VIXX Go Lighter But Stay Edgy With 'Dynamite' Single & Video

FUSE TV - VIXX Go Lighter But Stay Edgy With 'Dynamite' Single & Video

VIXX solidified themselves on the K-pop scene with a slew of story-driven, dark-tinged concepts and singles seen in releases like "Voodoo Doll," "Error" and last year's "Chained Up." For their latest release, the boy band looks to evolve by somewhat brightening their image while keeping their edgy style with the new single "Dynamite."

The track opens strong by showcasing the band's signature gritty style with a slick house-inspired beat, mysterious saxophones and their punchy delivery as they talk about taking shots with a girl. But the chorus switches up the vibe, trading the sultry sounds for bubblegum-y hooks mixed with blasts of peppy brass. It isn't the first time VIXX has taken a break and gone straight-forward pop (2013's "G.R.8.U." came out after the dark "Hyde" and "Voodoo Doll," and was one of the best boy band singles of the year), but it feels like VIXX couldn't totally decide if they were going to go light or dark so they wound up in somewhere in-between when we know they could have gone so much more creative.
