The Windy Day Challenge

Well girl group competition sure is high right now. So many releases. Oh My Girl is back with some turnaround promotions for their repackage album. I'll be honest, I thought Liar Liar was so many steps back from the amazing Closer that it fell below their kind of awkward yet still creative and fun debut. As a promising group with a unique style I was worried they were falling into the generic boring cutesy trap, but now they have come to prove those fears unfounded.



More fun jams, more middle east influence (this time in music rather than astrology), more nods to... kinda creepy folklore of mystically endangered innocence... Yes, this is the OMG I was hoping would further develop.

Here is my challenge: Listen to it 10 times in a row and see if you don't love it by then.

It's definitely strange at first and suffers a bit from kpop multisong syndrome, but it sinks in to win you over. It's fresh stuff that stands out.

  1. The video would have been top notch if the idiots in post production had not applied stupid blur filters to random parts of the image. Somebody must have told them a five minute version of the bokeh concept and instead of understanding how it can be used to focus the attention on a subject in a 3d environment they randomly applied it in 2d to fuck with my eyes and reduce fap value.

    Liar liar was ok, but I like how this song follows the steps of https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a879YRhrew0 in terms of changing pace happily and preventing me from falling asleep. Bestiality is always fun. Unless you drive over a cow, like my english teacher did, and get a hilariously big fine.

  2. Damn, the "Windy Day" part totally got me! Didn't even need 10 tries to like the song. Thanks for posting this, otherwise I wouldn't have known this song exists.

  3. The harmonization during the bridge and Arabian style instrumental during the chorus sell the song for me. I wouldn't say it's my top OMG song, but it's an enjoyable listen. "Closer" and "One Step, Two Steps" and even "Cupid" remain my favorites in that order, but that could change. Also, they look cute in suits. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tfSOuMZOVaQ

  4. I was blown away by the arabian influenced part. Nothing cutesies girl group have tried before. By the way, I did told you guys that Pink Ocean was awesome, did I?

  5. Honestly I would love the song more if the indian part by other everyday instrumentals (a la GFriend's instrumental break), but hey maybe just me.

  6. If Liar Liar was sung without a very high pitch, everyone would love it

  7. Did nothing for me. Instead I'm calling this Wendy Day and watching Red Velvet performances.

  8. Liar Liar is one of my favorite songs this year. I don't like this or Closer. It's crazy how opinions vary
