Discover Our Top Selections from V’s Latest EP “Layover” at the Exciting Listening Party

V goes low and slow in “Layover”

After captivating us with his debut singles “Love Me Again” and “Rainy Days,” Kim “V” Taehyung has finally graced us with his full vision in his latest EP “Layover.” While it may not be the typical sound we’re accustomed to from V’s performances with BTS, it offers a refreshing and welcomed deviation. Not to mention, it’s the perfect soundtrack for cozy cuddle weather. In this edition of the Listening Party, we delve into our favorite tracks from V’s “Layover.”

Rainy Days: Capturing Loneliness and Stagnation

“Rainy Days” perfectly captures the essence of longing and stagnation on a dreary, rainy day. The atmospheric and moody vibe, created through the use of white noise and sounds from daily life, combined with V’s soulful and deep tone set against the backdrop of piano, evokes a sense of loneliness and longing.

Remember how I used to make you laugh the most? / I have no right to say this, but / Let me make up for all the lost time / We can start again, open all the doors / Don’t tell me it’s over, we can start over / You’re my four-leaf clover / Yeah, I can feel your touch, I remember your kiss / Those hurtful words, and I miss you

Love Me Again: A Playful Melody

Contrary to the overall downtrodden feeling of the EP, “Love Me Again” stands out as the most engaging track. It presents a playful melody both in its vocals and instrumental, providing a much-needed respite from the melancholic atmosphere of the project.

You left me / Took those memories with you / But even now, I can’t let you go, let you go / Is that all you have to say? / One word, that’s it? / If ever you regret this / Won’t you let me know? Let me know?

For Us: The Perfect Blend

“For Us” may not be the most lyrically impressive on the EP, but it compensates with its blend of elements. The slowed-down tempo, bass, muted drums, and choral arrangement behind V’s lead vocals create a body of work reminiscent of artists like The Weeknd, Pink Sweat$, and HONNE.

You went from my home to / It was nice to know you / And it breaks my heart / That we gave it our best shot / Now you’re in California / I’m still waiting for you / Will you change your mind? / I would give it all up / For us

Slow Dancing (Piano Ver.): Longing and Nostalgia

Despite its gloomy tone, “Layover” also evokes emotions of longing and nostalgia. Both the original and piano versions of “Slow Dancing” are great listens, but the piano-centered instrumental adds an extra layer of depth, especially when envisioning a slow dance.

Turnin’ me up and back off like this / What do you want? Do you not like it? / Stop teasin’ me, girl / Now, you made me leave my heart out here / Step on me and I’ll lift you up / Find someone new again (Got it on, did you?) / We were so much alike / Now we’re just distant neighbors
