[Song & MV Review] Jessica – 'It's Spring'

April 18 is Jessica's birthday, and instead of receiving gifts she sent one to the fans -- the single "It's Spring!"

Right off the bat, I'll admit that I'm not the biggest fan of the beginning. It's got an uninspiring retro lounge vibe running through the piano melody that more serves to annoy me than anything. Although I like the part where it slows down and you can hear someone switch it on again.

Where it picks up is about the 1:14 mark, where the tempo shoots up and the overdubs give Jessica's angelic voice a boost. That's when it shifts and becomes sweet and almost innocent. The feeling is now more of walking under cherry blossoms and admiring the blooms of spring. This is what I was hoping for, and the net effect is so much better than just another pop song. The weather's warming up, and the song is now warm, too.

[Song & MV Review] A Pink – 'Always'

The girls of A Pink want to thank their fans for standing with them with their new single "Always!" The tune was released as a digital single back on April 19 to celebrate their sixth anniversary since their debut.

"Always" has that strumming that starts out so many pop tunes, and then we get some synth, and Hayoung's lovely voice starts out the song. There are some nice flourishes, particularly in the beginning. Then her voice gives way to Naeun, then Bomi, and the rest of the lovely sextet as the song continues apace.

[Song & MV Review] KARD – Rumor

The "hidden concept" co-ed quartet KARD are back again. Their debut plan was to span 3 singles, each detailing part of a story. "Oh NaNa" was the romance, "Don't Recall" was the split, "Rumor" is the final part.

"Rumor" has the same reggaeton beat they've used throughout all of their tunes, reggae with a hint of hip hop and a dash of EDM thrown in for good measure. The fusion has worked in the past, and it works well here, too. The lyrics tell the final part of the tale. She hears a rumor that he's with someone else, he gets wind of it, and they go on agonizing over the fact that they're broken up.

MOMOLAND -- WONDERFUL LOVE

2. Wonderful Love (Instrumental)

Momoland, Duble Kick's first ever girl group, made a splash in the industry with their debut mini-album 'Welcome to Momoland' which spawned the single "Jjan! Koong! Kwang!" Now they're back with new members Daisy and Taeha with the single "Wonderful Love!"

The song itself is a bright, upbeat, happy one. Everything about the melody screams cute and fun, which is the fundamentals behind the band's "amusement park" concept. It's danceable, singable, and just all around a decent song. 9 girls belting out "I will be always on your side" is actually pretty powerful stuff.

ONEW x ROCOBERRY -- "LULLABY"

SHINee's Onew and indie band Rocoberry team up to give you the latest SM STATION track, "Lullaby." For those who don't know, Rocoberry is an indie musical duo -- Roco (vocalist) and Conan (chorus, composer). They both write the lyrics to their songs. "Lullaby" is their tune, reworked to include Onew.

"Lullaby" is a sweet tune that evokes a conversation between two lovers. Roco starts out the tune, but Onew joins soon enough, and soon they're a duo, singing together. There's a cleanly picked guitar riff that serves as the main melody.
