The boy band play a delightful cast characters in the geekiest K-pop video of the year
After snagging their first Top 10 hit with melancholic ballad "Lonely," K-pop boy band B1A4 return to a fun, pop-leaning style for their latest single "Solo Day." The guys' palpable energy is felt throughout the song and its video game-themed music video.
B1A4's latest has a carefree-pop sound to make it a spot-on summer single a la Girl's Day's "Darling." The quintet's spring 2013 release "What's Happening" riffed on One Direction's shout-along pop style and "Solo Day" is another feel-good track one can blast from the car speakers. There's lively guitars, bumping 808 and a folky whistle section – pervasive in pop and K-pop music alike nowadays – making the song all the more addictive after multiple spins.
