One song. Every day. Alphabetical order.
An Inconvenient Truth (from New Challenge – 2013)
Long before the tropical trend hit maximum impact, An Inconvenient Truth’s bright synths brought an island sound to k-pop. Though the song’s lyrics have been derided by many, there’s no denying the strength of its production and melody. It’s one of Infinite’s most beat-driven tracks, stuffed with electronic drum fills and a persistent, upbeat drive. There’s an undeniable 80’s sentiment throughout, but rather than feel artificial or pre-programmed, the bounciness of Sweetune’s instrumental injects a jubilant sort of warmth that gives Truth an effortless, festive energy. And then there’s that brilliantly rhythmic hook, which pulls at the edges of Infinite’s sound to deliver a welcome transformation for the group.
