settings – reminds me of IZ*ONE’s Violeta or Lovelyz’s Beautiful Days.

I appreciated the song at the first 39 seconds. They started from echoing sounds, then proceeded to tweaking EDM. This is something new for me. Sparkling percussions can be heard at the first chorus, and at the seconds leading to end of music. The music is quite flat, but it’s okay. It’s rare for any group to handle consistency just like this one.

On visuals, their interaction with the plants and flowers is a bit fascinating. Meanwhile, Dawon shares similar appearance with AOA’s Jimin.

Gleaning from the MV itself, they are describing how they are interacting with the nature, using it as their background. The video starts and ends with them featuring a leaf with a simulated dewdrop. This setting represents them as a group reflecting sunshine even if they are only a rookie group.

For a bit of info, Aria possibly stems from Italian word for “air.” From this point, we might wonder what kind of air they will show to us in their next projects.

As what the author emphasized in previous reviews, they have to provide even a bit of description. This is written in Korean on their page, making it difficult to understand.

Review by others

TheBiasList wrote that Ariaz combines the best in both LOONA and Cosmic Girls, and uses “glitch hop,” which is something new. While Moonlight Aria was not outstanding, somehow it tells us what more they could show to us in the future.

Final Notes

Considering how Star Empire handled 9Muses and ZE:A, Ariaz stands greater chance of failure in the future. This is despite the group being under sub-label of the said agency. We’ll discuss this as we rate agencies at year-end, and they have to prove this statement wrong.

As one commenter puts his response on this:

Guffaws in 9Muses and ZE:A

ATEEZ (에이티즈) – Wonderland: MV Review

We are now on our second review of ATEEZ, this time in their newest release called Wonderland.

So far, they provided four comebacks for 2019, which is a great move (Say My Name, Wave, Illusion, Wonderland). After reviewing their double lead track this summer, they are now embarking on another comeback. I’m pretty sure this approach will guide them in what they want in the future. Let’s start!

Review as whole

Music was on heavy beats and synthetic beatdrops, especially on the chorus. On vocals, it’s surprising that Mingi’s voice was quite hidden in the song, and only apparent in the chorus.

The upbeat was exciting on the first verse, then slows down on second verse. Afterwards it cliffhangs before chorus, then proceeds to heavy drops. It regains upon raps, proceeds to slower beats afterwards, then goes beating again on second chorus.

The music video features old lamp and the three members locked in an elevator, harking back to old times (0:24 – 0:26), and also 1:16 – 1:18 on band. The stairs represent desire for growth and ascendancy. The door being opened represents light that is being opened to them as they journey. Finally, a member being chained up and elevator represents struggle and liberation.

An interpretation can be drawn from these things:

If we struggle to be free, willing to grow, and seize opportunities available, we can attain the Wonderland we want to be.

The staircases featured at 0:52 and at 1:05 – 1:07 shares inspiration from GOT7’s Eclipse.

Review by others

KPopReviewed deems Wonderland as a return to their usual stronger past, and exceeding it. By “suspense-building,” they managed to maintain a lot of energy. Outstanding aspects were on the rappers and vocals. Also added to that were the camera shots, which illustrated the fierceness and intense nature of the song.

TheBiasList noted that Ateez having a steady stream of music bears sense of focus. While they might copy stronger concepts from other groups, they manage to pull something that is theirs. Particular instance was on music, where they used every instrumental as if it’s their last. Best parts were on their pre-chorus and lifting-up of disappointing parts. As a whole, the blogger liked it very much.
