:SIGH:…What the hell, Cube Entertainment?

In our 10 Best Dance Practices You May Have Missed post, we said that we nominated CLC for the most mishandled debut of the year award.  Well, apparently, Cube Entertainment has decided to continue the streak of bad decisions for this group and release the most WTF song on their new EP as the lead single.  While we don’t object to the edition of new members Elkie and Eun Bin, High Heels is probably going to land on our list of worst songs released this year (which is, sadly, longer than it should be for the end of February) just for the sheer confusion of it.  The constant beat changes, the odd retro cutesiness that seems like it’s trying to imitate Warm Hole, and the shallow vocals just don’t work.  Adding insult to injury, the video is almost unwatchable thanks to to low production values and absolutely nothing going on in it.

Luckily for the group, the rest of the EP is listenable; although, we do wonder how much of this was recorded with the aid of the new members as Eighteen was featured here back in April.

Lyrics:
All my girls I’m telling you
My look, my body. What’s a secret?
It’s my high heels that I’m wearing

Look carefully, a secret to be perfect
That’s all you need OK
Confident step

The reason I looked different, alright
I’ll let you know
Magic that will make you different Alright

Everybody clap your hands
One step one step To the left One step one step To the right
Put your high heels on and let’s dance tonight
One step one step To the left One step one step To the right
Put your high heels<br>Let’s just dance all night long

So what you wanna do So what you wanna do
Higher and higher, to be pretty
So what you wanna do So what you wanna do
Awkward Step no no no no

Poke the sky poke poke poke
Oh that snobby pride
That’s all you need OK
Confident step

The reason I looked different, alright
