The accompanying video for "Sober" more or less lines up with the tracks' lyrics about wanting to be anything but after breaking up with a significant other. The guys appear to be going mad in a colorful world where G-Dragon laughs maniacally in a field littered with beds, Taeyang is stuck in a steam shower in the forest, and T.O.P flips cars with his mind as baby goats watch. Throughout it, they move from looking hilariously paranoid to deliriously happy with the visual's trippy color scheme adding to the intoxicated feel. But amidst their crises, the guys come together at the end to wobble and stumble through a field to chase a golf car spewing green gas emissions.
In addition to "Sober," BIGBANG also released a new ballad "If You." Touted as the quintet's most emotional piece yet, the cut is centered around sparse guitar strums, impassioned belts and haunting croons throughout the chorus. For how silly the guys are getting in "Sober," this ballad quickly changes the mood for one of the band's most instantly striking pieces in years.
For the pairs of singles dropped in May and June, BIGBANG has managed to secure the Top 2 of Billboard's World Digital Songs chart each time. Should "Sober" and "If You" manage the feat as well, they'll beat PSY's record for K-pop acts, who currently only has owned the Top 2 spots twice while having three No. 1s on the tally.
