Red Velvet have unveiled the spellbinding music video for their new single, ‘Feel My Rhythm’.
The otherworldly visual opens with the girl group trapped in a classic painting, before the familiar melody of Bach’s ‘Air On G String’, which the song samples, kicks start the song. The members then lounge in their own striking, fairytale-inspired sets as dancers dressed in creepy bird-like outfits waltz around them.
“Feel my rhythm, come with me / Imagine everything / Follow this song and dance to the moonlight / Right now, play my rhythm,” they sing over a backdrop of dreamy, orchestral strings on the chorus.
‘Feel My Rhythm’ is the lead single of the girl group’s new mini-album ‘The Reve Festival 2022 – Feel My Rhythm’. The project marks Red Velvet’s first music release since their August 2021 mini-album ‘Queendom’, which featured a lead single of the same name.
The group were initially scheduled to hold their first live concert in over two years prior to the release of the new album, however that has since been postponed after members Irene, Yeri and Joy tested positive for the COVID-19 virus earlier last week.
“The future status of the event will be decided after reviewing the COVID-19 situation and the artists’ health,” shared SM Entertainment. However, the release of ‘The Reve Festival 2022 – Feel My Rhythm’ will continue to go ahead as scheduled.
Meanwhile, Red Velvet member Joy has stated her ambition to release more solo music in the future, following her debut album ‘Hello’ in 2021. “When I release another solo album again, I want to release a new song that I’m the first person to sing, and I want to organise it focusing on my favourite genres,” she said.
