Concept chameleons VERIVERY are pulling the trigger, with a sneak peek at their upcoming EP ‘SERIES ‘O’ [ROUND 2: HOLE]’. The highlight medley released on August 12th at midnight threw listeners in for a spin with sugar, spice, and a little bit of everything nice mixed into their tracklist.
The week has been a wild journey starting with the video teaser of an escape room-esque scene to the photos that represent every definition that could exist behind perfect luminous duality. It was followed by the reveal of a tracklist that left fans sweeping their bangs to the side and zooming into the photo to take a closer look at the names written beneath one of the B-side songs listed.
With the highlight medley released, fan excitement has reached a new level that pushes VERIVERY further into the spotlight for their creative conceptualization and musical abilities. The added stunning visuals of all seven members in their dual concept outfits sealed the deal on an album that promises a perfect package that appeals to multiple senses.
The medley starts off with hard hitting catchy beats from their title track, ‘TRIGGER’, that make you literally want to “pull the trigger” – symbolically of course. It’s like a shot of adrenaline when the line “And I won’t stop now” comes through the speakers and runs through your veins with energy that needs some sort of release. The song brings along some familiar composers and lyricists on the credits list, assuring fans that it’s a guaranteed quality hit. It leaves you singing along to its chorus and teeming with energy from its layers of powerful vocals and well-timed ad libs.
It’s always the underdog that really shows up to a party and makes everyone drop their jaws to the floor with a major glow up. The second track, ‘Underdog’ does just that and doesn’t skip a beat despite being a non-title track song. From Yeonho’s strong vocals that resonate through with clarity and decisiveness to the drop that happens as Kangmin stares into your eyes with a loaded look, it’s another one for the books.
The third track, ‘Prom’, has hearts falling into an upbeat rhythm and tapping along with the snappy melody. With four members, Dongheon, Gyehyeon, Yeonho and Yongseung not only contributing as composers, but also as the lyricists to the song, it’s got fans dancing along with some “moves so classy”. It’s got an essence of cuteness to it, but with more depth and added layers of elegance, charisma, and sweet boy-ish charm.
As the last track in the highlight medley, ‘Heart Attack’ doesn’t disappoint and acts as another scene stealer to the title track with its rave-fitting beat that has listeners wanting to turn their room into a party scene. The high notes hit with a force that makes the song unforgettable.
VERIVERY’s sixth mini album ‘SERIES ‘O’ [ROUND 2 : HOLE]’ is set to release on August 23rd. Fans can look forward to the continuing storyline in their message surrounding the topic of the ‘O’ series, taking on the various symbolic meanings that it can have. VERIVERY will confront their inner darkness within themselves and discover how to use it, but this time with all seven members.
