3. 향수 (nostalgia)
4. 어떻게 지내
‘Interlude’로부터 시작된 크러쉬 여행기의 출발점.
이상과 자아를 찾아 떠나는 크러쉬의 이야기가 담긴 이번 앨범은 25살의 인간 신효섭에 대해 탐색하는 시간이다. 지금 자신의 현실에서 그리는 이상, 그리고 과거에 꿈꾸었던 이상으로부터 비롯된 여행. 초심을 되돌아보며 느낀 마음 속의 울림을 표현한 ‘wonderlust’는 최소한의 악기 구성과 보컬에 집중하여 대화하듯 풀어내었다. 트랙들은 한 곡인 듯 매끄러운 흐름을 선사하고, 음악에 서슴없이 담아낸 크러쉬의 이야기는 듣는 이들로 하여금 차분하고 여유로움마저 느끼게 한다.

October 27, 2016
Last May, Crush surprised the K-pop scene with the innovative Interlude, which wittingly combines mainstream and experimental music. Returning with the soulful ballad-filled mini-album Wonderlust, the talented singer-songwriter once again amazes fans who expected another electronic music-inspired album. In the ever-expanding world of electronic music, pure organic music has become rare. However, Crush brings back acoustic sound for a nostalgic mini-album that reminds listeners of bygone days.
Crush begins his music journey with the intro track Wanderlust (Track 1), an enticing song that fuses both acoustic and electronic elements. Introduced by a delightful tambourine opening, the joyful melody featuring piano, electric guitar, handclaps and dreamy synth sounds evokes a strong desire to travel. Despite the limited lyrics, Crush's incredible vocal skills are fully exhibited through his rich self-harmonization.
The dreaminess of Wanderlust vanishes in the tranquil acoustic guitar-based 2411 (Track 2). On bus #2411 which he took every day to tutorial school, Crush dreamed of becoming a singer but at the same time he couldn't help thinking about his family's objection. Therefore, "2411" represents not just the bus, but also his struggle between reality and dreams. While rapping about his exhausting school life, Crush mentions a lot of places he passed during the bus ride. Names like Machang-dong, Wangsimni, Oksu and Apgujeong Rodeo Street may sound unfamiliar to overseas fans, but the song can still recall people's forgotten dreams.
Though the lullaby-like "Nostalgia" (Track 3) heals lonely hearts with its beautiful string melody and Crush's warm vocals, the album's gloomy mood still continues in the title song "Fall" (Track 4), which evokes the bittersweet memories of a lost love. Accompanied by a soulful piano tune, the sorrowful ballad recreates the loneliness of autumn.
Crush's seasonal songs are always impressive, such as the summer anthem Oasis featuring Zico and the winter duet "Just" featuring Zion. T. Wonderlust is another masterpiece that musically captures the essence of fall. Compared to the psychedelic Interlude, this album is less experimental but the nostalgic vibe produced by its analog sounds is perfect for the fall season. Crush once expressed worries that his incompetence in English might hinder overseas fans from understanding his songs. However, he has proved that music is a universal language comprehensible to all people despite the lack of lyrics.
