Supersonic 2013 is set to take place on August 14 and 15 at three locations throughout Seoul Olympic Park: Gymnastics Hall Super Stage, Handball Stadium Sonic Stage, and outdoor Hello Stage. Cho will be the headlining act on the Super Stage on the last day of the festival, which will also feature acclaimed international acts like Pet Shop Boys and John Legend, as well as domestic performers such as Jaurim and MC the Max.
SUPERSONIC contains 12 tracks and features some of the big names in the music industry. Aside from John Park, which featured from pre-released track Would We Have Changed, the album also features collaborations with Tiger Jk and Jay Park.
With her big comeback, Younha brought along Jay Park, John Park, and Tiger JK to feature in her songs, bringing another layer of talent to the album. Rock Like Stars featuring Tiger JK seemed unsettling and frantic as strong rock band instrumentals overshadowed vocals, and contrary to the hype and anticipation, this track failed to impress with the lack of a particularly catchy beat or chorus. On the other hand, the single Would We Have Changed with John Park presented a beautiful harmony between the two strong vocalists. If Younhas voice was like a perfect sundae with her chillingly perfect tone, John Park has to be the warm chocolate on top with his sweet, mid-range vocals.
Drive featuring Jay Park is like the ugly duckling of the album as it stands out like a sore thumb. I was clearly not ready for this one. Jay Park does indeed fulfill his part by bringing his own Seattle swag into the song. But the clashing transition from rap to rock to rap and back to rock again is definitely too fresh style for me, but what did stand out was the beginning of the change you will soon see in Younha as she claims:
Producer Score (Primary Score, Lee Seung Chul, Primary Skool) makes frequent appearances throughout the album and even dips his hands in the title track, People, which anyone and everyone can relate to. Singing about the ordinary days, happenings that ordinary people experience, the song emphasizes the mundane nature of our daily lives with its steady piano beats. Younha mentioned when she guested on Yoo Hee Yeols Sketchbook that she wrote this song thinking about the blank facial expressions on the faces of the people coming back from work. I personally enjoy the song for its commonness as the melody fits perfectly with the lyrics.
8. Set Me Free: Another gentler piano and drum driven piece that builds up slowly to a slightly rousing chorus. Despite the song being hard to fault in terms of composition and vocally, as well as how well it fitted the album, it did not really seem to stand out. Maybe because of the uniform quality of the album so far, but partly because of how the production was slightly dulled out.
9. Pasta Cream Sauce: An up-tempo song that shows Younha in territory she is most comfortable with, with its rather orthodox use of guitars and drums to create the sound, as well as her voice giving the song the usual rock-lite treatment. While the song does not break from the unified sound of the album, it serves as a nicer break from the mellower compositions earlier on.
10. Waiting: Largely guitar and piano based, with a string arrangement and some electric guitar for the chorus, this mid-tempo song is continues on the rock-lite theme of the album. However, it proves to be more stimulating than some of the earlier tracks, partly due to the soaring chorus.
With the release of Younhas new album Supersonic being released in four days, two brief audio teasers were revealed today. Yesterday, a video teaser for the album was released.
The first teaser has a rock sounding intro before her sweet sounding voice is heard. The second audio teaser is almost two minutes long and features a beautiful and uplifting instrumental that focuses on guitar sounds.
