Headlining the album is the title track “My Turn” which was written by WJSN’s Exy. Comprising sounds that are intense as its message, CRAVITY’s energy can be felt throughout the song. With its minimalistic use of instruments, heavy bass, and addictive beats, the track indulges with a dynamic listening experience.
“Call My Name” has a restrained and calming melody despite falling under the EDM genre. Upon listening, you’ll get hypnotized by the members’ gentle vocals and rhythmic rapping.
Heavy-sounding and a certified banger, “Mammoth” screams confidence that will put you on a bustling mood. It reveals a ferocious blast of CRAVITY’s remarkably compelling presence.
Characterized with incisive and authoritative raps, “Bad Habits” intrigues with its intro. The track highlights a different and novel singing style for each member. The lyrics “Its a little dangerous, drop out I’m a savage / breaking the set frame is my habit/ We the baddest” encapsulate the unwavering courage of CRAVITY in paving their own path.
“Moonlight” is about waking up and enjoying each other’s company against the backdrop of a moonlight that poured all night long.
The next on the list is “Dangerous”, a magnetic track with groovy rhythm that make listeners more and more addicted to. From its hooks “I’m dying for you, you, you” / Kill me with your love, kill me with your touch”, the track definitely carries itself on the top of the list.
Closing off the EP in a light feeling, “Give Me Your Love” is a perfect song to tone down with after all the intensity from the previous tracks. Vocal-centric, the track features the soothing and pleasant-sounding vocals of the members. It has a sweet and romantic nature owing to its acoustic guitar sounds.
“My Turn” MV Afterthoughts
Equally compelling and captivating, the music video for “My Turn” showcased the emerging power of CRAVITY in dominating the stage. They certainly outdid themselves this time!
Ranging between racing and basketball theme, the music video displayed modern elements- from luxurious sports car to a futuristic stage design. With stunning visual effects and intense performance, CRAVITY’s dynamic energy and unique rookie spirit were demonstrated.
From the get-go, the song encompasses a catchy tune and hyped-up melody that is truly hard not to bop with. Matching its intoxicating beat, CRAVITY played with red and black colors, as well as the lights that are all engrossing to look at once.
On a substantial aspect, the camera work was nicely done. The transitions of each scenes were smooth. Meanwhile, the choreography was also lit and exciting. I also love their wardrobe choices, not to mention how they definitely pulled off that racing outfit!
While the song mainly explores the confidence of the boys, it also expresses their growth throughout the entire ‘Hideout’ series. It is a manifestation of their strong spirit and determination as they work they way to the top.
