A tour de force within the K-Pop industry, SM Entertainment’s powerhouse girl group Girls’ Generation (a.k.a. SNSD) are back to bring the heat in honor of their tenth anniversary!
Their 6th full-length album, titled ‘Holiday Night,’ celebrates the girls’ legacy and impact within the Korean pop scene and features ten tracks that’ll surely please any fan old or new.
Disco dance club vibes are redolent with the two promoted title tracks ‘Holiday’ and ‘All Night’ and as usual, Girls’ Generation put on a one of a kind performance from start to finish.
The first single ‘Holiday’ is a brassy, disco-funk track that blends perfectly inflected guitar licks with harmonious vocals.
Taeyeon, Tiffany, Seohyun, YoonA, Yuri, Sunny, Hyoyeon, Tiffany, and Sooyoung are decked to the nines in retro-inspired ensembles ranging from ‘60s gogo dresses to ‘80s New Wave aesthetics thanks to the crisp, structured shirts and bright hues.
Cinematography-wise, ‘Holiday’ uses lush filters that give the video a vintage flair that works well within the various sets and props utilized in the studio.
‘All Night’ is SNSD’s second promo track and is an ‘80s funk-pop song reminiscent of Australian songstress Kylie Minogue’s early discography thanks to the subdued synthesizers and chiptune-like bloops interspersed.
Despite being a dance-friendly track the music video is a heartwarming, introspective, and poignant look on each member’s perspectives on their careers and just what Girls’ Generation means to their very being.
Clips of their past performances plus individual interviews intermingled with behind the scenes footage of the ‘All Night’ video shoot, showing a glimpse of each member’s personality through an intimate view.
Fans old and new will take delight at the fact that the despite the trials and obstacles, SNSD still hold the title as being one of K-Pop’s most formidable girl group acts.
‘Holiday Night’ is available for download and streaming via Apple iTunes and Spotify.
