That’s right, U-Kiss has returned with a new music video for “DORADORA”, their latest release off of their sixth mini-album. Coming back with way more than a few new hairstyles, this U-Kiss track is quite the addictive tune. You have been warned!
In the teaser for “DORADORA,” it’s very clear that U-Kiss is back to their old tricks again, using mechanical dubstep like sounds to make this catchy tune bounce. What struck us as different this time though was how subtly “the sound” was sprinkled over AJ and Eli’s rap. Of course not all K-Pop fans are huge dubstep heads, so the move was smart. It gave fans a teasing taste of the genre, while not overpowering the rest of the song. And while the song starts on a spiraling minor note at the beginning and ends with an extremely infectious chorus, in its entirety the song certainly holds up to their more “masculine charms” (read: hip rolls).
Aesthetically speaking, even their eclectic blend of fashion was surprisingly tasteful despite numerous contrasting styles. Switching back and forth between four unique collections was risky, but somehow it worked (kind of like the contrast between Kiseop’s electric red hair versus Eli’s platinum blond or AJ’s blended, orange buzzcut).
All in all, “DORADORA” is a great send-off for U-Kiss, who will be returning to Korea for the first time in six months since their successful promotional run in Japan first began.
