Channeling B-list superhero and sci-fi flicks, Korean boy band EXO dropped a playful music video for their new single “Power” on Tuesday.
One of three new songs off ofThe Power of Music, the extended re-release of July’s The War, “Power” is an upbeat EDM track laden with quirky synths and pounding drums while the boy band sings about how music is a force that brings people together. Dynamic as it shifts tones between harmonious vocals and bouncing raps to build into a vibrant choral hook, the track lives up to its name and is one of EXO’s most energetic singles to date.
Accompanying the propulsive track, EXO has released a music video that plays up the boy band’s more comical side, turning the group into a squad of soldiers fighting against a robot intent on killing them. Featuring animation and scenes that appear derived from video games series and the likes of Power Rangers and Cartoon Network, the five-minute long video matches the song's lively style, blending humor and drama as EXO fight for their lives.
