[Review][Single] TaeTiSeo “Twinkle”
Anyone with even the vaguest knowledge of K-Pop should know by now that Girls’ Generation has launched a sub-unit called TaeTiSeo. It’s not every day that the K-pop’s biggest girl group drops new music, so this is a cause for celebration — especially when the output is as sizzling hot as TaeTiSeo’s debut single ,“Twinkle”.
TaeTiSeo, imaginatively named after the unit’s members Taeyeon, Tiffany, and Seohyun, was obviously created to try and find something to do for whoever in Girls’ Generation had a few hours to spare, but that doesn’t mean that SM Entertainment has skimped on the quality. Funny enough, it seems like SM Entertainment put more time and effort into TaeTiSeo’s “Twinkle” than in Super Junior’s entire “Mr. Simple” comeback.
“Twinkle” taps into the retro sound that’s been dominating K-Pop for the past year, but it’s closer to the funk of “Trouble Maker” than the vintage disco of “Roly Poly”. It’s bursting with old-school sass and some seriously divalicious vocals, with a glossy bubblegum-soul finish for that addictive K-Pop edge. If SECRET combined their sexy songs like “Love is MOVE” and “Madonna” with the cuteness of “Shy Boy”, you’d end up with “Twinkle”.
Rainbow Pixie needs to take some notes from “Twinkle”; this is how you do a cute sub-unit.
SM really couldn’t have picked a better trio to lead Girls’ Generation’s first sub-unit. Taeyeon’s an amazing vocalist and Seohyun is pretty good in her own right, while Tiffany has more charisma and likeability than the group sometimes knows what to do with. Together, they’re a deadly combo, and completely debunk the false belief that Girls’ Generation can only work as nine. And with the vocals coming out of these girls, they’re going to win over some of the non-believers who claim that the group has no talent.
The accompanying music video is adorable, and has more going on in it than the majority of Girls’ Generation’s past videography. TaeTiSeo play three superstar singers who have it all in the spunky visual — they pose for the paparazzi, wade their way through mountains of designer shoes, perform on stage, and even throw in some product placement by plugging in EXO-K and what looks like an upcoming Girls’ Generation perfume. It reminds me a little of Christina Aguilera’s “Ain’t No Other Man”, only through a colorful K-Pop kaleidoscope!
Through “Twinkle”, Girls’ Generation has been able to show a new side of themselves and further strengthen their position as pop’s premiere girl group. A lot of critics have tried to say that they’ve already peaked, but it’s clear that Girls’ Generation is only getting stronger with time. “Twinkle” has already achieved all-kill status in Korea and the album has set a new record for a Korean artist on the US iTunes chart after peaking at No. 4, so not only is their music just as good as ever, but they’re still reaching new heights of success.
Global Generation, can you feel the heat?
