AB6IX asks you to ‘CLOSE’ your eyes and ‘HAVE A DREAM’
BNM‘s Boy-Group AB6IX made a comeback with their 4th EP “MO’ COMPLETE: HAVE A DREAM” on 26 April 2021. The title song ‘CLOSE’ also gets an accompanying music video. The EP contains 5 tracks, which will be mentioned later in the post.
The EP is the first in a planned two-part series, that serves as a follow up to their debut album ‘B: COMPLETE‘. Member Lee Dae-Hwi has actively lent his songwriting and composing talents in three of the five tracks. Park Woo-Jin has also actively participated in the rap sections of the songs.
Listen to the album on Spotify
‘CLOSE’ by AB6IX is an upbeat, dance track with deep-house foundations. It has elements of fantasy in each of its domains- be it the music, the lyrics, or the video. The bell sounds or chimes in the music definitely a tool for the fantasy factor. The song asks the listener to close their eyes and have faith in the singer, as they promise to protect them. It takes them on a fantasy journey with their eyes closed. It’s possible that this refers to escaping reality and having a trip in the dreamland. While Park Woo-Jin is responsible for the rap, the lyrics, composition, and arrangement are done by Coach & Sendo.
The music video takes place in a realistically impossible world. As the members are shown sleeping in the beginning, this again may refer that the premise is indeed a dream. The elements that make it unrealistic, and instead a fantasy world are the scenes with flying fishes, an unlikely huge moon, etc. There is also a red thread shown throughout the video, which could possibly be the red thread of fate. Comment down what you think about it!
