VERIVERY – ‘G.B.T.B’

Deep Diving in “G.B.T.B.”!

The Music 

The song lies in between the intersection of electronic and dance music. It has clean EMD sections. They have used radio voice effects to add to the original layering.

They have winged everything, from rap to singing effortlessly. The song has a nicely arranged melody layered on a strong baeline with vocals flowing in at the topmost layer.

The Video

It is a science fiction music video. They have used antennas and reactors as a backdrop in various to continue from their previous music video “Thunder” where they follow member “Minchan” into an abandoned powerhouse.

There is a certain repeated visual where members seem to break a seemingly translucent wall. This translucent wall might be some kind of a barrier in representation.

One of the most eye catching parts of the video is them dancing in a world that is tearing down to nothing but chaotic rubbles.

The Lyrics

The lyrics are straight to the point, they are asking who is going to pull the trigger to that fate-determining shot in the chorus. They ask one to cross the barrier and break one’s limits.

Here is a small excerpt from the lyrics-

So we keep on running for
So we keep on running for
Go beyond the barrier
Go beyond the barrier
Who’s gonna pull the trigger
운명을 가를 shot

(Fate determining shot)
No more barriers
Who’s gonna pull the trigger
