Snuper makes their comeback with Tulips and their 5th mini-album, titled appropriately as Blossom. The members were last on stage with The Stars of Stars. Some of the members did participate in the recent survival shot The Unit: Idol Rebooting Project, however (from memory), they were eliminated in the earlier episodes of the show. Despite this, I am still interested in them for many of their recent releases have been favourites of mine.
Let’s start with something that caught me off guard. I thought that they mispronounce ‘Tulips’ as ‘Your Lips‘ throughout the song. It took me a while to realize that this completely deliberate and thought it was quite smart after I realized. When I listened to the song for the first time, it felt weird. I was not sure if I liked the new hip-hop vibes that they were going for. However, with a few extra listens, the song does grow on you. It is nice to hear something completely new from the group. The verses do sound quite nice yet it still does sound foreign. Like all songs, the chorus does attract my attention. I thought it sounded classy and cool. It might not be everyone’s cup of tea, I will admit that. The vocals were nice and the rapping was quite good. Overall, Snuper’s new song may be different but it works perfectly.
It occurs once in a while where I don’t really enjoy the urban or industrial vibes for the music video. This is one of the times. As mentioned before, I thought the chorus was classy and cool. I just didn’t get that in the video. For me, I think the video would have been better if they were dressed up in suits and maybe presented tulips to every girl they saw. While the suits parts were covered in the music video, it was rather limited. Just listening to the song, I just don’t get casual wear vibes. It might just be me but that was what I felt. However, the video was well shot and still looked nice.
Going back to the styling, the choreography works better in suits. I really liked the flower shape that they make with their hands and the lip rubbing felt quite appropriate. Nothing much else to say.
