[Review] From Now – VERIVERY

Last night, we saw the return of VERIVERY with From Now. This is the group’s first comeback since their debut earlier this year with Ring Ring Ring. In case you missed their debut, VERIVERY is a 7-member male group from Jellyfish Entertainment. They were also previously active in 2018 with their pre-debut single, Super Special.

From Now is very similar to Ring Ring Ring. It has the same style of retro dance pop that their debut track had. I do think, because of this, the song did feel rather dry to an extent as it didn’t really bring anything new to showcase the members. However, there were some interesting parts of the song that I think it enough to make this track be considered somewhat different to their debut track. I think the rapping scenes had a more hip-hop centred melody, which I think really went well and gave the song a little more substance. While the instrumentation was also similar between song, this one felt a bit more vibrant and in-your-face with it. I also thought the synthesizer dance break right after the first chorus to be very appealing. I thought the vocals are very strong and went well with that ‘in-your-face’ style of instrumentation that I have already identified. I think the group could have gone with a different style to provide variety in their discography, From Now was still pretty good.

I thought the music video was rather appealing for this comeback. I felt the colour was more profound and bold, which really set the tone for the video. It also felt more suiting to the retro sound. This is also the first music video that I saw the ‘In My Feelings‘ challenge appear. Maybe the trend never reached South Korea but I thought it was something unique and fresh in the video.

From what I can see in the music video, the performance looks pretty good. I think the dance break will be the best section but everything else also looked like it was fitting for the vibrant and energetic song.

Song – 8/10 [Updated – See why on VERIVERY’s Album Review]
Music Video – 8/10
Performance – 8/10
Overall Rating – 7.3/10
