K-pop girl group Dreamcatcher have returned with their brand-new single ‘BEcause’.
On July 30, the girl group released the the music video for their new rock- and synth-inspired single ‘BEcause’, from their new ‘Summer Holiday’ special album, which dropped at the same time.
The video features the K-pop act in various locations, including an abandoned amusement park and hotel that is clouded in smoke. The group, known for their horror-inspired concepts also reference several well-loved tropes in a handful of scenes throughout the music video.
“Smile when you see me, smile at me / It’s just the two of us in this dark room / If you play with me today / I’ll give you something sweeter tomorrow,” Gahyeon and Yoohyeon sing on the pre-chorus.
‘Summer Holiday’ includes a total of six tracks, a number of which were co-written by the group’s members, specifically Siyeon and Yoohyeon and JiU. It is Dreamcatcher’s first release since their sixth mini-album ‘Dystopia: Road to Utopia’ alongside its title track ‘Odd Eye’ that dropped in January this year.
The group’s first full-length album, ‘Dystopia: The Tree of Language’, was previously named as one of the best Asian albums of 2020 by NME. The 12-track record experimented with a number of genres, including EDM and rock on ‘Scream’ and jazz on ‘Jazz Bar’.
Dreamcatcher originally made their debut as a five-member group known as MINX in 2014. They later re-debuted as Dreamcatcher in 2017 with their first single album ‘Nightmare’. During this time, they rebranded with a new rock-inspired sound and darker image. New members Handong and Gahyeon also joined the group following their rebranding.
