One song. Every day. Alphabetical order.
The Eve (from The War / The Power Of Music – 2017)
Opening EXO’s 2017 album with a dark blast of creeping pop, The Eve takes an almost militant approach to its verses before pulling back to a vocal-rich pre-chorus. The chorus pulses with addictive bass, following a rhythmic structure that caters to EDM’s drop style but substitutes vocals in place of pure instrumentation. At just under three minutes, the song is finished before you know it, and I’ve always wished that it built to a more satisfying climax. Instead, The Eve slinks forward with a measured pace, never too in-your-face but effortlessly cool all the same.
