On Wednesday, August 23rd, the HIPHOP/R&B-inspired girl group XG released the digital single and music video for their third pre-release track, "NEW DANCE," taken from their 1st Mini Album "NEW DNA".
"NEW DANCE" is an uplifting dance track that features prominent guitar riffs and hi-hats, accompanied by a catchy chorus that adds color to the entire song. The lyrics convey a message of enjoying yourself and dancing as if nobody is watching.
The first track taken from the Mini Album, "GRL GVNG," had XG arriving from outer space. "TGIF" marked XG's evolution. This third track, "NEW DANCE" comes with the theme of 'Xploring' various locations on Earth.
With majestic locations like a sunset beach, rooftops under clear blue skies, as well as venturing into the city and dancing in the streets, this work is an exciting and fresh production that encapsulates the vibes of the summer of XG.
