The nine-member girl group deliver a synth-y dance track along with b-side "Do the Catwalk."
Girls' Generation release their eighth single for the Japanese market, "Galaxy Supernova," on Wednesday (Sept. 18). Backed by pulsing synths, the ninesome bring a hearty helping of earworm hooks, mostly by repeating single syllables with many do's, eh's and oh's echoing throughout the electro-pop offering. The track pales in comparison to hard-hitting J-pop releases such "Paparazzi" and "Mr. Taxi," but those hooks make it no less likely to get stuck in listener's heads.
"Galaxy Supernova" will be used in conjunction with the girls' new endorsement deal with Japanese fashion company Samantha Tavasa. The partnership undoubtedly colored the accompanying music, featuring the group dancing in a flashy virtual reality world while rocking multicolored skinny jeans, likely courtesy of their newest sponsor.
