Put it in ya…what are ya’ll suggesting?

When they dropped the passible Fanfare last year, we though we wanted to hear more from SF9 (even though we didn’t review the song because we really couldn’t find much to say about it).  Now that they have returned with their first EP, we

First, the positives.  The overall sound of the track is really nice.  The beat has a deep, thoaty sound to it despite the electronic flourishes that come in and out a moment’s notice.  The vocals are pretty good (although we are noticing a lack of fullness considering there are so many members) and the harmonies are well placed and do a lot to add complexity to what could have easily been a just-okay delivery from the members.

Now, the bad.  Lyrically, though, this song is all over the place.  While some of our confusion can be due to the cultural gap, there is a lot of emphasis on catch phrases for all of this to make sense.  Also, the song doesn’t really seem to fit the group.  The first thing that we thought was, “Is this a leftover NCT 127 track from their first EP?”  While some of that has to do with the way the visual was shot, it has that feeling that this wasn’t meant written and produced with them in mind.

Altogether, the song is good but not great (our total review of Burning Sensation at large).  Here’s hoping their next outing comes with a little more flavor and a lot more individuality.

Lyrics:
Hey boomy boomy like that

Hey little mama
Going crazy every night, yeah
Hey boomy boomy like that
Hey boomy boomy like that

Scream and shout till your voices burst
Like a party yeah
Hey boomy boomy like that
Hey boomy boomy like that

So dangerous
Crazy, can’t escape
Run it run it run
There’s no time
Don’t misunderstand
Don’t worry

Yup, gather here, hot swagger
Forget em, get drunk like a mirage
Sway, special special lady
Hide everything in your young rashness
Seek forgiveness

Roar
Start your engines
It’s obvious, lady
La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la
Start your engines
La la la la la la la
It’s obvious, lady
Roar

Ah I’m a chillin babe
Trust you? No
No mercy, all the money you dreamed of
It’s no big deal, Paradise
Hey boomy boomy like that
Hey boomy boomy like that

Oh little mama, snap out of it
Follow me, yeah
Hey boomy boomy like that
Hey boomy boomy like that

So dangerous
Crazy, can’t escape
Run it run it run
There’s no time
Don’t misunderstand
Don’t worry

Yup gather here
Hot swagger
Snap out of it, look at the mood
Get out of the way, beep beep
Hide everything in your young rashness
Seek forgiveness

Roar
Start your engines
It’s obvious, lady
La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la
Start your engines
La la la la la la la
It’s obvious, lady

Get on the rhythm, burn up
Nothing can stop us
Blank rhythm
Bass kick boom boom
Everything looks easy
Putting everything on with your money
Bounce like oh
Throw your hands up, I’ma do me

Wherever I look, everyone is ninano
Nililia, everyone shake it
Burn up your youth, just stop it now
Break it down now
Roar

No no no, hotly in your heart
Changing your life
It’s obvious, throw it away

La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la
Start the fire
La la la la la la la
It’s obvious, throw it away
Turn yourself back from being ruined

La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la
Start the fire
La la la la la la la
It’s obvious, throw it away
Turn yourself back from being ruined

La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la
Start the fire
La la la la la la la
It’s obvious, throw it away
Roar
