South Korean group ATEEZ is back and with it brings double reasons for celebrations! The first being of course the beloved rapper Mingi making a comeback once again after the brief hiatus, and the second is the new music! ATEEZ made their comeback with the mini-album ZERO Fever Part: 3 on September 13, 2021. The octet has once again spun its magic with mesmerizing performance in the music video for the title track ‘Deja Vu’. The group has debuted on the Billboard 200 chart by ranking at No. 42. They have made it to top 50.
Let’s take a closer look at each of the six tracks from ATEEZ’s mini-album ZERO Fever Part: 3.
ATEEZ brings in an electro-pop with ‘Eternal Sunshine.’ It is simply impossible for anyone to not get up and groove to a beat or two when this song starts playing. The vocal harmonizing in pre-chorus, just before the beats drops creates a trance-like atmosphere in the song. The beat drop gives an added oomph to the main chorus in the song. Each member contributes brilliantly to the track, be it with vocals or rap verses. ‘Eternal Sunshine’ also makes references to Peter Pan and the Mobius trip, thus adding a spunky fantasy touch. The song paints a vibrant picture of eternal youth, especially with the lyrics like “You and I will make an evеrlasting festival / A night where еven the darkness sleeps.”
FEELING LIKE I DO
‘Feeling Like I Do’ is a love song through and through. The song is fast-paced and possesses a synth-based music base for the chorus. It takes a small detour in the rap verse, when the music changes to hip-hop like music to match the verse. Just like ‘Eternal Sunshine’ sports an entrancing pre-chorus, the song is a request and also an expression of how it feels to be with that special someone. This feeling is beautifully captured in lyrics like “When I'm thinking of you / Everything finds its place”
The song begins with trippy and catchy music which is also replicated in the chorus later. The song is different from its predecessors, with more hip-hop elements and staccato beats. One cannot help but remember the group’s previous powerful releases like ‘Answer’ and ‘Pirate King.’ The song is a complete dance package – right from the music to the choreography. The song steals the show with fantastical lyrics like “I feel an endless thirst / Know you get Deja Vu.”
It is not an ATEEZ musical offering if there is no mystery and story in the music video. The music video gives a nod to Answer where the octet was seen battling with another set of eight people. The graphics used in the music video are stunning, and the group is perfectly dressed to the nines. One cannot help but pause to reel in the beauty of it all. Towards the end of the music video, we see Yeosang fighting hard to keep the hourglass, but alas it is broken. A hand reaches out to him, but whose hand is it? What does this scene lead to in the ATEEZ Musical Universe?
If you haven’t already figured it out, ‘Rocky’ is an ode to the infamous fictional character Rocky Balboa who was immortalized on screen by the Hollywood actor Sylvester Stallone. It is a track where the group imagines themselves as fighters akin to Rocky Balboa. The song is a powerful anthem with a loud and adrenaline filled chorus. It goes up a notch higher than ‘Deja Vu,’ mainly when it builds upon the tension and leading the way to a cathartic chorus. The song has ample references to boxing, from the champion belt right to the moves like a right hook. ‘Rocky’ transports you right outside the boxing ring watching the members fight it out with lyrics like – “My fist filled with ambition that the world pays attention / On the ring, go louder 'til I become deaf, say my name.”
ALL ABOUT YOU
The group tames it two notches with ‘All About You’ which is quite mellow sounding. The echo that follows into the song renders a dreamy feel to the song. It plays heavily on the piano tunes that create a celestial vibe in the song. The occasional percussion and trap beats create a flawless harmony for this love song. The group uses calming imageries of the moon and nature to paint a soothing picture when they sing “Whenever I'm in your arms / I'm feeling going through space and moon/ The day I took my first steps / My vehicle was an apollo.”
NOT TOO LATE (밤하늘)
‘Not Too Late’ is that ballad that expresses the feelings of loneliness and determination to escape the darkness. The group confesses that it has not been easy, but it is not too late. They also send a message of hope to the listeners when they croon “Too late, too late / Oh, not too late / I believe that there must be a reason.” Through ‘Not Too Late’, ATEEZ reaches out to the deepest recesses of one’s heart and gives solace.
The members Hong-joong and Mingi participated in making every song. Hong-joong also participated in the penning the lyrics of the rock song ‘Rocky.’ Even though ATEEZ have played with semi-rock, pop and hip-hop, each track has a different taste. The mini-album weaves a short, yet meaningful tale starting right from its opening track ‘Eternal Sunshine’ to the final track ‘Not Too Late.’ The messages of love, hope and strength are consistent throughout ATEEZ’s latest musical offering. The mini-album serves a delectable plate of songs to choose from, and mind you, you won’t be satisfied with just one bite.
