The trio"s calming vocals can be briefly heard in their newly released MV teaser for title track, "Two One Two," off their upcoming EP. It sounds like the perfect one to listen to while studying in a cute cafe during the summer or going on a picnic date with your s.o.
The song features the popular rapper Beenzino who is always generous with his punchlines, and this time is no exception. The MV, with its cool blue hues, is a stark contrast to the light-hearted, carefree feel of the song. I was actually hoping to see Beenzino strut his "swag" in the video, but instead my eyes feasted upon a gender-ambiguous construction worker with lean muscles. He(?) actually turned out to be a really handsome girl. Uh...awkward.
The music video is directed by Heo Nam Hoon who also behind the megaphone for Urban Zakapas previous release- Upward. Installation artist Im Soo Mi appears in the music video. The video shows the artist creating one of her works, inspired by the message in the song Get.
They will be releasing a new EP with five tracks that are bound to be awesome. Known for their soothing, light, and at times even whispery ways of singning, the group promised to return with their well-known color, the same as ever, but of course, even better.
Based on the tracklist, the EP even looks like it"ll have a full, complete story told by the tracks, especially considering the first and last title. The track list goes:
RB singer-songwriter trio Urban Zakapa and rapper Beenzino are working to release an EP together. Fluxus Music, Urban Zakapa"s music agency, said late last week that the trio will return with more refined and sophisticated songs. The new music is expected to be different from the group"s previous songs because the rapper will add more color into their music.Since releasing their first single, "Cafe Latte", in 2009, the band has been highly loved for its sophisticated melodies, along with the members" sweet and mellow voices. The group is responsible for many hit songs, including "Beautiful Day", "The Day We" and "One Spring Day".BY JIN MIN-JI
Meanwhile, Urban Zakapa has garnered much interest despite their status as an indie band with hit releases such as "Beautiful Day," and "My Love," capturing the hearts of the general public with heart-warming sounds and vocals that help to unwind after a long day.
On the November 21 installment of KBS" "Yoo Hee Yeol"s Sketchbook" indie band Urban Zakapawere featured as guests on the show. They performed a few of their hit songsand expressed their gratitude towards SISTAR"s Soyu for participating in the track "The Space Between".
Urban Zakapa said, "Last September, Urban Zakapa received a lot of love with "The Space Between", a collaboration song featuring Soyu. For the male members, Soyu filmed without her shoes on and always wore shoes with low heels. We were touched."
The members continued to comment on Soyu"s tall stature, comparing the height difference between Jo Hyun Ah, the band"s female vocalist. They said,"And when performing with our female member, Jo Hyun Ah, it creates an illusion of (Soyu) looking 180 cm tall."
The middle of the album is where the strongest and most diverse songs lie, with tracks 4-6 being absolutely exceptional. In terms of pushing Urban Zakapas usual boundaries, two songs stand out in particular. The first of these is Everyday, one of Urban Zakapas boldest diversions from their usual style. It opens with electronic instruments and a gentle drum beat, demonstrating how to push mellow indie into an exciting new direction. Everyday sparks daydreams of enjoying long, lazy spring days outdoors, complete with generous scoops of ice cream. The harmonisation in the chorus is absolutely heavenly, but of course, this is one of Urban Zakapas most famous talents.
The next track, Play, takes this upbeat, fresh vibe even further. The cheeky feeling of the song is captured in the title itself, with it being a bouncy and fun tune to bop your head to. The screech of electronic guitar and thumping bass line grips you from the beginning, with the trios voices chirping happily throughout, even surprising the listener with some quirky vocalisations later on in the song.
The albums sixth track is the sweet and relaxing Like a Bird. Although it is more similar to Urban Zakapas usual style, it retains a fun and fresh style, being one of the three strongest songs in the album along with Everyday and Play. The song has a gorgeous floaty melody, which one can imagine playing softly in an ambient coffee shop. The pleasant whistling and soft twinkling of piano keys is also amazingly soothing.
