It's summertime, and to K-pop fans that means a few things: A slew of upbeat anthems, their favorite stars wearing trendy summer looks, and an inevitable comeback from Sistar. For the last five years, the female quartet has topped the charts with a feel-good single every season, but for 2016 they've turned into sultry sirens for "I Like That."
The girl group's latest is a smoky, horn-laden electronic cut that feels worlds away from last year's enjoyable-but-super-safe pop track "Shake It." There are moments of grinding synthesizers, stadium-size guitar riffs, and the song's double whammy at the pre-chorus where Hyolyn and Soyou's vocals battle against one another before they collectively leap into the tempo-shifting chorus.
The accompanying video also showcases the sexiest Sistar we've seen since 2012's "Alone" as the women appear like Greek goddesses, whipping through their most intense dance routine in years as they shimmy among silks and slide about the dancefloor.
"I Like That" is the lead single from Sistar's Insane Love EP that boasts six new tracks, including the cut "Say I Love You" that was written and produced by Hyolyn—a first for the K-pop star.
