“My name is Lemony Snicket and it is my duty to tell you their tale. No one knows the precise cause of the Baudelaire fire, but just like that, the Baudelaire children became the Baudelaire orphans.” -A Series of Unfortunate Events (2004)
this is a female duo debut that I was pretty sure I didn’t care about, but some of the stuff said about them was intriguing, and so I checked it out…
The video, featuring a cheating Ahn Jae-Hyung (aka Cheon Song-Yi’s lil bro) is a bit like a Vogue shoot come to life—equal parts creepy, psychologically dark, and about wearing clothes most people can’t work.
And their voices are really, really good, I think. If they’re aiming at being a new Davichi, I am so ready to have a girl duo that actually works for me. 15& is too pure JYP sugar, Davichi is too Korean ballad, but this song has a pop melancholy to it and sensible English, and it works for me.
Especially since the music video and song are actually intertwined.
UGH, guys, super tragic feeling about this. Because Wondercon this weekend, so obviously I won’t be catching Rio in theaters for the clip. But also Saturday is Lady Joker with Savvy at Wondercon….so I can’t see the panel either. Because I am like, 99.9% certain that having Savvy for that is a total no-go. So many tragic feelings.
All of you who are also going have to tell me everything because I am super sad.
