Brown Eyed Girls received much love earlier this year with their song “LOVE”, which reached No. 1 on online charts. The girls have returned this month with their second mini album, My Style. The title track of the album is “How”, which was composed by the Brave Brothers, who are known to make trendy songs, including Big Bang’s “Last Farewell”. “How” will charm listeners with its strong melodies and the girls’ vocal skills. In addition to the title track are other notable numbers. Up to the end, the song “You” was in tough competition with “How” on being the title track. “You” was composed by Lee Min Soo and Saintbinary, who also wrote the hit track “LOVE”. With rhythmical guitar instrumentals along with drum and bass beats, the song is finely polished. “Barely”, on the other hand, was composed by Yoon Hee Sung, who is famous for drama songs. The song has electronica and bossa nova sounds and soul melodies. It is very soft and expressive. One can hear Miryo’s emotional rap skills with the girls’ vocals. The last song is “I Won’t Love Again”, which was composed by Kim Jae Suk of vocal group WANTED. The song fits the fall season well and is expected to receive much love from fans.
