Break those chains, GFriend!
You know, it’s going to look to posterity as if I totally slept on this comeback, but just so you know, weeks ago I was immersed in writing a jammin’ homage to “Fingertip” (a la my “remix” of Oh My Girl’s “I Found Love” which I lyrically reworked into an homage to President Trump) to punish my latest hasbara troll at the chateau.
So I don’t want future readers (if only me) to think I gave “Fingertip” no proper attention at the time. I haven’t posted enough of it, and yes, that was at part because at first I wasn’t sure of the song’s worthiness relative to its august predecessors (and while it’s not as great as “Navillera” or “Rough”, it’s a strong and distinctive and very fun track). Plus the choreo is, of course, terrific. So I haven’t completely slept on “Fingertip”: I’ve enjoyed it, I’ve jammed to it mentally, I’ve even written verse to its beat. Eunha and SinB’s raspy yearning, Umji’s lightened hair: these things are immortal. GFriend hwaiting!
