Kwon Eunbi’s new song ‘Glitch’ questions morality
The title song ‘Glitch’ is the popular UK-based sound of the garage genre that raises questions about the system of "what is right" while breaking away from the genre’s dense grid-line element. The song is made in collaboration with producers TAK and Corbin from NEWTYPE Entertainment. Eunbi goes with the trope of "the main character of my own fairytale", and completes her worldview as an artist and musically.
Eunbi also revealed her musical capability by participating in the composition of the track ‘OFF’ which contains a message of consolation that one would give themselves after countless thoughts of life and wounds in the late night. Through ‘Color’, Eunbi not only does color the music scene with her advanced performance and unique musicality, but she also solidifies her nickname – "complete solo act".
