It seems that I wasn’t the only one who thought that the girls were on some kind of hiatus (or still on tour?) for quite some time. Yes, they did release Love and Girls back in May (which I didn’t feel warranted writing about but for the sake of consistency I’ll put up.)
After reading Noobsauce’s comment I did a google search and discovered that Girls Generation had posted a video only within hours of Noobsauce’s observation.
I’m happy to report that Galaxy Supernova, the newest single and video from the super group is great! Yup, I’m not a music critic so I don’t need to use metaphors or write in-depth analysis of lyrics. All I need to do is write that I think it’s great. I will make one observation about the video, though.
While the song is much the same as previous offerings from them the video shakes things up a bit. Taeyoon has been the ‘leader’ of the group, if you could use that term, for the longest time, but in this video Sooyeung receives the most screen time which isn’t a bad thing, after all she’s gorgeous, but the extra footage of one member means less of others and in this case it’s Sunny, Tiffany, and even Taeyoon, who we are used to seeing front and center, now, if not in the back seat are riding shotgun on this one.
