Popular K-pop girl group TWICE returned today (July 9) with their latest single “Dance the Night Away.”
Their second Korean single of the year, and their fourth overall due to two Japanese releases, the nonet’s latest is a summery EDM and groovy pop track that bounces around over a beat of thumping bass, bright horns, and blaring synths. Like all TWICE songs, their latest incorporates an earworm of a hook, in this case the cheerful declaration of, “Let’s dance the night away!” over the dynamic melody.
The music video for “Let’s Dance the Night Away” turns the nine-members of TWICE into castaways who wash up in on a beach. Turning a terrible situation into a bad one, the women explore the island, take advantage of the suitcases they washed ashore with, and end up doing exactly what the song’s title suggests over the shuffling choral beat. Upon waking the next day and seeing a nearby boat, they decide to go back to sleep, ostensibly to remain in their little slice of tropical paradise.
