GOT7 returned Monday (March 12) with their Eyes On You EP, their first of 2018.
The seventh EP from the K-pop septet, Eyes On You is fronted by “Look,” a propulsive dance track imbued with deep house and hip-hop elements. Co-written by member JB, it is GOT7’s second single of the year, following last month’s “One and Only You” collaboration with Hyolyn.
Like many other GOT7 singles, there’s a sense of kinetic energy in the act’s latest as it vacillates between groovy melodies and heavy bass beats, emphasizing both the vocalist’s crisp tones and the dramatic raps from the act’s trio of rappers. The song’s warm, reassuring tone emulates the lyrics, which feature the members asking that the object of their affection takes a “Look” and gains emotional support from their loving gaze. As a single, it finds a subtle balance between the K-pop team’s most recent sounds, verging on melodious without veering all the way into the atmospheric styling of “You Are,” and incorporating dynamism without diving too far into the glitch-y, harder hitting vibe “Never Ever,” both released last year.
