K-Pop A-Z: Infinite – Destiny

One song. Every day. Alphabetical order.

Keep up with Infinite’s A-Z reviews here!

Destiny (from Destiny – 2013)

Barring their debut, Infinite had worked with Sweetune for every title track up until Destiny, making the switch to in-house producers Rphabet a big gamble. And while Rphabet strips much of the lush melodic touch that had become the group’s trademark, Destiny’s aggressive instrumental brought a needed bite to Infinite’s sound. The guys attack the dramatic, strings-laden arrangement with one of their most ferocious performances, weaving between rapid-fire refrains with a tense crackle of clipped notes and staccato delivery. Of all their post 2013 work, Destiny truly feels like a step in a new direction and a testament to Infinite’s versatility.
