Music Finds #8 – Gotta have that oumpf
“Music Finds” is a new series, with new posts here on the blog each Wednesday. The concept is as follows:
As I listen to a lot of music, I from time to time finds a piece that sticks out, sometimes because it’s quirky, mixed two very unlikely genres, unlikely instruments, or just damn right having an awesome sound. Expect any kind of genre to appear here. These songs is what I will be sharing with you in these posts called “Music Finds”.
One of the things that catch my interest is if it got that “oumpf”. But what does that mean?
Well, it means that a song got that little something, the ol’ razzmatazz that brings a real horrorshow performance to my glazz.
Today I will present you to miss Ailee, as the featured song of today is Ailee – Don’t touch me.
This is a song that packs some serious power, which is just what I look for. Especially when it comes to Kpop, I look for attitude, and this song got it.
This song starts off with the heavy piano and bass (which I’ll be damned if I didn’t clapped to it), which then develops into the chorus, and here comes the big vocal guns, before we’re back at the verse again, but now with even more tempo. Part of the “oumpf” is the tempo – it needs to feel like something is happening, and even more is to come. Overall, this song is made to be played on repeat, it has an empowering tone to it.
I talked with SaSa (known for her interest and knowing of Kpop through her “kpop Monday“-series) about Ailee and as I was mentioning “the oumpf”, she told me about the release “Mind Your Own Business” which I checked out.
If you’re looking for that infamous oumf, this is a good successor to “Don’t Touch Me”.
That’s it for this week – tell me what you thought, was this an artist you’ve heard before? If you would like to discover more new music, check out the previous Music Finds:
