The EP highlights aespa’s evolution from every angle as vocalists, performers, and storytellers. It also prominently displays their incredible aptitude for sonic versatility. Among many standouts, “Trick or Trick” bobs and weaves between manic future-facing production and unpredictable cadences. A buoyant guitar riff and glitchy beat power up the sultry groove of “Don’t Blink,” while “Hot Air Balloon” floats away on catchy hooks. The dance floor-ready “YOLO” builds towards an ecstatic refrain. Then, there’s “You.” Acoustic guitar wraps around piano punctuated by finger-snaps and dreamy strings as towering vocals soar. These six tracks unlock another level altogether for aespa.
