2NE1 have released a few videos in quite quick succession, the most recent being ‘Missing You’ today.
I’m still holding back complete judgement of this video, but my first impression is disappointment, especially compared to previous releases from this very talented group.
For the first minute, I was enjoying the song, it felt like it was building up to something – the piano building a crescendo in the accompaniment and the vocals getting gradually more powerful. But at the point where the song should have peaked, the vocals calmed back down again and the accompaniment slowed, creating quite the noticeable anti-climax.
This video will create a lot of talk because of CL’s nudity in some scenes, and honestly that will probably be the only reason why.
The fashion is an interesting mix of punk and sophisticated, which I quite enjoyed, there are some nicely framed, artsy shots within the video, and I am loving Dara’s purple hair, but the overall feeling is of disappointment for now.
