TRI.BE is back with their first comeback of 2023 and opens a new chapter to their journey with their 2nd EP W.A.Y.
Well known for their powerful performance and charismatic stages, TRI.BE comes back with a surprising change by focusing on showcasing their limitless youth. The title track ‘WE ARE YOUNG’ is an easily relatable tune as it sings about how everybody can make mistakes when they are young; at one point of time, everyone has been new to what they are currently used to, unwarily making the wrong decisions, experiencing both fear and excitement while taking on challenges and trying out new things. Instead of being afraid of failure, ‘WE ARE YOUNG’ encourages both TRI.BE and ‘us’ to bring out the confidence of facing new moments by shrugging off pressure with the chant “we are young!”
With the recent official logo change and their musically colorful 2nd EP W.A.Y, TRI.BE is keen on showing the audience how young and bright the members really are. Through numerous contents, both offline and online, TRI.BE’s fans are already aware of how jolly the group is and the new touches to their music, looks and branding aims to synchronize TRI.BE’s performances to their actual and natural moments. Being authentic to who they are as people is an important message that links to the catch phrase “we are young.”
“STAY TOGETHER” serves as an intro to the EP by expressing the excitement of a new challenge, referring to TRI.BE’s intended change to take place from now on. The title “WE ARE YOUNG” is a throwback to the 2000’s via techno pop, simple drums and morphed vinyl sounds – the choreography comes from none other than the Lia Kim, the renowned dancer & choreographer from the world famous 1MILLION Dance Studio. “WITCH” is a rather different inclusion that was originally aimed to trick the fans into assuming the comeback’s concept. Pre-released on TRI.BE’s Youtube channel well before the release to serve this purpose, “WITCH” utilizes majestic strings and choir in an indie pop genre style. “WONDERLAND” is another addition to the new chapter of TRI.BE by highlighting a light and bouncy melody through a nu-disco groove and dreamy pad sound. The final topping is “WOULD YOU RUN (Original ver.)”, which was supposed to be TRI.BE’s debut track back in 2021. As “WOULD YOU RUN” is the title track of TRI.BE’S 1st EP VENI VIDI VICI, the original version is a gift to the fans who have been curious of what only TRI.BE knew until now.
