First comes the red, then comes the Velvet!

After a brief release delay, Red Velvet returns with an EP of slow jams that seems to be meant to flush out their album of upbeat dance tunes.  The lead single from this set is the deceptively lush One Of These Nights which, initially sounding like it’s underwhelming ballad, has the listener hooked by the end of the first chorus.  The vocals of this song are the highlight from the moment it starts and the production, which switches between a more orchestral sound to a more romantic jazz/R&B sound, serves to highlight the subtle harmonies.

The video itself still has the signature look that we have come to expect from the ladies but without the clone style, allowing each member to stand out for herself more.

It may be rarer now, but we will always come back to pop!gasa

Lyrics:
I just woken up from a dream
There’s a sad, lone star in the dark sky once again
Goodbye, we said our awkward goodbyes
As I turned around and went on my way
It felt so far

In the same time, just for a minute
In the same place, stay for a minute

In that short moment, everything stopped for you and me
Why didn’t I know that was a miracle?
I’ve stopped in that day with the old story
I’m going through heartache longer than the times we loved

Past the Milky Way, in a faraway place
I’m going through our white memories
It’s alright if it’s just a dream
Let’s meet again

One Of These Nights
Let’s meet again
One Of These Nights
I can’t quickly forget
Because I’m still in the same place even when the pages of the calendar turns

In your eyes, just for a minute
In your passing touch, stay for a minute

In that short moment, everything stopped for you and me
Those times shine for me
I’ve stopped in that day with the old story
I’m going through heartache longer than the times we loved

Past the Milky Way, in a faraway place
I’m going through our white memories
It’s alright if it’s just a dream

Baby One of these days
One of these years
Waiting is just a little thing for me now

I’ve stopped in that day with the old story
I’m going through heartache longer than the times we loved

Past the Milky Way, in a faraway place
I’m going through our white memories
It’s alright if it’s just a dream
Let’s meet again

One Of These Nights
Let’s meet again
One Of These Nights
