When I first listened to “Is The White Horse Coming?” last night, I thought that it was too mainstream-sounding for Sunny Hill, and now I can’t believe that thought even crossed my mind. The dance-based production from K-Pop composer Lee Min Soo might catch Sunny Hill fans like myself off-guard at first, but it’s far from what you’d consider typical or commercial. The thumping house beats at the core of the song have been chopped up with Lee Min Soo’s usual quirky horns and topped off with splashes of acid jazz and Spanish flamenco, while the vocal arrangements are completely chaotic and crazy. It’s hard to tell where the song will go, but what it lacks in catchiness, it makes up for with its wild unpredictability.
“Is The White Horse Coming?” is cool, crazy, and sharply intelligent, which by now should be everything you’ve come to want and expect from a Sunny Hill single. It’s further proof that Lee Min Soo is one of the most off-the-wall producers in pop today, while Sunny Hill continue to be one of the most exciting girl groups in the game.
