One song. Every day. Alphabetical order.
Butterfly (from Red Light – 2014)
In many ways, Butterfly (나비) begins like so many tracks from SM Entertainment history. Its core synth stomp has been popular with the agency since the mid-00’s, but f(x) soon take it in a different direction with Butterfly’s airy, near-psychedelic chorus. This segment has always reminded me strongly of producer William Orbit’s late-90’s/early-00’s work with artists like All Saints. There’s an ambient quality to some parts of the instrumental, but any worries of Butterfly becoming overly fussy are jettisoned once you become absorbed in that widescreen melody.
