In Crime Scene, Dynamic Duo overlaps the story of a person leaving a relationship without a word, with that of a murder. They have adopted the roll of the victim in their song, filling it with mystery, desperation and heartbreak. The metaphor of a “crime scene” permeates through the entire song, painting the strong picture that the girl that has left is a murderer. With lines like ‘My tears were red like blood’, it is clear that this is a dark look at relationships and their outcomes. To put it simply, this song is serious; the atmosphere of the song and the almost lifeless voices of the artists creates a feel that is almost soul crushing.
The blame entirely lies with the girl in the eyes of the artist; To them, they have done nothing wrong in the relationship. Yet, they are still searching for answers as to why she leftas if answers could help. This song fully embodies the concept given, choosing a dark premiss to add extra emphasis on the heartbreaking end of the relationship. Dynamic Duo has chosen the expected route based on the inspiration and the final product came out perfect. I mean, who ever heard of a happy murder?
SHINee chose a different route than Dynamic Duo by playing the role of detectives that are in pursuit of a girls heart. They seem to be on top of this case; They have already identified their main suspect and found the evidence that ‘incriminates’ them. Living up to the name of the song, these super sleuths are as good as Sherlock.
