Having shed the image of a Wonder Girl, Sunmi is back on the scene with a new single and showing fans that she's ready to take a new kind of control over her career. By utilizing a mix of the qualities that made her a star under JYP's tutelage as well as some newfound quirkiness, Sunmi created what's sure to be a new standout in her discography and ushered in a new age for her artistic output.
"Gashina" starts off sounding like a familiar tropical house banger but subverts expectations by going the extra mile with its production and crossing into a more unconventional territory. The video matches the pace, with Sunmi going on some sort of journey of self-discovery by dancing (and convulsing, and making hand gestures) mostly in the absence of a supporting crew. This allows Sunmi to shine as a soloist and draws the focus squarely on what she's doing. Sunmi delivers the image and sound of someone "losing it" with a previously unseen confidence, never being swallowed up by the production or scenery in the process.
