“Relay” FIRST IMPRESSION AND AFTERTHOUGHTS
The With Woollim project did a splendid job, especially in terms of sticking to its goal of providing a healing experience to listeners. Transcending language barriers, the song itself will be enough to make anyone feel comforted.
Its music video was simple but effective in spreading its message as well. The artists are purely singing, showing a bright image and lighting up the darkness, as they thrive to make their fans smile.
The lyrics “You’re not alone / I’m by your side” are just a small part of all the supportive lines during the song. “Relay” will warm listeners’ hearts and make them feel a part of something.
During hard times, a person always feels helpless and alone. With its soothing message and calming tune, this is the perfect song to listen to when one needs a gentle lift of their mood.
Through the lyrics, the artists affirm that it is okay to take things slow and take a break when things seem too hard. Additionally, the words to the song also showed that a short distraction to ease their mind is what a person needs in order to put a smile on their face.
With this group project, With Woollim proves once again the importance of music. There is a reason why it is called a universal language and that shows while listening to “Relay”.
