Mamamoo, "Starry Night"

Korean girl group Mamamoo returned earlier this week with not one but two new music videos to start off March.

"Star Wind Flower Sun," released Tuesday, and the single "Starry Night," released Wednesday, are two of the tracks off of the group’s Yellow Flower album, also out on the 7th. The quartet's sixth EP, and the third to reference a color in the title, the album features a total of seven tracks, including the two lead songs and January's "Paint Me."

The single “Starry Night” is an atmospheric power ballad overflowing with rhythmic, Latin-inspired strings and whirring synths, utilizing a shifting tempo and teasing drops to control the mood as the members effusively sing about the empty feelings that follow heartbreak. Meanwhile “Star Wind Flower Sun" is an evocative piano-based ballad. The pair of songs serve as forums for Mamamoo’s expressive vocals, and the latter was co-written by members Solar and Moonbyul.

Each of the songs were released with a music video. "Star Wind Flower Sun" depicts the four members of Mamamoo singing amid picturesque scenery and spending time together, and ends with a dedication to “our precious people.” In contrast to the home-video style of the first clip, the music video for "Starry Night" is a dramatically filmed feature poising the women of Mamamoo as sophisticated, sultry vocalists as they sing their way through the vivid imagery of New Zealand, sheep and all. Looking much like a behind-the-scenes from a magazine spread, “Starry Night” ends with the foursome dancing on the beach at night.

Since their formation in 2014, Mamamoo's become known for their impressive vocal capabilities as well as their retro jazzpop & R&B-tinged music. Last year, their Purple EP peaked at No. 1 on the World Albums chart, which has also seen three other albums from the group reach the top 15.
