Boy group Mirae hosted an online showcase to release the group’s third EP “Marvelous” on Wednesday.
While the band has been hot, showing off solid performances before, this time it’s more about being dreamy and refreshing, as if the band members are relishing the party, Junhyuk explained.
The title song “Marvelous” is a dance-pop track with powerful rhythms that expresses the group’s ambition to open a new era. It’s also eye-catching, especially with the repetitive hook, Dohyun said, adding with a laugh that the fun part would swim through many listeners’ heads.
The EP contains six tracks and the band members co-wrote the lyrics to “Dear My Friend”.
“It means more since I participated in the process with the membership in mind,” Dongpyo said.
Last year, Mirae was a top prize contender on a TV music show with “Splash”, the title track from the second EP.
“We would really like to come in first” with the new EP, Lien said.
