After some pretty funny (and, at first sight, scary) teasers for his new girl group landed well, JYP has finally gifted us with their first EP and video.

Put together through the reality show Sixteen, Sana, Ji Hyo, Chae Young, Momo, Na Yeon, Jeong Yeon, Da Hyun, Tzuyu, and Mina show off that they have the potential to be more than just a flash in the pan.  Like OOH-AAH starts off really nice with a unique production style that sounds a bit throwback but with a modern edge that makes it interesting from the first few notes.  The production goes downhill a bit once the track hits the chorus and slips into that kind of innocuous kpop style that you expect from more cutesy girl groups than this.  The song is kind of everywhere, as if it’s trying to show off everything that this group can do in one song and it only mildly works.  That said, the girls actually sound really nice and once JYP can help narrow down their concept a little, they could make some pretty good music.

The visual keeps the zombie vibe that they started with the teasers as the girls start off in a walker-infested high school before moving on to a new location, all while singing and dancing.  If you saw World War Z you know that noise attracts them, so you can see where this is going.
