Boom Bang Boom (from Red Light – 2014)
A sparse, mostly percussive dance track, Boom Bang Boom lives up to f(x)’s idiosyncratic reputation. It’s a song that thrives on competing textures, from the grimy verses to the skeletal beat drop that blossoms into a more robust melodic hook. There’s so much happening in this song. It barrels through distinct segments every few seconds, pulled together by the group’s attitude-infused performance. The titular hook hits like a sledgehammer, bookended by taunting chants and the occasional ode to aegyo. It’s not a song for every moment, but if you’re in the mood for some bonkers pop, this is for you.
~ Rest in peace, Sulli. We will forever be grateful for the incredible music and spirit you left behind ~
