K-pop-rock girl group Dreamcatcher dropped their new single “Full Moon” on Friday (Jan. 12), and announced that they’ll be releasing additional music in March.

Their first new music of the year, “Full Moon” was released through a short promotional video that, like most of Dreamcatcher’s videos, took the song's haunting melody and poised it as the soundtrack to a bewitching clip. Featuring a young girl casting a spell over the object of her affection, tarot cards and love potions come into play as the juvenile witch dresses up maturely to meet her ensorcelled date.

The video, about a minute-long, does not feature Dreamcatcher’s members, but does promise that the group will have a comeback in March.

Like all of Dreamcatcher’s singles, the song soars with dynamic instrumentals and the band’s expressive vocals. It’s punchy styling sounds distinctly like an anime theme song, as powerful drums and riotous strings drive the aggressively uptempo tune.

“Full Moon” was released to celebrate the girl group’s first anniversary and came out a few weeks before the rookie act embarks on a tour of European countries in February. 

A rebranded version of the act formerly known as MINX, Dreamcatcher became a fan favorite among many international K-pop fans ever since the release of "Chase Me" last year, largely due to to their distinct rock and metal leanings as well as their highly-stylized music video storylines. The girl group's Prequel EP went to No. 5 on the World Albums chart last August.
