This time, it's @codecat's, Lovelyz's wonderful That Day. That Day is the title track of Lovelyz' fourth mini album, Heal. Written and composed by Sweetune, the powerful production unit breathed new life to Lovelyz' sound. This is probably my most favourite Lovelyz' single since... Destiny??? That was a long time ago, omfg. That Day retained Lovelyz brand of femininity and whimsy. The production, as expected from Sweetune, is iconique. I can't stress enough how that pre-chorus perfectly flows to the chorus. It's stops me from my tracks every single time. The background vocals, especially during the pre-chorus, are a work of art. And when that chorus hits... wigs cease to exist. I don't know how anyone can possibly hate this. This is so happy-sounding and instantly lifts my mood. I'd also like to say that Lovelyz are probably the prettiest girl group out there and I hate that their visuals are so understated. Honestly, I had the hardest time choosing the image to use for the song art because EVERY. SINGLE. PROMOTIONAL. PHOTO. for That Day is just perfect. I'm weeping from the amount of beauty. Honestly speaking, I don't think Lovelyz will ever be KPJ faves. I think majority of y'all have fallen to the concept that Lovelyz are the epitome of beige which is just wrong. Sure, they don't switch concepts as often as, say, Red Velvet or their music can sound very similar at times. But we also stan groups (I'm not saying which) that frankly never change concepts and we're somehow okay with that. No tea, no shade, I'm just saying it's possible to be true to your sound and aesthetic and still deliver the goods. Lovelyz are masters at that. Reboot makes amends: "This song completely passed me by. It’s pretty." ThighHighs is a soul sister: "This is definitely a bit more soulful than their other songs I’ve heard. I love!" And ryjm is also pretty impressed: "Ok gurls this is more like it! The chorus is everything, those wistful vocals and that bouncy joyous synth is all I need. The track is beautiful and airy and the video is dreamy too." But that low score of 5 says otherwise. Kuhleezi, our lowest scorer, is bitter: "It's not fair to say I'm over Lovelyz's brand of cutesy cause I've never been into it to begin with. It's just... a lot to process. I desperately need something to balance the sugar, anything really." YOU SHOULD BALANCE THE SUGAR WITH YOUR BITTER ATTITUDE. And his best friend, Dangerous Maknae, joins him in the haters' camp: "I liked the majority of Lovelyz singles up until Twinkle but it has been a downhill since then." I don't even remember how Twinkle goes LJHSAKJFGHJK. Don't kill me, @codecat. I'm not sure how to interpret this comment from Miyawakiwi: "Well, it’s lovelyz, and they did it again… for good or for bad." I just smell shade. He channels Tiffany Pollard: "She’s a cute girl, but a bit plain." Meanwhile, Serg. attacks the tacky purple border dddddd: "You can't expect the chorus to carry the whole song, verses are very poor and whats with that purple border in the music video it's very distracting." The purple is a nice touch, beast. Gintoki loves some sugar: "This is so sugary, diabetes level, but I like it." And our highest scorer, RUNAWAY, commends nugus' 2018 efforts: "that melancholic vibe is something I just love about this song. All these nugu or flop groups really slayed this year. This chorus is something else." I'd argue Lovelyz aren't as nugu as you think, unnie. Let's give the floor to codecat and her ballad. Don't think I didn't clock you not giving this a 10, heaux: "Yes @NancyDrewknae you guessed it - this is my Supersarang. I mostly picked it because: if I'm forced to withstand all these boy group moments, then everybody can listen to a Lovelyz song as well! Key changes are like crack for a gay and guess what THIS SONG IS BUILT AROUND AT LEAST THREE OF THEM. That day is one of the finest examples of the Lovelyz sound: a smart blend of bubbly synths and traditional instruments, somewhere between beaming happiness and concealed wistfulness, and full of intricate harmonies and BVs that are so easy to get lost into. You hear those ahhhhhs? That is the universe whispering beauty in your ears. For each play you give this, you age a year backwards - I have listened to this a gazillion times and I am now a rejuvenated fetus (don't ask how I typed this). Lovelyz had an amazing run on 2018, and both this song + Lost N Found have found a spot for themselves among the group's glory singles such as Twinkle, Wow, Destiny and Candy Jelly Love - and I hope some of you unnies liked this song enough to seek the other ones I mentioned! Slicey if this bombs it is your duty as my fellow LOVELINUS to make sure that some low scores get...accidentally deleted x" A fucking mess.
