ZE:A recently made their comeback with Ghost Of The Wind after successful promotions of their subunit groups. Ghost Of The Wind was released on the 9th of August and was the comeback to realize that I have typed their name wrong all along. So my question is: why are they named ZE:A and Children of the Empire? The name doesn’t really make sense. Sorry. Always a question which I never got the answer to.
I find the song quite boring. I never was a fan of the band, but I do like the song, but I find it quite boring to listen to. There is nothing amazing about the song. It seems like they kept the same note and tone throughout the song. They were singing at a very high pitch, but it seems they did not go any lower or higher. The instrumental was like a 10 second track,, on repeat. There was nothing to make the song that interesting. It was basically the same thing over and over again. The rap was okay, but it did not fit the feel of the song like what I had expected it to be. It is much better than their previous songs and i like the more serious side of the band, but they could work or choose a more different song that let them add their own style to the song.
The music video is quite dark. It is mainly filled of their dancing, but small snippets of a little side story, which I don’t really understand. So I really cannot say anything about the music video as well. It is quite boring, as well. I literally watched it once. But not the full 3:52. I watched a bit and skipped to another bit and then the music video finished. I did like the lighting of the video and the guys do look creepy, but overall, I found the whole music video quite boring. I think this song is like a play on that movie of “Girlfriends of the Past” or something like that. It seems like the guys are quite frustrated that the girl just goes on after breaking up. As if they were ghosts and non existent. I am quite disappointed with this video.
The dance is interesting. I like that jumping bit and the choreography overall is quite cool to watch. Though it did feel fancy pancy just a little bit, I think the dance is quite well done compared to Aftermath or Phoenix from last year.
4/10. I tried, but I find this band remarkably boring, if you have not got the jist of the review yet.
