DRAW YOU: REMEMBER ME Album IMPRESSIONS
Draw You: Remember Me is filled with six tracks, the last one being an instrumental version of the title song “Draw You”.
The “Intro” includes multiple ambient sounds, making the listener believe they are stepping into a new world. In a way, the group’s album is a whole world of its own.
The title track “Draw You” charms with its bright beat, sensuous feel and warm piano melody. It contains a message of love from a man to the woman he loves. Additionally, the song focuses on showing the vocal talents of each member.
The soothing bass and gentle melody, combined with the members’ voices, brings a lovely modern ballad under the name “Remember”. The song would bring comfort to listeners as the idols sing of a love that will continue throughout the seasons.
The medium tempo track “Another One” blends modern rock, house and pop elements to create a more festive mood, fitting for late spring and early summer. The playful song would be perfect for the season of smiles and laughter.
The new arrangement of “Be The Light” is a special present for D1CE’s fans. Through the meaningful lyrics, the members express their desire to be the light for their fans, just like they have been for them.
Moreover, this acoustic version conveys the gratitude that the group felt for all of the support and love they received even better.
“Draw You” MV AFTERTHOUGHTS
Just like the sweet messages in the lyrics of “Draw You”, the music video uses soft colors to bring out the sincerity of the song. The five members inhabit soft-colored rooms, singing their feelings of love.
The simplicity of the video makes viewers focus on the feel that the group wanted to bring through this song. To emphasize more on the drawing part, picture frames are also occasionally seen in the clip.
Finally, all the members occupy a single frame themselves. Seeing the boys in their own room-spaces made us wonder if that is actually the inside of a picture itself, with them being the muses.
