Sunmi releases new music so occasionally that even an under-the-radar duet like Lights Out (불이꺼지고) fills me with pleasure. The track pairs her with fashionable rapper BE’O, whose efficiency right here is midway between a rap and croon. That matches the vibe of the monitor, which is easy and unbothered by any must ship greater than a trendy groove. Aesthetically, it’s exhausting to complain about Lights Out. It’s aloof and funky with out even lifting a finger.
However apart from moody background music, there’s not a lot to sink your tooth into right here. The track depends on an oft-repeated melodic hook and barely raises above a breathy coo. I may think about Lights Out making a pleasant backdrop to a scene in a film, however I’ve little use for it by itself.
