You know, sometimes you stumble across a song that speaks to your current mood and/or soothes your troubled soul and today I found one that did both, HIGH4’s brand new collaboration with Lim Kim, “A Little Close”.
A smooth, slightly jazzy R&B track, “A Little Close” is one of those songs that’s like honey for the ears. It’s such a sweet and oh-so-easy song to listen to that before you now it, you find yourself almost floating away on a little cloud of K-Pop heaven and that, my friends, is a wonderful thing indeed. (Especially if you’ve been fighting off a cold for almost a week and have spent most of that time feeling like your head was going to explode. Just saying…)
You might recognize HIGH4 from their earlier collaboration with IU, that sweet little ditty “Not Spring, Love or Cherry Blossoms” but honestly, I like “A Little Close” better. I don’t know if I’m just in the mood to be soothed and wooed or what, but I like the more manly concept of HIGH4 in “A Little Close” and Lim Kim’s voice adds just the right balance of smooth and sultry to put this song over the top.
If you’ve enjoyed HIGH4’s collaborative works so far and you’re wondering where you can get their album, have no fear, it’s on its way! At the end of the”A Little Close” video, HIGH4 promises the release of their first mini album sometime in August. Personally I’m hoping their album comes out on the first but we all know that the world of K-Pop loves to tease fans ruthlessly before releasing anything so I’m afraid we’re just going to have to wait and see when HIGH4 makes their big debut. Until then, I’m off to listen to “A Little Close” another couple hundred times and try to see if I can’t get this stupid cold to float away on a little K-Pop cloud of its own.
So tell me, what do you think of HIGH4 and Lim Kim’s collaboration? Do you like it? Do you hate it? I’m always interested in hearing your thoughts so be sure to leave me a comment below!
