Sibling duo Akdong Musician released a video cover of Taeyang’s song “Eyes, Nose, Lips” as the first of what promises to become a series of covers from YG artists.
When YG first announced the project, I was wondering how AkMu would handle the cover given that their young age and the songs’ meaning seemed to be an awkward match. While both Lee Soo- hyun and Lee Chanhyuk handled it somberly in keeping with the serious theme, they put their spin on it with a little mash-up and rap mid song. Soo-hyun in particular, always sounds lovely but I don’t know if this is a type of song I would want to hear from them again. Despairing love songs is usually a better match for older (and sadly, more brokenhearted) singers. That said, it’s nice to see some experimentation among YG artists – who knows where this little bout of boldness could lead? (cough-mixtape-cough.)
