[Review] No More – UNI.T

One month after the male side of The Unit: Idol Rebooting Project show (UNB) made their official re-debut with Sense, it is time for the girls (UNI.T) to make their long-awaited re-debut. UNI.T compromises of Yang Jiwon (former member of Spica), Woohee (Dal Shabet), Yoonjo (former member of Hello Venus), ZN (Laboum), NC.A, Lee Hyun Joo (former member of April), Lee Suji (former member of The Ark), Euijin (Sonamoo) and Yebin (DIA). The mini-album release, Line, features the title track No More.

No More takes on the reggae-pop genre. While it does feel underwhelming at first, the song does grow quite a bit on you. Admittedly, it isn’t the catchiest piece of music released in the past week. However, it does feature a decent hook that appealed to my taste, at least. Like most songs, I thought the chorus was the main highlight. Rather than due to the actual music, it was the melody and vocals of the members that I liked. That may be due to fans picking a solid vocal line, as there wasn’t a rap section in the song. The ‘No More’ repetition is definitely growing on me and I loved how they voices did that part justice. The pre-choruses had that extra backing, which felt so much more interesting than the preceding verses. The only section which I thought was the messiest was the bridge with the unnecessary extra chimes and cymbals. All in all, it was a decent debut track that did the job nicely.

The video takes on a mature yet sensual concept. For some of the members who tend to fall towards the cutesy side of the girl group spectrum, this would be interesting. However, everyone fitted in nicely and no one looked out of place. I don’t know about you but I think it is clear that their company is favouring UNB, in terms of budget. UNI.T gets only one music video (so far) and it looks underbudget, especially with some of the scenes. Also, the editing for this looks rather poor. I don’t like how the camera angles were a little abstract but then no one shot remained for more than a second. Together, this creates a little mess that is really hard to miss.

I like how their performance started off with smaller groups and you don’t really get to see the whole team bridge. Despite the same moves appear for the chorus, you don’t really grow tired of it, regardless of how simple it turned out.  Like the video, the choreography takes on a sensual vibe, which looks amazing. Overall, I thought it was one damn good piece of choreography.

Song – 7/10
Music Video – 6/10
Performance – 9/10
Overall Rating – 7.1/10
