SF9 Mini Album Vol. 8 - 9loryUS (Random Version)
Dancing in the Summer Breeze
July 30, 2020 Picked By Violet See all this editor's picks
Miss those days when digital music charts were full of K-pop summer anthems ? This summer, we have SF9 who comes back with a bright, fresh yet chic style in 9loryUS!

"The summer fragrance is making me dance! Bang Bang Bang! Let's giddy up, giddy up, giddy up now!" Composed by FNC's founder Han Sung Ho and RBW's Kim Do Hoon, "Summer Breeze" (Track 1) gives off summer energy in a mix of house beats and synth sounds accompanied by acoustic guitar melody. Han Sung Ho is also the main lyricist of the song along with N.Flying's Seung Hyub, Young Bin and Zu Ho. This summer bop is catchy, uplifting and addictive. It totally makes me want to dance in the summer breeze!

What makes a summer jam isn't just how upbeat and cheery the melody is – it's the vibe that reminds you of this particularly passionate and heart-fluttering season. Produced by Justin Reinstein (The Boyz's Reveal), mid-tempo number "Into The Night" (Track 2) is filled with romantic lyrics co-written by Young Bin, Jae Yoon, Zu Ho and Chani: "Follow the stars, write our own story. Write down on that star so we can't erase it… Into the night, the love story that only the two of us know." This song makes you feel as if you're chilling under a starry summer night with your lover on the beach.

My Story, My Song (Track 6) is easily one of my favorites from this album. SF9 comforts Fantasy's hearts with the warm lyrics –"My love song for you / The song for only one person / The song that only wishes for your happiness / Well this is my story / It's my song to tell you, no matter what / I hope you don't get sick and be happy." In Seong, Tae Yang and Jae Yoon's high notes sound very comforting in this pop ballad.

Produced by Willie Weeks (Monsta X's Follow), deep house number OK Sign (Track 3) delves into a more dreamy synth-style ambience. The song has a dynamic rhythm and lyrics about wanting a crush to give him a signal tonight. Besides writing rap lyrics for all the songs in 9loryUS, Zu Ho also lifts our spirits with his self-produced side track "Go High" (Track 5) about breaking free from our boring, repetitive daily life. 9loryUS also features the house groove plug "All Day All Night" (Track 4) which is fused with hip-hop elements that give off a funky retro feel.

"Summer Breeze" has to be one of the best summer hits of this year so far. Before 9loryUS was released, I doubted if this energetic summer-themed album would actually suit SF9 because of their chic group image. But I was wrong – they’ve successfully blended vivid summer music with their own distinctive style.
