BZ-Boys (otherwise known as Blue Zone Boys) have been kicking around since 2019. They debuted under Chrome Entertainment — an agency most famous for quirky girl group Crayon Pop. Unfortunately, lengthy hiatuses have blunted most of their momentum and their material has tended to lean on the generic side.
New single Find You (널 찾으러 갈게) once again pairs them with producer Stardust, though not much about the song feels specific to any one vision. Like many boy group tracks, the song is successful in pieces. But, its sporadic nature makes it difficult to enjoy. The song kicks off with a gentle, satisfying pulse. There are clearly some nice vocalists in BZ-Boys, and Find You‘s strongest moments take advantage of this. The chorus could do with more development, but has a surging energy that’s quite satisfying.
Sadly, much of this falls apart during Find You‘s fitful verses. Too often, the track opts for generic boy group moodiness over engaging structure. The first verse is fairly straightforward and the rap-heavy pre-chorus does a decent job setting up the hook. However, verse two feels lifted from another song entirely. The energy blunts in a distracting way and takes too long to recover. This approach is better-used during the bridge, where a lull in intensity can help to usher in a climactic finale. I would have loved to hear more symphonic elements as a way to tie the song’s various segments together. Find You hints at this grandeur, but never really commits.
