July 31, 2017
When LDH launched E-girls in 2011, the group was meant to be an entertainment project that gathered the members of Dream, Happiness and Flower. In actuality, over the last six years, this project group in name was more well-known and active than the official groups from which it drew members. In June, LDH restructured the organization chart of its girl groups by creating the new project collective of E.G.family and redesignating E-girls as a group under that umbrella. Besides the reshuffling, the E-girls member lineup was slimmed down to 11 with the exit of eight members including Ami.
Less than two months since the announcement of the new changes, the 11-member E-girls start afresh with the single Love Queen, and, fret not, the group's cool and confident style and sound have stayed intact. The playful uptempo dance song comes together nicely with catchy beats and a bright, refreshing chorus that has an 80s pop vibe. Karen's strutting rap section adds a sashaying step to the likable dance bop that's cleaner and more cohesive than many of their singles. Though not as edgy or ambitious as Go! Go! Let's Go! and Pink Champagne, Love Queen is an improvement over last year's E.G. summer RIDER from the same composers (Henrik Nordenback, Christian Fast), and makes for a great summer cruising song.
Among the single's B-sides, Smile For Me has the potential to be a fan favorite. Written and co-composed by michico, the sweet and light EDM pop number has an uplifting melody, appealing beats, strong harmonization and, perhaps most notably, warm lyrics about treasuring one's short and limited time together. This positive entreaty to not cry and to smile for the days spent together, of feeling close even if one is far away, is the kind of song that resonates with graduating students and those bidding farewell to friends while beginning a new journey, like the current E-girls.
Tomorrow will be a good day continues the positive spirit with a bubbly pop song. Erik Lidbom is a frequent composer on LDH artist songs, including E-girls' last single Go! Go! Let's Go!, but this particular collaboration runs on the generic side, despite the funky brass flourishes.
Composed by The Rooftop, Piece of your heart is the hidden gem of the single. Building from a gentle yet pulsating ballad opening to a synth-heavy bridge to an upbeat pop refrain, the song fuses EDM and J-pop sensibilities with fluid beats and a distinct arrangement that stand out without overtaking the vocals.
Though it may take some time for fans to adjust to the smaller group size, Love Queen represents a strong start for the new-look E-girls.
