This isn’t a title monitor or a “buried treasure,” however aespa’s new Tetris OST appears noteworthy sufficient to obtain a write-up. Sure… you learn that proper. “Tetris OST.” We’re dwelling within the upside-down, right here.
Fortunately, this upcoming Tetris film is billed as a biopic/thriller and never a type of terrible animated cash-ins that damage a era of nostalgia. I’m undecided how aespa match into this equation, however followers are anticipating any new music – online game themed or not.
Maintain On Tight interpolates the long-lasting Tetris theme and does a pleasant job extending it right into a full tune. A bridge or breakdown would have made this really feel much more full, however that’s simply not the character of pop music in 2023. A pulsating electro groove retains the tune aloft till it reaches its acquainted refrain. Tetris melody apart, I’m amazed how a lot the association seems like a unusual Eurovision entry. Aespa are well-suited for camp in the event that they’d actually give into the extra ridiculous aspect of their music, and I may see this being a step in that path.
Total, Maintain On Tight isn’t sturdy sufficient to maneuver past an attention-grabbing footnote of their discography. However so far as OSTs go, I’m glad now we have it.
