My thoughts on TWICE’s “Signal”

With the recent TWICE comeback, I figured I would do some writing as I try to combat this cold. I will just give my general thoughts this time, because I don’t want you guys to spend too much time reading a bunch of nonsense. So with that said, let’s get to it!

  • The MiMo (Mina + Momo) “rap”

Can you feel my heartbeat?

Momo and Mina’s lines near the start of the song surprised me a lot.  It was different from what you expect (Nayeon would usually start the song). The voices of the two members mixed really well, and it was just really good to listen to.

  • “찌릿 찌릿 찌릿 찌릿”

This dance move though… What the hell?! hahaha.
I mean, It has a similar feel to “Knock Knock”. You could probably use that dance move in Knock Knock if just slowed it down.

Here’s the move as contrast:

  • Superpowers

I really like the superpower concept in this comeback. Could do without the alien love story though (not that I have anything against aliens). Also, I don’t fully understand Nayeon’s power. Can she reverse time with that pen? Or is it the “Men In Black – Wipe Your Memory” pen so it feels like time is being reversed from our perspective?

  • That Ending…

I only have one thing to say… This is the literal definition of “WTF”. If you type in “wtf” in google, all of the search results should come up with this. I get that this was supposed to reveal that TWICE are aliens themselves (hence the love story), but this just takes things to another level.

  • Overall thoughts

As a fan of TWICE, this comeback wasn’t as hard hitting to me as their previous ones. The song sounds like a remake of “Touchdown” from their Page Two album. Was I disappointed? maybe. Give “하루에 세번 (Three Times a Day)” a listen, it’s from the same album. That song is probably one of my favourite B-side TWICE track so far. The music video did appeal to me though. If you take away the alien concept. The styling, and visuals were on point.
