Be Excited: Here's Phoenix's Setlist For Their Antwerp Show Tonight

A post shared by Phoenix (@wearephoenix) on

Check out the setlist at the end of the vid~

New Songs:
"Ti Amo"
"J-Boy"--according to Pitchfork, Phoenix reps have said that the song that everyone has guessed to be "J-Boy" in the Calvin Klein commercial is not in fact "J-Boy." But perhaps it's just not the song title of the Calvin Klein commercial, and "J-Boy" does exist? Like, maybe the CK song is just a draft & if you know about Bankrupt! Diaries, their drafts usually have similar, yet different names from their album feature counterparts.
"Role Model"
"Ti Amo Piu"
& a mystery song...

p.s. I'm glad Branco decided to cut his hair
p.p.s. AHHHH. Excitedddddd!!!!

Watch Pristin's Debut Showcase & Listen to Their Debut Album 'Hi! Pristin'


Pledis Entertainment's new girl group Pristin (Twitter/YT) debuted on Mnet's M2 fancam channel, performing "We" and "WEE WOO"

Some of their choreo is awkward, and I'm not exactly a fan of their songs, although they are catchy. "We" is typical kpop girl group "purity" fare, while "WEE WOO" is the kind of energetic-cutsey pop that is more grating on my ears, rather than melodic. With that being said, I still think Pristin has the potential to be one of the best kpop groups. 

I think even with their cutsey act, they also demonstrate a strong feminity that, unfortunately, my current favorite kpop group TWICE lacks (Have you ever watched their SIXTEEN performances? I love their cute concepts, and would love to see more, but I want to see them truly demonstrate their talents with stronger (as in vibes, not skills) works.) Also, even though I'm not a fan of the energetic-cutsey pop, I think it also demonstrates the greatness of Pledis for allowing for them to self-produce. If you watch their talk during the showcase & any other videos of them from before, you can tell that all the girls are quite energetic. It means that their true colors are showing in their music, which is rare in kpop.

All in all, while I may not like their debut music as much as I'd like to, I like the girls, their camaraderie, and the freedom they have in production. I also believe in their skills and in a great future for the group.

Congrats on debuting~
