After over a year since their last comeback, iKON is finally back! We at THP have been looking forward to iKON’s return, and their fourth mini-album Flashback is nothing short of iKONIC! (See what we did there?)
The group’s latest EP features five tracks with a wide range of genres. It’s so hard to pick our favorites, and we can guarantee that Flashback is another no-skip album. But let’s get into specifics!
The Title Track
Summer, is that you? No, that’s just iKON’s nostalgic title track, which we adore! ‘But You’ is about not being able to forget an ex-lover. Even if you find someone new, you find yourself hoping for another chance with them. It’s got a fresh, retro vibe that suits everyone’s voices so much. ‘But You’ is going straight into our good vibes and party song playlists, for sure!
The Bangin’ B-Side ‘Dragon’
‘Dragon’ might be one of our favorite b-sides from iKON’s Flashback. It’s such a banger! And the fact that Bobby, Jay, and DK co-composed this song makes it even more fire. We can already imagine how lit the live performances will be now. That begs the question: when are we getting an iKON tour announcement? Our bodies are ready, though our wallets might not be!
The Melody In ‘Gold’
We can’t get over how catchy ‘Gold’ is! The instrumental is so fun and easy to vibe with. We can definitely appreciate the play on words in the chorus with “gold” and weekdays. Of course, our multi-talented kings Bobby and Winner’s Seungyoon are the ones behind such meaningful lyrics. And Seungyoon helped compose this bop, too!
Flashback is one amazing comeback, and iKON is always worth the wait! Their new EP did not disappoint, and we’ll be awaiting the tour or online concert announcement any day now.
