I’m not sure what I was expecting for AOA’s latest comeback but I don’t think it was this.
Fashioned somewhere between a furry convention, Madonna’s “Vogue” and the soundtrack to an H&M department store, AOA has released their first teaser for “Like A Cat” (“Sappeun Sappeun”).
And while the sexy concept isn’t a surprise considering that AOA has gone that particular route consistently since the group gained traction, the beat is a bit unorthodox for Brave Brothers as the production appears to ditch the team’s signature disco sound in favor of something infinitely more eighties and “glam”. However, the beat is plenty slick and the black and white motif plays well with the sex kitten concept, even though the rest (especially those god awful masks) is on the verge of overkill.
Also, while Seolhyun is very pretty and all that, she isn’t exactly giving off the sexiest vibe here, despite all the editing and wardrobe trickery going on. When she “claws” in the air, I want to pet her on the head and give her a ball of yarn to play with.
