It’s been exactly two years since DAY6 debuted their first sub-unit with Young K, Wonpil, and Dowoon, and who knew that before they left for their military service, they had prepared a gift for us. ‘Darling on the Beach’ is a brand new song by DAY6’s Even of Day for the summer but also to celebrate their second anniversary. And we’re loving every single part of it. When we needed them the most: they came back.
This song is quite literally all we needed to brighten our day and our life. It falls perfectly with songs from their second mini-album, Right Through Me. It has a somewhat retro influence similar to b-sides from their last release. However, ‘Darling on the Beach’ has this fun, bright, and summery twist to it that makes it truly special. They serve when it comes to the vocals, as always, and the instrumental is perfect, as always. The emotion we felt while listening to ‘Darling on the Beach’ is quite indescribable – the industry really needed DAY6 back.
Unfortunately, we can’t stream ‘Darling on the Beach’ in other platforms other than YouTube. But believe us, the music video might be the best part of this whole release. It has the most unserious music video, and that’s what makes it so good. This parody-type video of two of the members, Young K and Wonpil, falling for a mysterious girl, while Dowoon quite literally just sits and judges them is simply hilarious.
While the song is already bright and fun – and a masterpiece – the music video ties everything together in the most humorous way.
DAY6‘s seventh anniversary is right around the corner, and with Sungjin’s discharge on the same day: we can’t wait to see what’s to come next for the band. We might have to wait a bit longer for the rest of the members, but who knows what else they have prepared for us.
