Girls' Generation surprised us last month with the release of their new Japanese single, "My Oh My." The sugary track went against the more mature EDM-driven sound of most of their J-pop releases, and instead sounded like a sweet filler track from one of their Korean releases. The Divine Nine's now returned to the edgy sound we love from their J-pop music with "Gossip Girls," a brand new track lifted from their upcoming Japanese album, Love & Peace.
The girls throw out chants and commands over a relentless beat of thumping dance-pop and rapid handclaps. Things get even more turnt up on the bridge as SNSD wail over electro squiggles and military drums, before their voices are sped-up like the track's playing in fast forward.
Dear December 11, please hurry up so we can buy Love & Peace. Yours sincerely, Popdust and all SONES.
