[MV & Album Review] Akdong Musician – ‘Summer Episode/Dinosaur’

AKDONG MUSICIAN – SUMMER EPISODE

"DINOSAUR" is basically, like most tracks in K-pop these days, tropical house. Well, that's to be expected as most tropical house tunes are just the perfect fit for summer. Even though it is following the trend, the tune does have some uniqueness to it, in that they don't go for the usual faux reggae beat that's so common for that musical style. Instead, they still do them. The tune is cute, talking about a dinosaur that used to menace them and their family in their dreams. A sweet, playful tune.
